Study in USA For Free

Studying for free is possible if you are an intelligent bright and hardworking student. If you are in USA or want to come for studies, little research can save millions of rupees. Women are encouraged to study in USA and often get approved for funding easily.

This section will cover the exact and straight forward details to give you better idea about how things work.

Undergraduate studies in USA:

Undergraduates are those students who complete their high school (Intermediate in Pakistan) and take admission in college for bachelors (Four years education).

For taking admission in graduation you must have twelve years of education with good marks and heaps of money. No funding is provided for the undergraduates and no scholarship is offered as well so it’s almost impossible for a Pakistani to afford millions of PKR’s on studies. Students usually acquire jobs, they work and study at the same time to cover the expenses of their education. Some people prefer going to community colleges that are cheaper than the regular universities and gives the same degrees. To study as an undergrad you need to provide proof of funding and submit the fee as an international student that is almost two times higher than the normal fees.

Graduate studies in USA:

Masters and PhD students are known as graduate students.

To take admission in Master’s you must have 16 years of education and 18 years of education for PhD. There is another program Masters leading to PhD, in which you can start with masters and ends as a PhD that usually saves time (one year or more). Admission in graduate studies is not difficult if you have remarkable grades and a positive attitude. You can apply for funding or scholarship to complete your studies for free.

Funding & Scholarships for graduates:

Thousands of international students are studying in United States without paying anything. They even get funds to cover their routine expenses while working for few hours or not at all working. World Wide Web has opened new horizons and people are able to acquire details on their own. The role of consultants is diminishing day by day however still we needs guidance to know about ways to be a part of study program that cover all of its cost.

Scholarships by HEC Pakistan:

You need to keep an eye on the HEC scholarship; HEC offers scholarships to Masters and PhD. You need to have good educational records and some prerequisites like GRA, SAT, GMAT, TOEFL etc. (It varies for different courses). You need to check your field and requirements in advance so while applying for HEC you must have everything in your hand. HEC advertise in newspaper when new scholarships are available however you can also check time by time on HEC website.

http://www.hec.gov.pk

HEC scholarship Pros:

  1. Awards monthly stipend
  2. HEC pays academic fees
  3. You can work 20 hours a week on campus
  4. You can work as a TA (Teacher assistant) full time and your professor can pay you along with HEC stipend at the same time.
  5. You can extend your stay for further post doctorate study or can obtain OPT (Optional Practical Training). OPT is issued for 29 months, in this provided time you can work as a regular employee to advance your studies as sometimes practical knowledge on field is very important.

HEC scholarship Cons:

  1. No medical insurance
  2. No air ticket or any other expense will be covered by HEC
  3. Have to come back to Pakistan and serve for a specific period (As Signed)
  4. Your spouse cannot work in any case if he/she has F visa (J visa holder spouse can work)

Scholarships by Fulbright:

Fulbright program is originally USA program offered for different countries; Fulbright has offices in many countries including Pakistan, they work together to fund and send students to USA according to cultural exchange program (J visa). Fulbright is one of the best funding / scholarship program available in the world as they really take care of student needs however their program has certain restrictions due to which students dislike this program. You need to read their terms and condition carefully before signing it. It’s not easy to acquire a Fulbright scholarship as you have to undergone many interviews and your grades are also considered however they offer some reserved seats for women to promote education in Pakistan women and to make it easy for women to study abroad. Like HEC they also advertise for scholarship opening on newspaper however you can visit their website for complete details.

Fulbright scholarship Pros:

  1. Awards monthly stipend
  2. Fulbright pays academic fees
  3. First arrival and final return Ticket will be paid. One return ticket after 2 years to renew the visa will be paid in full by Fulbright.
  4. Computer allowance ($500)
  5. Relocation expenses for first time arrival in USA ($300)
  6. Book allowance thrice every year ($1200 per year)
  7. Visa fee ($110)
  8. Fulbright pays Full Medical insurance
  9. Fulbright scholar’s  spouse can apply for $1000 a year funding for study (any course)

10.  Funding for conferences (Any conference in USA only, up-to $1000)

11.  Any other expense can be claimed by student which is necessary for studies like equipment etc.

12.  Your spouse can work; acquire a work permit for $350 (subject to change). No spouse expense of any type will be covered by Fulbright

Note: The amounts mentioned above are subject to change, check Fulbright website for updated information.

Fulbright scholarship Cons:

  1. You have to come back after four years of PhD program and 5 years for Masters leading to PhD program, no exception as your stay will be illegal after this time period. Even if you have not completed your studies you have to come back to Pakistan and complete the remaining studies being present in Pakistan, after completing Fulbright will give you the ticket to fly to United States for your graduation ceremony and degree
  2. You cannot work on campus like all other students who are on F visa, they can work for 20 hours a week (4 hours a day 5 days a week) but you cannot work, you can only study. The Fulbright scholarship is usually lower than the funding provided by the professors in the university and with this restriction people living with families face problems in expenses.
  3. You cannot do any sort of work, to get funding in summers, you have to opt for the research or you can do internship if you want but in case of internship Fulbright will not pay the monthly stipend for 3 months.
  4. Your spouse must have health insurance; failing to do so may result in visa cancelation and in extreme cases they can deport the spouse, such incident has never occurred however they ask you to sign this as a condition.
  5. You cannot take funding from anywhere else, if you do take some money from somewhere and Fulbright comes to know, they can cancel your funding and you will subject to return every cent they spent on you from day one.

Studying in USA for free without Scholarship:

That’s tricky but possible; all you need to have is information. Study in USA is so expensive that a common person cannot afford it, mostly students look for a scholarship. That’s right, being on safe side it’s always better to have a scholarship at first place however if you are not approved for a scholarship then how can you become a student?

To get this opportunity you need to work hard. First you must know your field and in which area you want to do research and have your masters or PhD. Search for the universities by ranking of the department you want to study in and explore universities that offers the degree you are interested in. Do not forget to check the prerequisites like most of the universities require some sort of tests like GRE, GMAT, TOEFL etc. If you fulfill the admission criteria of a particular university you can apply for the admission and once the university accepts your admission, you can contact the professor in your field for funding issues.

Almost every professor is listed in university website, read about the professors that take interest in your area of research or study. Their contact details will be available on their web page as well. You will need to compose an email in which you can tell him about yourself and express your feelings to come to USA for studies in his university and want to work with him on his research area. Professors always needs good student because they have to do research all the time to prove themselves.

Once you get contacted by the professor you can talk about funding if he can provide, if he cannot provide funding, there might be some other professors who can. Every professor has his own budget but they always want to inject more students to work with them. Sometimes professor funds the student completely so he will not have to pay any academic fees, however if he agrees for half funding then you can do TA ship (Teacher assistant) and still you will not need to pay academic fees. So there are ways to escape from the fees that can be around $20,000 for two semesters for international students.

You need to buy your own ticket and cover miscellaneous expenses from your pocket but mostly the monthly stipend is enough to cover all your expenses however its always recommended to bring some savings with you.

    please sir. i wants to get admission in usa espacially in computer science for mphil and phd program

  4. admin / Post Author

    Dear Sajjad
    To get an admission in PHD program the whole method is mentioned above. You need to give certain tests (GRE, TOEFL etc) according to the program need and then you need to contact the professors of universities on your own, If you want to apply it for free otherwise there are lots of consultancies firm that can do it for you but they charge heavy amount

  5. admin / Post Author

    First step always is to select a university where you want to take admission, see their criteria .. if you require to give any test that you most probably need to then give TOEFL & GRE or GMAT etc. If you clear these tests then start applying.

  8. Ferya Ilyas /

    Is there any scholarship program for students who are in school or colleges?

    1. admin / Post Author

      No, there is no scholarship for the students who wants to study undergraduate programs. The scholarship and funding starts from Masters and student can study throughout on funding till the Phd. end. Undergraduate studies for internationals are quite expensive as well because they are not charged with the in-state tuition (that is discounted for that particular state US residents only)

  9. admin / Post Author

    @Waqar – Internships are not easily available for student until you have relations with a company that send their interns internationally. There is already lots of competition for paid interns. However if you seek to attend summer classes in University then you can contact any professor of your field he can better help you.

  10. RABAIL ADNAN /

    sir , i m a married girl and hust 21 yearold , i want masters EDUCATION ON SCHOLARSHIPin abroad, my husband is MBA IN MARKETING. I WANT MASTERS IN ECONOMICS. CAN I TAKE THIS OPPERTUNITY?

    1. admin / Post Author

      Yes you can do Masters on funding, like I mentioned earlier on my post. You need to select different universities which offers Masters or (Masters leading to PhD) in Economics. Then you need to contact the Economics professor who can fund you. You will get F visa for studies in USA and your husband F2, your husband will not be able to work on F2 visa when you both will reach USA. You can also apply for fullbright scholarship, if approved you will get a J visa and your husband J2, on J2 visa he can work.

      Asalam-O-Alaikum Brother Abdul Sattar,

      Thank you for contacting Pakistani in USA and sorry for replying it, was trying to figure out a way through which I can help you but I am sorry you need to confirm it from a specific university from where you want to study as it completely depends how they treat your degree. Some of the universities give leverage however other may not accept it at all. It depends upon the state rules as well so it’s better to contact the university for complete details

      Thanks once again and sorry we could not help you in this regard

      The economic situation. In such economic crisis they might not issue a visa for work for someone outside the country when there are millions of people unemployed in USA.

      I do not want to give you any false hope that is why clearing you with the actual situation. The only way a person can come in United states is through a family member (If they are citizens) or if they come for study. You can look for the HEC and Fulbright scholarships as they offer some specific seats to women and there is not much competition. If you passed you will not have to pay anything from your pocket and will get a monthly stipend as well.

      Study this complete page for details, Thanks

    Hello,

    Really great information you have here regarding scholarships for students. I am a fellow International Student, and I happen to be receiving a scholarship here in the United States.

    I am currently attending St.Cloud State University, which offers in-state tuition for international students
    via the Academic & Cultural Sharing Scholarship, which saves almost $7,000 per year for undergraduate students.
    (Approximately $2,700 for graduate students)

    More information here:

    Hi
    I’m an Aersoapce engineer, and currently working in a local aerospace company here in Lahore.
    I intend to do MBA from a ranking US university.

    Kindly let me know if there is any possibility with a low (very) GPA in undergrad one can get a scholarship for Graduate degree.
    Also, can a good GMAT score get you an MBA scholarship.. ?? or funding.. ?? If yes, then what should be the minimum score.. ??
    Anxiously waiting for you reply.
    Thanks

    1. admin / Post Author

      Salam, scholarship in Pakistan is currently offered by HEC and fulbright only for graduate studies. What you can do is to get in touch with professors in the same field and they might give you finding and stipend to continue your studies without any charge. It’s very hard to get a scholarship or funding for MBA program, I have tried to search for myself but could not find any. However you can try getting admission in Masters or PhD for Engineering. Try locating the professors who might be working in same field and contact them via their email address which you can easily find on their websites. For example http://www.mae.ncsu.edu/ is the website for a university Aerospace department. Under Alumini search for a professor and contact him/her personally. He will guide you in details.

    1. admin / Post Author

      @Arsalan – To study abroad or in United states you must first complete 12 years of education equivalent to high school in United States or in Pakistan you must be either FA/FSC/I-com/A-levels etc. After that you can take admission in undergraduate program.

  17. Nadeem /

    Hi

    Which universities of pakistan are recognized in USA? I want to do my bachelors degree from pakistan, and then MS from USA. But i want to do bachelor from a university which is recognized in USA.

    1. admin / Post Author

      Salam Nadeem,
      Most universities in USA does not have any requirement about college from where you did your undergraduate. To get admission in MS/MA you must complete 16 years of education (4 years bachelors) from any university. They do not bother so much about the college because they check your capabilities with the test SAT, GRE or GMAT etc. You must score according to the requirement of the university depending upon your area of study. If you are studying in a good university there are chances you will get good scores in GRE/GMAT etc. On the other hand you will also need to fulfill the requirement of English language for which you have to give TOEFL test etc. so they test you before giving you admission. Hope this answer your question

    1. admin / Post Author

      Salam Sadia,
      I tried to cover all aspects of your question however let me explain with more details. Regarding GPA, yes universities have requirements but every university has its own criteria for each area of study like GPA requirement in physics or biology will be different. In which subject you are looking to peruse your Masters study in USA? If you have completed 16 years of education from Pakistan you will have to take admission in Masters. You can get funding in Masters however you must have the required GPA and test scores (GRE, GMAT etc). You have to search for universities that will accept your GPA and you must have complete the required tests as well GRE, GMAT, TOEFL or language courses etc. After you have your scores in hand you can search online for a university. Each university in United States is available online so it will not be difficult. Rest of the procedure is mentioned on page on how to contact the professor for funding etc. Thanks

    Hello Admin
    Recently we got a proposal for my sister. The guy is on fullbright scholarship and has already spent three year. He is persuing PHd Degree.
    They are saying that he ll take along his wife to USA
    I want to know that if Fullbright scholar can take along his wife afterwards and what is the system n other details

    regards

    1. admin / Post Author

      Salam,

      In response to your comment you have left on our website, need to let you know that your sister will not face any problem inshallah. Fulbright will issue a document DS-2019 for her after he will contact them after the Nikah. They will require the Nikah Nama etc. On the basis of that document Embassy with issue a visa. Inshallah she will get the visa within 1 or 2 weeks after visiting Embassy. I am a wife of a Fulbright scholar and maintaining this website. I was called by Fulbright office when my DS-2019 was ready. I went to Islamabad to their office, they provided the car with driver that left me at the embassy gate with his contact number. She will not even need to use the shuttle. I have never seen any wife having any sort of problem in issuance of visa. best of luck

      Best Regards
      Pakistani in USA

    Thanks admin , as fullbrights scholars are not allowed to work there so the wife of a full bright scholar will also get some amount or she will share the exisiting stipend with her hubby? also can u tell me about the amount of stipend bcoz someone told me that wives of fullbrigth scholars need to work to earn thr bread n butter

    1. admin / Post Author

      Fulbright scholars receive monthly stipend between $1000 – $1500 depending upon in which city they are living. They are not allowed to spend this money on their wives and Wives need to show a bank statement (around $13000) to get a J2 visa. Normally the stipend is enough for two people if they both are living in a smaller city and wife does not have to work. No one actually come and check weather husband is feeding his wife with the same money, but the idea is that husband should not spend this money to wife that is why the amount is not much. However if she wants to she can get a work permit for $360 that remain valid until the DS-2019 (legal stay) she just need to declare that this money is only for traveling etc and not for bread and butter and she will also have to declare that she will not spend this money on her husband. To check more details of work permit check below mentioned link.

    1. admin / Post Author

      Its not about the marks you have taken in Pakistan. Its about the marks for GRE or equivalent test you will give.

    2. admin / Post Author

      In United States, Pakistani numbers does not measure intelligence, you can have passing numbers still can study in USA :) What you will have to clear is GRE or GMAT in good marks to get admission in United States.

    hi Sir/Madem i m living in USA and i m Graduated from Pakistan i wana start my study again can u plz Guide me how i get Scholership ?

    1. admin / Post Author

      Salam Rizwan, If you are in United States and want to take admission in a college then it depends how many years you have complete? to get admission you will have to get info from a local college, depends in which field you want to continue, if you want to take admission in Masters you will have to give GRE of GMAT test + TOEFL if require. Different schools have different requirements so you will first have to decide in which subject you want to continue studying, on the basis of which you can gather information from different Universities. You will not even have to call them if you don’t want, send them email you will get from their website. Hope it helps, do let me know if you need to know anything else. thanks

      Is it 16 years of education. Tahira please go through the entire page you will get the complete answer of your question. You can apply after 16 years of education, MPhil is not neccassary. Depends completely upon university and department where you want to take admission. You will have to do GRE, its must and TOEFL or a language test depending upon which course and university you want to take admission in.

  41. tahira sohail /

    hi sir,tahira here thank u so much for reply.sir how many seats for 2012 or speacially for female?how much qota for female?thanx

    1. admin / Post Author

      There is no requirement for number of seats and there are numerous universities where you can take admission so I never heard of seats getting filled. There is no specific quota for women however they are given preference to create diversity in universities sometimes. Classes starts on either Aug (Fall semester) or January (Spring semester) twice a year so its not a n issue too. Depend when a university closes its application process, you will have to look it up on the university website for complete details.

  43. tahira sohail /

    Hello sir I have done mi llb hons and want to take an admission in US university! Kindly help me tht whether I need to take an exam for TOEFL or GRE? Thank you :)

  52. Anaya /

    Search for law schools in United States and then see their requirements as it might be different for each law school, usually TOEFL is must for international students in all United States universities. I have never seen any university taking students without TOEFL and GRE/GMAT.

    i am bsc (hons)in high energy physics.i wana do MS leading to PHD . i want to know that contact to the professors should be done after admission or before that???

    1. admin / Post Author

      you can go both ways, if you are looking for funding or wants RA ship, you can talk to a professor in advance if he can fund you, in such cases you can let university know in your admission forms etc about the professor who agrees to work with you. This option in better as the funding will be available to you before admission.

      The other way is to get admission and then look for professor who can fund you or can offer you RA ship that but in that case if no professor is ready to fund you then you will have to take care of the expenses yourself.

    i did master in mass communication can i apply?

    1. admin / Post Author

      Anyone can apply, you can check for universities that offers degrees in similar fields. Universities always welcome international students because of the money they have to pay as international students, if a Unites States resident pays $2000 for an international student pays $8000 for the same semester.

    Hi, i had done BSC and had also done IELTS and scored 6 band out of 9 !! can i get any scholarship, i want to study further in telecommunication , or IT !!!

    1. admin / Post Author

      Hello, you can check the requirements of HEC and Fulbright to see if you can get a scholarship, HEC now a days mostly offering scholarships for PhD however you can still check if there is any new program they are launching. You can follow below mentioned links for Fulbright scholarship details.
      http://www.usefpakistan.org/FulbrightAdvanced.html
      IT is always in demand, you will have to give GRE as well along with TOEFL before you get admission in any university, but as mentioned on the page, you can contact different professors that work in the same field you are interested in, they will be happy to assist you if they are able to fund you for your studies.

    hello i am a student of 3rd year pharm D at sindh university, i want to know that which universities in usa offer phd degree in pharmaceutical sciences also that post graduation programs require 18 years of education but if someone has 17 or 19 years of education then he or she can apply for phd program or not. thanks

  59. admin / Post Author

    To study in PhD you must have at-least 18 years of education, if not you need to first complete Masters and then you can get admission in PhD or you can say its Masters leading to PhD which normally add one additional year to your PhD, if you do Masters and PhD separately then it normally last for around 2 years. You can simply google the universities with keywords like “Universities PhD pharmacy USA” etc.

Hope the situation of country gets better, focus on your studies because even outside country if you do not have education you cannot get a decent job and visa etc. Best of luck for your future.

    1. admin / Post Author

      Salam Kashif,
      Thanks for the appreciation bro. I have not seen anyone getting admitted without GRE/GMAT. The reason seems that because they have to check your education level somehow to give you admission because you know every country has different standards for education.
      Thanks

    Indeed replying to every single query is a great effort…welldone admin…My question is that, I have done Bsc eng from pakistan and master from Europe in electrical engineering…Now I want to do another master from USA….do i need GRE/IELTS anymore?

    1. admin / Post Author

      Dear Bilal – Thank you for kind words and appreciation, that is what keep me going. Yes, I believe you will need to clear GRE again. One reason might be because every student has to do it before taking admission in Masters and Once GRE is given its results remain valid for 2 years and after that you have to give another GRE to get admission. You can visit any specific university’s website you are intended to take admission in, ask their admission team via email with specific details, they are usually very good in giving response.

    Is there any value of Pakistani Degree or Student (Medical/Engineering) in USA?
    Please let me know :)

    1. admin / Post Author

      Yes, thousands of Pakistani doctors and engineers are working in United States on reputable designations and earning a good livelihood
      To practice in USA hospitals, Pakistani doctors has to take USMLE and then they should complete residency for around 4 years, after that they become full doctors.
      For engineers they can directly get a job depending upon their capabilities however mostly engineers take admission in Masters in USA and then look for jobs. (Doing Masters is easy and you can do it for free)

      1. Abbas Ali /

        What is residency????
        Is it to live there hiring a home at rent???
        If so can we apply for green card and before that can we brought our parents and siblings there???

        1. admin / Post Author

          Dear Abbas, residency is what all doctors do after education, even in Pakistan, don’t you know?
          Yes, if you can’t buy a home you have to rent
          Your family or sibling can only come to visit you on visit visa. When you become citizen then you can get permanent visa for parents but not for siblings. Read the below mentioned post for details

    What is GRE and GAT test????
    Is it necessary for Doctors who are doing USMLE exams??????

    1. admin / Post Author

      GRE & GMAT are tests to access your aptitude as a student in American university. Every international student has to take one of these tests before taking admission in any University in USA because they don’t have other ways to access your degrees or capabilities as a student.
      For USMLE you don’t need to give any test because USMLE itself is a test and you don’ take admission in university to study USMLE.

    1. admin / Post Author

      You can apply for studies in United States but keep in mind the Undergraduate fees is extremely expensive and there is no funding available to the undergrads. You can say that only the yearly fee could cost you more than 10 – 20 lakh Pakistani Rs.

      Dear Arif, I have never heard any University taking students without TOEFL or IELTS as it is necessary because English is not our first language. Its your dream to study in USA, why IELTS is holding you back, you will have to study and work hard in USA to gain the degree so why not start now by giving IELTS exams.

      Dear Annie, complete your graduation first as Masters is not as expensive as Bachelors or if you can spend around 18 lakhs a year on education for 4 years then think about doing graduation in United States.

  82. Sheikh /

    Hats off to you Madam! You are doing a remarkable job.I visited your site today, actually for the first time, and your relevant, authentic and prompt responses amazed me.God bless you!
    I have two questions:

    Question# 1
    I did:
    -Matriculation with 70% marks
    -D.A.E(Mechanical) of 3 years study (equivalent to F.Sc) with 65% marks
    -BA (Economics) 2 years with 43% marks (3rd division)
    -CA (Passed three modules) 1 module to qualify CA(inter)
    -Peachtree Accounting Certificate

    I want to study in USA (King County, Seattle,WA preferred):
    -CIA (Certified Internal auditor) or
    -CMA (Certified Management Accountant) or
    -Bookkeeping,Accounts Payroll and like accounting diploma or certificates.

    -Which could be the best option in terms of costs?
    -Recommended Colleges?
    -Any scholarship/loan?
    -Status after completing certificate/diploma as the case may be?
    -TOEFL required?
    -Any negative effect of my 3rd division in BA?should not be attached with credentials?

    Question# 2:
    -My sibling is a green card holder (with 10 years expiry) and has been living in WA for the past 1 year.
    -Any benefit for me or mother?
    -Any medium sized business opportunity?

    Regards,

    1. admin / Post Author

      Thank you for appreciating my work, its always good to hear something nice. For the answers of your questions.
      Costs: Every university has their tuition fee listed on their website, if you want to live in WA then you can search for universities in WA and look for their fee to determine which one is cost effective for you.
      College: I cannot personally recommend any university as I don’t know anyone in this field. You can easily find the recommendations on google.
      loans/scholarship – Student loans are for USA residents only however you can look for scholarships on university website or they can offer TA ship in university through which you university fee is paid by university and they also pay you salary for 20 hours you work in university as a TA.
      Status: What do you mean? you can find a job after completing your studies and if some company is ready to sponsor you a visa you can worn in Untied States.
      Yes TOEFL will be required if you want to study in United States
      Your 3rd division should not matter as they might ask you to give GRE before admission, you must check the requirement on individual university website.
      Question 2: There would be no benefit for getting a visa however you might get personal benefit if you will stay in their home.
      Business: Students are not allowed to do business however they can work 20 hours a week.

      Hope it helps

  83. Sheikh /

    Wow!, another quick and satisfactory response from your side.
    Thank you
    One more question:
    what if my sibling(currently doing job in a Library) start business over there, would he/she be able to sponsor me/not?
    In either case (yes/no)please recommend a suitable business(any nature).
    Secondly,
    What if I study over there and gets a sponsored job after my studies there, When would I be able to apply for Green Card.
    -Find me some ways to call my mother over there(60 years but active and graduate in economics, having 15 years of administrative experience in a reputed high school).

    Thanks again and
    Regards,

    1. admin / Post Author

      1. Yes but their business needs fulfill some standards and a Desi business would be more suitable if they want to sponsor work visa. You can google for more specific information as such type of information can be best provided by a lawyer. See this link for details or google it.
      http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/hiring-foreign-workers-your-business-first-things-know.html
      2. If you complete your study and you are sponsored a work visa then you will have to continue doing job until you get a green card which depends case to case. It can take 3 years to 5 years to issue a green card. The current processing times are available in this website
      http://www.uscis.gov/greencard
      3. When you are a Citizen in United States (Get a passport) you can apply for her visa of permanent nature (I think it doesn’t matter how educated she is or what she do). Find details here

    Its really amazing to see this thread.. the thread is running for last 3 years.. great work man..
    I am an ACCA Member and CFA Level-3 Candidate. I also get Bsc. (Hons.) Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University. In addition, I have more then three years of post-qualification experience. I have scored overall 7.5 in IELTS test last year. I am currently living in Pakistan and want to continue my education.
    Kindly guide me about the admission possibility and procedure and different options available to me for Masters in Economics.
    n guide me since, I am prefer to go to fall 2014 but find that good university admissions are closed and those lesser ranked universities offered fall admission.. there financial application acceptance were closed.. I can afford to finance these lesser ranked universities but not high ranked like NYU, California Uni. etc., so, initially i planned to go there and do some out-of-table jobs and finance the cost and then may apply to good universities.

    1. admin / Post Author

      You can take admission in lower rank universities or community college and after a year or so you can contact a higher rank university and transfer your courses there. In that case your degree will be of higher rank university. Students are only allow to work for 20 hours a week so you can only afford your living with that income, the fee is extra. You will have to see how you will sort it out.

      Thanks

      1. ACCAsaab /

        But, I am much inspired by your article and if there is a chance that I will earn free degree from USA, then its a great option. I have talked to USEFP they told me that Your credentials are strong and you can apply to good universities, but I am uncertain about the how much scholarship amount I will get and how much of the fees I will earn through TA. And what you suggest that whether I will go there in low ranked universities or wait for good/better university with scholarship/TA.

      Dear Hassan. Scholarships are usually available for technical fields like engineering or computer science. You can take admission in a university however you would need to pay the fee and all other expenses. There are options available for low cost graduate programs in Community Colleges however they still aren’t that cheap for people earning in Pak Rs.

      Dear Ramsha, studying in US college is everyone’s wish but, its the fee most people can’t afford. Even the American students take loans to carry out their studies. Pakistan also have good colleges and universities, its better to do your graduation in Pakistan and then look for an opportunity to do Masters. Most international students do it this way.
