There is no secret that nowadays American higher education seems to be the best in the world, as it is leading the world universities rankings and demonstrates advanced research technologies. Moreover, a lot of international students are attracted by the prospect of getting official employment right after their graduation, because US law allows it. At the current moment, the market of students in the US is the fastest growing in the world, while the number of Russian students is considerably lower than it could have been.

The main aim of Shorelight Education is to make the process of that universities entrance for international students easier. Thus with the help of Shorelight Education Service the applicant would be required only a copy of the certificate / diploma, of the passport and the test results of English language proficiency. In addition, the company will assist any student in receiving a scholarship, which can cover 50-80% of training costs.
