Three essential links to boost your US recruitment efforts
The process of applying to an institution in the US is no walk in the park for any aspiring international student. From picking the right course and choosing the best-fit school, to applying for a visa and securing work opportunities – there are simply too many factors to consider when pursuing a degree abroad.
As recruiters, it is important to help your students feel that moving to the US to achieve their academic goals is neither a burden nor a hassle. Ensuring that all requirements are submitted, no deadlines are missed, and every detail is accounted for can be daunting tasks, but they don’t have to be.
Here are three useful links that will help your recruitment (and your students’ application process) go smoothly:
US visa appointment wait times
The US Consulate strives to keep the visa appointment wait times as short and efficient as possible. However, these wait times are still estimates that do not guarantee appointment availability. Keep in mind too, that not all visa applications can be completed on the same day of the interview.
For these reasons, international students must plan for their visa application in advance. With the influx of nonimmigrants all rushing to have their visas processed, your students must prepare for their appointment early to avoid any unnecessary last-minute conflicts in schedule. Check the estimated wait time for US visa interview appointments here and help your students plan for their travel more strategically.
Education USA events
Do your students find some aspects of their US study applications confusing, complicated, or even intimidating?
Are some of them having second thoughts about studying in the US altogether?
Education USA regularly hosts events around the world that guide and encourage aspiring international students to push for their desired degree in the US. What’s more, many of their events are easily accessible online. Here, students will find valuable in-person and online events and training to help them feel more confident about their decision to study in the US. These events include step-by-step guides to studying in the US, online Q&A sessions with US education advisers, seminars on addressing cultural differences in the classroom, application workshops focusing on the US admission process and many more.
