The Graduate Study Group (GSG)

To ensure that the best and the brightest potential graduate students in Libya have a chance to attend a U.S. university, we have developed the Graduate Study Group (GSG). The GSG is open to all students in Libya regardless of ethnicity and economic background. Appreciation of diversity is a fundamental value on U.S. campuses and integration starts at home.

The Program

The EducationUSA Graduate Study Prep Group (GSG) is a free intensive group advising program that assists potential graduate students who want to be competitive applicants to U.S. colleges and universities. Students meet for six months and participate in monthly workshops, specialized sessions, and presentations all conducted in English.

The activities help ensure that students are properly advised as they go through the process of preparing themselves both academically and socially for a U.S. college or university and work to determine which schools might be a good fit for them.

The GSG is not a scholarship. Students will be prepared to apply for fellowships and assistantships through the university portals and will be advised on how to do so successfully. Admission to the GSG does not guarantee your admission to US universities. This is only an assistance tool; the full responsibility of admission falls on the student`s choice of the university applied to as well as the student’s profile.
