The U.S. Department of State’s EducationUSA network has revamped its web presence for international students, U.S. higher education professionals, and foreign governments and institutions at educationusa.state.gov to prepare American and international students for today’s global economy and better promote U.S. higher education abroad. The interactive platform helps engage and inform international audiences about U.S. higher education, connecting them with EducationUSA advisers and centers around the world. Key information is provided to U.S. higher education professionals on regional educational and student recruiting trends.
The EducationUSA website has been a major asset to the network with over 1.8 million visits in 2014 alone. The new site has updated content translatable into 90 languages, including EducationUSA’s signature “Your 5 Steps to U.S. Study,” that walks prospective international students through the process of applying to and preparing to study at an accredited U.S. institution. Visitors have access to abundant resources about U.S. study, including financial aid opportunities, testimonial and tutorial videos, campus news, and notices of upcoming events at EducationUSA advising centers around the world.
The State Department’s EducationUSA network includes hundreds of advising centers in 170 countries around the world that provide prospective international students with accurate, current, and comprehensive information about the diversity of accredited U.S. institutions of higher education, while supporting U.S. higher education professionals’ international student recruitment and internationalization efforts.
