The US College Landscape and Application Process

An exclusive Crimson Education talk at SEK-Dublin International School for students and parents Monday 7th March 8:35 - 9:35 am

Where do you see yourself?

Increasing numbers of UK students are studying at US universities, and its no surprise why. They offer an outstanding education, extracurricular opportunities and incomparable career opportunities. Did you know that graduate salaries often far exceed those in the UK?

One of the defining features of US universities is the liberal arts curriculum, which allows students to explore a range of subjects in the first two of years. This flexibility appeals to the growing numbers of students who are, understandably, unsure what they want to study, or those who are good at a range of different things! It's no wonder the US is such an enticing study destination.

The question is, how do you decide where to apply? With over 4,000 colleges to choose from, this can seem a daunting task. In this talk, we will walk you through the key things you need to consider when weighing up your options - from academic strengths, campus life and location to links with industry and research opportunities. In doing this, we will also introduce you to some of the most popular colleges out there, and share you into some of their best-kept secrets.
