Study in Georgia

georgia-big-thumbInternational students interested in studying in Georgia often have a good sense of what it is they are looking to get out of their United States study abroad experience, not the least of which is lower cost of living and the experience of traditional American southern living. They may have already done research into specific graduate programs at one of Georgia’s many reputable institutions of higher learning, such as the University of West Georgia (Carrollton, GA), Georgia State University (Atlanta, GA), Kennesaw State University (Kennesaw, GA), Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus (Atlanta, GA), and University of Georgia (Athens, GA).

Not only have international students in Georgia (coming from countries all over the world, including Brazil, India, and Latvia) been successful in securing technology leadership scholarships for women at Georgia State University, growing numbers of international students interested in studying in Georgia from China are also showing increasing interest in living in this state, especially after learning about Peking University’s agreement with the Georgia universities of Emory and Georgia Technical Institute to create of a joint biomedical engineering program. The coming together of these highly reputable biomedical programs not only produces wonderful windfall for domestic and international students in Georgia interested in this field of study specifically, it also serves as a unique precedent in the effort to create globally recognized and internationally respected ‘world-class’ PhD programs.
