Work Study

Study for your U.S. Master Degree while Working and Earning U.S. Wages
Gain U.S. Work Experience and Master Degree so you become a strong candidate in the competitive global job market
Study: Work-Study USA, Inc. has created unique work-study opportunities in the USA for overseas students who want to earn a master degree from an accredited, high quality university, while working in full-time, paid job internships.
Work: In this unique work-study program (also known as a co-op or internship program) students can work in full time, paid, practical training employment for the whole duration of the master program in order to enhance the educational experience.
Earn: In the work-study program, students can earn US wages to use to pay for educational expenses
The Work-Study Program is designed to give students practical work experience in curriculum-related employment with local US based corporations and businesses. In the work-study program, paid internship employment is mandatory, beginning in the first semester of the first academic year of the student's master degree program. Along with the mandatory internship employment, students will need to take a total of 15 to 18 master degree courses, depending on the enrolled program. The work study programs have the curriculum set up so that the internships jobs are mandatory and therefore a student must begin his/her curricular training immediately upon registration and securing his/her social security number.In Work-Study Programs students can begin working in their first semester of study. This is very different than CPT programs at most universities where the applicant can not 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. Work Study Program, in alliance with the schools, has created a unique program that helps International candidates be successful in the United States workforce. The international candidate will learn about resume building, interviewing etiquette, and U.S. customs. By the time the candidate graduates from the work-study program he/she will be a prime candidate for an H-1b or a high level job in his/her home country.
