Work and study in the U.S.

The U.S. is one of the best locations to study and work abroad at the same time. Aside from the high quality of education in the country, there is no shortage of opportunities in its diverse and multicultural environment.

The latest data in 2013 show 275,000 J-1 visa participants coming to the US from more than 200 countries and territories, including the Philippines. In 2016 and 2017, more than a million international students flocked to the US, with most of them studying engineering, business and management, math and computer science, social sciences, and physical and life sciences.

Students who plan to work and study in the US under the F-1 student visa (academic courses) are allowed to work on-campus; after a year, they may work off-campus in curricular practical training (CPT), optional practical training (OPT), or science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) optional practical training extension. Whatever course you choose, an American education is an asset anywhere.
