Applying to study in the United States can be a challenging process. There are numerous tasks involved, and these vary greatly from one higher education institution to the next.

An imperative first step is to carry out extensive early research into which institutions and courses of study are right for you. Ideally, you should start you research quite some time before application season (most courses of study begin in mid or late August), and most applications are sent in November or December of the previous year). The research stage is also the first part of the process in which you may find it helpful to engage professional assistance: a knowledgeable tutor or application advisor can radically simplify the task of finding the right university and course among the massive range of options on offer across the US. Tavistock Tutors is highly adept and experienced at providing this kind of service.
