Study in the U.S.
The American Embassy offers advising services to those who intend on studying in accredited American universities. The advising service is free to all and offers advice beginning at the college search process until the time of departure for America. Education advising is conducted at the American Center located within the COMESA building just opposite the Kafue Roundabout, Ben Bella Road, in Lusaka. In Kitwe, education advising is offered at the American Corner, located in the Mindolo Ecumenical Foundation’s Dag Hammarskjöld Memorial Library. The centers are nonpartisan and provide accurate, unbiased information about all accredited U.S. higher education institutions. The centers also provide information and registration bulletins for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SAT), the ACT, and the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE).
Monthly informational sessions are conducted every third Thursday at the American Center from 15:00 to 16:00 hours and cover the basics for applying to American universities for a bachelor's degree (1st degree). During these sessions, the U.S. system of higher education is explained and information is presented on how to choose a university and apply for acceptance and financial aid. Only after attending a Thursday informational session, may you meet with the education advisor on an individual basis. Those who have already received a bachelor's degree and are now seeking a master's or doctorate should attend a Thursday informational session, and may also meet with the Education Advisor individually during advising hours.
Tuesday 9:00 – 10:00
Wednesday 9:00 – 10:00
Thursday 9:00 – 10:00
