What should you pay attention to when studying in the United States?
In recent years, the number of students studying in the United States is increasing year by year, and even many parents send their children to American high schools (also known as 美国高中) when they are in high school. When you first come to the United States to study, in addition to a series of enrollment matters, you also need to pay attention to your life overseas. If you want to start your study in the United States smoothly, you can’t ignore all aspects.
Every year, a large number of Chinese students go to the United States to study. For those who are new to the United States, they need to know what they should pay attention to in life, their legal status and their work.
International student insurance (also known as 留学生保险) must be purchased. Everyone in America has to pay for their own health care. Except for a small number of low-income U.S. citizens or permanent residents, the U.S. government does not subsidize health care for people who cannot afford it. In the United States, where medical care is so expensive, dental visits (also known as 美国看牙) can literally put you in a financial bind.
Study abroad, safety is the first, always have a sense of safety. You can know in advance whether the school provides Shuttle Bus or escort service at night. Try to avoid the night, especially in the early hours of a lonely place to walk, try to walk together after dark.
Then there’s the question of your legal status. As an international student, no matter in the campus part-time internship or off-campus work, first of all to confirm their own study visa, different visa allowed by the work permit is different, must comply with the relevant provisions, otherwise will be disqualified to bring unnecessary trouble. Of course, if conditions permit, you can also apply for a green card, but the green card application is difficult, and the green card schedule (also known as 绿卡排期) is very long, you can entrust an immigration lawyer (also known as 移民律师) to help deal with, in order to reduce a lot of unnecessary trouble.
