Frequently Asked Questions

​Is my scholarship secured once I am approved for the Go Campus programme?

Yes. Go Campus and MyEducation (UK) guarantee you scholarships and at least one will be for 60% of your tuition, room and board. In the unlikely event that a participant does not receive the guaranteed number of scholarships from participating institutions then you will be provided with a full refund. If you have chosen a more narrow field of study then we will communicate the likelihood of receiving the guaranteed number of scholarships before you proceed.

How many universities participate?

The list of universities is constantly being updated. Some universities are removed if they do not meet the standard and new universities are enrolling each year. Currently we work with approximately 50 universities in the USA and some universities across 4 provinces of Canada are also enrolled in the Go Campus scholarship programme. Please note that colleges in the Ivy League do not participate in this programme because they receive a higher number of applications each year than they can accommodate.

When is the start of the semester?

You can join an institution at two points during the year. In August (Fall semester) and January (Spring semester).

Can I transfer my current college courses to university in the USA?

Yes. You can choose to transfer courses from your UK institution to the American institution. However each subject will need to be assessed by the American institution in order to confirm its equivalence to the US system.

How long does my scholarship last?

Your scholarship will be applied for as long as you attend the institution up to a maximum of four years. That could be for one semester or four years. You can choose the length of the period of your studies.

​What type of visa do I need to study in the USA?

Once you have been offered a scholarship from an institution you must have a student visa to travel to the USA. The visa is called F-1. MyEducation (UK) will help you with all the necessary documentation to be delivered to the US Embassy in London. Your chosen education institution will issue you with the required I-20 form for you to attend an interview. The F-1 visa will allow you entry into the USA for the period of study.

Can I work in the USA?

Each education institution has their own rules regarding this issue and students must abide by the rules laid out by their institution and the US Government. Currently international students can work legally up to 20 hours a week. During holiday periods longer work hours can be approved but you will need to seek approval from the US Government for this.

What is the SAT test?

The SAT and SAT subject tests are a tool to assess your academic readiness for college. The grades you achieve in these tests can determine the opportunities and scholarships that will be offered to you. The SAT and SAT subject tests allow colleges to assess all students fairly and measure the skills that you have for higher education. Although the SAT is not required to apply for the program, we do highly recommend that you complete the test.

Where and when can I take the SAT test?

You can sign up for the SATs through www.collegeboard.org and create an account. You will need to build your profile and register as a UK resident. There are test centres across the country but you may need to be flexible to find a location and date that suits you. Not all centres run the tests every time it is given.

It costs around $50 to register for the SAT and there are training tools on the collegeboard website to help you prepare for the test.
