How to study in Orlando
Every university in Orlando will have a different admissions process, so you’ll need to apply to each one individually. As a basic rule, you must have finished your secondary education and meet the entry requirements of your chosen institution.
If you’re hoping to take an English-taught program, your university might ask for proof of your language proficiency. Most institutions accept the TOEFL and IELTS tests, but some may have their own examinations.
Once you’ve received a formal admissions letter from your university, you can start applying for your US student visa. The F1 visa allows you to remain in the country for the entirety of your program.
Cost to study in Orlando
The tuition fees you pay will depend on where and what you choose to study. However, most international students pay somewhere between $18,000 and $25,000 per year on a bachelor’s program.
The cost of living in Orlando is much cheaper than in other major US cities like New York, San Francisco, Boston, or Washington. It’s sensible to budget around $10,000 for housing each year, and then factor in your food, transport, and school supply costs.
