Higher Education – EducationUSA


EducationUSA is the Department of State’s official advising network providing accurate, comprehensive, and current information on higher education.  In India, three EducationUSA partners administer seven centers in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai employing more than 30 student advisors.  We encourage all students considering higher education in the United States to check out EducationUSA online followed by engagement with one of the centers.  Bhutanese students are welcome to connect with either Delhi or Kolkata.  Experienced advisers will guide you through the entire admissions process; everything from helping you select the right institution to providing you guidance on preparing your personal statement to filling out financial aid forms to what to pack in your suitcase.
