Are you planning to study in the United States?

On this website the American Library offers an overview of the application process, links to sites with specific information at the library and an Infothek.


Overview

To study at a US college or university, you usually must have 
  • Abitur or Fachhochschulreife for an undergraduate program 
  • Vordiplom or six Fachsemesters (Bachelor) for a master's or doctoral program 
  • Diplom, Magister, or Master for a doctoral program.
To apply to a U.S. college or university, you must 
  • research schools and programs and contact admissions offices for application materials (start at least 18 months before you plan to attend)
  • take required tests (TOEFL, SAT, GRE, GMAT, or LSAT) (these can be taken only at specific times each year; start at least a year ahead of time)
  • submit applications (forms, essays, transcripts, and letters of recommendation) (deadlines are usually between November and January)
  • acquire financial aid or prove your means of financing your study
  • attain the appropriate visa (once you have been admitted)
N.B.: if you apply through an organization like Fulbright, there are shortcuts to this process!
