    Hi, currently i am a year 12 AS student in the UK, but i would really like to travel to the USA to study as an undergraduate. I have looked into applying for scholarships etc online but i am still confused as to how it happens and if there is certain universities that will take me or not.
    Any help anyone can give me would be great thanks!

    I found these sites to be helpful. http://www.fulbright.org.uk/study-in...graduate-study and https://www.collegeboard.org/

    Unless you have £100,000 to spare then you are limited to a small number of US colleges which offer substantial scholarships to international students. Unfortunately they are all extremely oversubscribed and very difficult to get into. Unless you have some outstanding extracurriculars and very good grades, there's not much point applying.

    For information about the application process, look in the Studying in North America forum and visit this website: http://www.fulbright.org.uk/study-in...graduate-study

    You might also consider doing a degree in the UK which involves a year abroad in the USA.
