Study in North America
If you think North America consists of Canada and the USA, you are far wrong - a total of 23 states unite North America in one continent. Besides the northern member states such as Greenland, Mexico and a number of island states such as Cuba belong to North America. Surrounded by the Atlantic as well as the Pacific Ocean, studying in North America offers a wealth of scenic attractions. The variety of mountains, national parks and forest areas provide enthusiasm for athletes, nature lovers or photographers and leave nothing to be desired for your study abroad. Also, the flora and fauna enchants its visitors again and again. The culture of North America is characterized above all by the largely immigrant population. Hardly any other continent unites so many different cultures and ensures a diverse society with many new perspectives. The effects of this are clearly evident in the hospitality of the locals, the diverse range of food on offer and the unique cultural components.
