WORK-STUDY Programme in USA
The Work-Study programme option is designed to give students practical work experience in curriculum-related employment with local US based corporations and businesses.
Along with the mandatory internship or Curriculum Practical Training (PT) employment, students will also need to spend not less than 15 hours per week studies, depending on the enrolled program.
How it is different?
At most universities where the student cannot start the CPT employment until he / she has been in school for at least one academic year (nine months). Also, most universities do not have a unique program designed specifically for the International applicant.
Our Universities have created a unique program that helps International students be successful in the United States workforce. Students here in our universities can start the CPT employment from the first semester and by the time they graduates from the work-study program they will be the prime candidates for an H-1b visa in USA or a high level job in their home country or any other part of the world.
Gain Practical Skills
The practical training that students receive by working in U.S. based companies gives them skills and experience that cannot be obtained in a normal classroom-only education format, thus giving an advantage in achieving their career and life goals after graduation.
CPT is authorized by the U.S. Homeland Security Department for F-1 international students and is equivalent to the CPT option for U.S. students. F-1 students wishing to participate in an off-campus training program that is “an integral part of an established curriculum” must first obtain work authorization for Curricular Practical Training (CPT). The training, which must be directly related to the student’s major field of study, is defined as ”alternate work-study, internship, cooperative education, or any other type of required internship or practicum, which is offered by sponsoring employers through cooperative agreements with the school” (Title 8, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 214.2 (f)(10).
