Pre-Departure Information

Complete our pre-departure surveyHave a place to study in the US next year? Whether it's for a full degree or an exchange programme, we want to help and hear from you!

Pre-Departure Survey: The US-UK Fulbright Commission, EducationUSA and US Embassy London would like to invite you to complete a survey on US study. Tell us where you are studying and why you wanted to study in the US – and you could win £500! Survey respondents will be invited to join a Facebook group for British students heading to the US.

By completing the survey, you could be asked to become an EducationUSA Student Ambassador. As an ambassador, you would submit a couple photos and one article a month (easy!) describing your time in the States. By highlighting current UK students studying in the US, the aim of this project is to inspire other British students to pursue study at an American university as well.

The survey will take only a few minutes to complete. And your responses will help us better promote US study and help future students. Good luck with your studies in the US, and we look forward to hearing from you!

Pre-Departure Guide: After you complete the survey, read on for advice on preparing to go to the US including: tips on travel to the US, practical information, academics, living arrangements, campus life and US culture! Some of the advice has been provided by fellow study abroad students. If you have suggestions for how to make this section more useful, please email us.
