UK vs US Universities for Careers in Tech


An Exclusive Crimson Education Webinar
Tuesday 9th March 6:30pm to 8pm (UK time)

Four key reasons for choosing the US
Flexible curriculum


The liberal arts curriculum allows students to take classes in multiple fields of study and they don't need to choose their major until their second year ensuring more decision time.

Graduate salaries

Salaries for US university graduates tend to be much higher than those in the UK. For example, Princeton graduates earn an average of $90,700 (£66,490) whereas the average salary of an Oxford Business graduate is £41,500.

Extracurricular opportunities

US universities have thousands of societies and clubs for students to be a part of and enrich their college experience. Many universities compete in national and international sporting competitions like the Olympics. For example, Stanford has won 270 Olympic medals!

Faculty exposure


Most top US universities have a strong undergraduate focus and therefore students get 1-1 time with their professors that in the UK are reserved for post-graduate students.

Yale

A popular choice for high achieving, well-rounded students due to its strong undergraduate focus and emphasis on the arts

“My essay mentor Alan was amazing. Prior to me actually choosing potential topics and writing them down, Alan had loads of meetings with me online, where we discussed all my extracurriculars, life experience and a never-ending stream of other topics before deciding what my essays should be."
