The US higher education system

Colleges in the USA

✓ Education lasts for four years, but many students study for a shorter duration.

✓ Types of colleges: Community college (from two years) and Junior college (two years).

✓ At the end of the second year, the student receives a "two-year degree" - an associate's degree. You can go to work with it or continue your studies.

✓ Often, after two years of college, students apply to university for a bachelor's degree. Americans and foreign students prefer this way of learning to save money.

Bachelor’s degree in the USA

✓ Education lasts for four years.

✓ For admission, you must have a certificate of secondary education (Americans accept certificates of other countries as well).

✓ Usually, for admission, you need to take only two exams: SAT and TOEFL.

✓ Some universities have an adaptation course for international students with a focus on academic English. The advantage of such classes is that after this academic year, the student immediately enters the second year.

Master’s degree in the USA

✓ Education lasts for one to two years.

✓ Documents must be submitted no later than six months before the start of classes.

✓ A specialty in a master's program may have nothing to do with a specialty in a bachelor's program: after studying physics, you can easily study economics.

✓ American master's Degree provides a real job opportunity in the USA. After getting a master's degree, a graduate can look for work in the United States for a year.

PhD or Doctorate in the USA

✓ Education lasts from three to seven years (medicine).

✓ The graduate gets the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

✓ The main advantage of studying for a doctorate in the USA is the opportunity to receive full funding for the course. Upon admission, international students are automatically assigned a minimum scholarship — Teaching Assistantship (TA).

✓ The process of applying for a PhD can take from one to one and a half years.



I had a consultation with LinguaTrip on gaining admission abroad. They explained everything clearly, and helped me to sort out things that I couldn’t get my head around. Very nice people, whom you can trust and would like to continue working with.


I made up my mind to apply to study abroad and had been thinking about how, where, and what I need to do for a long time. As a result, I bought a LinguaTrip marathon, and in three months, I learned everything I needed to know and more. They explained the whole process in detail, clearly, and in a simple way. There was an opportunity to write and ask the curator questions. That helped a lot!


I got a pleasant impression of working with LinguaTrip. It is nice that the consultant had the experience of enrollment in the USA. I liked that I communicated with only one manager rather than several managers at once. After the consultation, I received links to useful articles.


I very much liked the atmosphere at the marathon, and was satisfied with LinguaTrip’s work as just in two months, all the documents for my application were ready 🔥 As always, many thanks to LinguaTrip for their help and support 🧡 I can recommend LinguaTrip courses and marathons to all applicants as you will get your desired results quickly


Thanks a lot for your marathon. I was glad that there were such helpful curators at the marathon. There is still a lot of work to do before applying, but with your help, I already know how to make my application stronger. I know all the stages and can refer to the lectures as a handbook where everything is laid out clearly.


I was happy to take part in the marathon. You presented all the necessary information. Special thanks to the curators who were available 24/7 and always helped and answered questions. After the marathon, I got a full pack of documents prepared for an application. I will take part in other marathons with pleasure and buy handbooks on English Thank you for your work!


I want to thank LinguaTrip for their professional help, emotional and friendly support at each stage of the admission process. One of my dreams came true - I have been admitted into the MBA program at Boston University, School of Business. LinguaTrip helped with choosing the right program according to my wishes and abilities, with editing my CV and motivation letter. As a result, I was admitted to all the programs I had applied to.

The coolest part about the marathon is that after it, you have a set of prepared documents checked by curators! After I watched the lectures, the process of admission became clear and not so scary. If I still had questions, the curators answered them quickly. All the participants could communicate in one chat, and that also motivated me a lot. I can highly recommend all LinguaTrip marathons and courses.


The marathon was very useful, with a lot of information. Also, I got a lot of recommendations and tips at the weekly meetings. Thanks a million to the whole LinguaTrip team.
