It is talked of as the land of dream fulfillment, of cutting edge quality, of mega bucks and of life as you want it to be.Whatever you have heard about the U.S., it’s true. And getting an education there is probably the simplest and most reputable way of being a part of the great American dream. And also, US education is eminently affordable, if done the right way. Unlike other parts of the world, where self-funding is the only way to pay for your education, the US education system offers an array of scholarships and loans besides earn-as-you-learn opportunities.

Graduate Programs (MS, MA,MBA etc)
Most schools require qualifications comparable to a U.S. Bachelor’s degree (Four-Year Degree Program) or a minimum of 16 years of formal education. In the Nepali context, this implies qualifying in either a professional four-year course like engineering or other such courses.
Students who apply are also required to take standardized tests like GRE, GMAT, SAT and TOEFL etc. depending on the course or program chosen. The minimum TOEFL score required is usually 550 (Paper-based test) or 220 (Computer-based test) for graduate courses.
