I had the pleasure of talking this week with VOA Special English, who wanted to know about the types of questions international students ask when applying to study in the U.S. You can listen to the report they put together from our conversation here:
After the interview, they also asked me to share some of my favorite websites for international students. I figured you all might want to see as well, so I thought I’d post the list here, exactly how I sent it to them in my email (well, I corrected one typo…).
A lot of these are also in our Resources section or under our “useful websites” tag (check out both of those links for more sites to look at). Let me know in the comments what other websites you like!
The only must-know site for all international students:
If you only know one additional site:
Study in the States (Department of Homeland Security)
Where to research colleges/universities:
Department of Education College Navigator – detailed statistics on US colleges
College search tools tailored for international students:
Other good search sites:
Where to research scholarships/funding:

So, what websites did I forget that you really like?
