2) Free online university courses
To register for a course – or several courses, you need to go to the institute’s website, apply the filter by subject, choose the course you are interested in and register on the portal. For each course, a trailer is visible along with the program and a series of reviews by those attending it or who have finished it. They are also asked to indicate the degree of difficulty of the course and the type of commitment it requires.
3) Loan facilities for students
If you don’t get a full scholarship, complete with cost and accommodation, get ready to spend some big bucks. The student visa will allow you to work legally only at school. So, unless you have another support system to cover the costs, you will need a loan.
In the USA, it is full, but most of the companies that make loans only grant them to American students or students who already have a visa. I had only found one willing to borrow me before obtaining a student visa, with a very high-interest rate and very bad conditions! Well, you say, what’s the problem?!? Apply for a visa and then apply for a loan. But it’s not that simple.
Everyone always wants to study in the USA. Here, I have explained the process and scholarship to study in the USA from Bangladesh. In short, coming to study in America for free or at any rate by cutting costs by a lot is difficult, but not impossible.
