tourism24-01-111413-2578Each year tens of thousands of students from around the world attend U.S. universities. So what can you do if you would like to study in the U.S. but don’t have a way to visit campuses in person?

There’s no need to worry. There are lots of ways you can learn about U.S. universities, without having to pay to fly there to tour campuses.

  1. Join a virtual college fair or online chat. Check to see if the university offers text or video chats with their admissions counselors and/or current students. You might also want to ask about talking with a current student who is from your home country to learn about their experiences.
  2. Watch a virtual tour of campus at sites like YouVisit. You can watch a 360 view of campus or even use a virtual reality headset!
  3. Find out if the university’s admissions teams travels to your country. Many universities have admissions counselors who travel around the world to recruit new students.
