When you are thinking of getting a Master’s or doctoral degree in America, some of the top questions on your mind would be:
• What are the academic requirements in order to be able to apply?
• What are the costs of getting a degree in the US?
• What are the job prospects?
Here’s a quick look at the answers to those questions.
What is the eligibility for applying for a Master’s course in America?
The basic eligibility requirement is 16 years of formal education (12 + 4), the last 4 from an accredited university. So, students who have bachelor’s degrees in engineering (whether they joined engineering courses directly after the 12th Std. or after a diploma course) can directly apply for American Master’s courses. However, students who have completed a three-year degree (e.g. B.Sc.) should ideally complete their Master’s degrees (e.g. M.Sc.) in India and then apply.
