COST OF STUDYING & LIVING

Tuitions fees can range from $10,000 to $55,000 per year.

Depending on where you choose to stay (on or off campus) accommodation will typically range from $3000 to $8000 per year.

 

EMPLOYMENT PROSPECTS

Students are allowed to work while studying and after graduation.

However, you should keep in mind that as long as you hold an F1 visa, you’re not allowed to accept off-campus employment without permission from the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). You will be allowed to work on campus without seeking prior permission from USCIS though. If you’re married, your spouse will not be allowed to accept employment at any time.

Your work should be part-time and must not exceed 20 hours per week during regular sessions, although you may work for up to 40 hours during breaks.

Many students also opt for internships and study exchange programs.

After graduation, you can apply for the Optional Practical Training (OPT) visa that’ll let you work in the field related to your area of study. This is valid for 12 to 17 months. If you intend to study and work for a longer period, you’ll have to look for a company that’ll hire you and sponsor your H1-B or work visa.
