I have two seperate questions and would extremely appreciate your help.
1) As a second year student from the UK, is there any other possibility to experience American universities apart from doing a semester abroad? Unfortunately, a semester abroad would interfere with my degree too much so even though I have been accepted to the programme, I was unable to match the modules I need to take. Are there any other ways to go abroad?
2) I would like to do some further study after finishing my course and I am considering to do it in the US. My budget limit would be about $10-15k for tuition fees (as far as I know it is two years in the US so the limit would be for both). Is it possible to find a good university offering the degree while sticking to that limit and could you please recommend some? Also, what are the usual entry requirements and would I have to take any tests? The degree I would be looking to do would be in the Life Sciences (Genetics, Molecular Biology).
