How The University System Works
Sport: College sports maintain a very high standard across the various athletic divisions (NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA) the facilities on offer can be compared to that of a professional standard here in the UK. This is because college sports are invested in heavily by the universities and the competition is taken very seriously.
Education: Finding the right university for you does not just mean finding the right team to play for, it also means finding the right degree for you. There are hundreds of degrees on offer in the 4500+ institutions the US has nationwide. The majority of degrees take four years to complete, so this gives you four years of high level sporting competition also.
Social: The US college life really is a once in a lifetime experience, the people you meet and the places your sport will take you are incomparable. You’ll get to dive straight into the college lifestyle by attending American football games that can draw crowds of over 100000 people. You’ll get stuck into the ‘tailgating’ they do before the games. There is so much to see and so much to do across the country, and you can do this by using your sport to get you there.
