Study in Nevada, and find the best universities in Nevada.
Nevada is a state of extremes. Most of it is desert and largely uninhabitable, with the state bordered by the nearby, and snow-capped, Sierra Nevada mountains. It is known as the ‘battle-born’ state as it became a state during the American Civil War.
Sitting in the miles of desert is the legendary city of Las Vegas, the US Mecca for gambling and good times. Las Vegas is a city that does everything on a grand-scale, and is famed for its diversity and tolerance of everything from gambling to gay rights. For people that view these lifestyles as vices Las Vegas is not a good destination.
Nevada is one of the most culturally diverse states in America and an exciting and interesting place to study as an international student.
