PhD Study in the Americas

The appeal of the USA alone makes North America the world's most popular study destination, with thousands of international students attracted to its prestigious graduate schools and PhD training programmes.

But there's more to PhD study in America than the United States. Canada is also a very attractive option, with liberal, multicultural campuses and generous post-study visa options for graduate students. Elsewhere the universities of Brazil and South America are emerging as international research centres in their own right.
