The American university system is unique in the world. A lot of international athletes have gone through it before becoming professionals.
As for tennis, for example :
- John Isner (University of Georgia)
- James Blake (Harvard)
- Steve Johnson (USC)
- Julie Coin (Clemson University)…
This university system allows athletes to adapt their schedule according to their specific sports program and fully integrate the life of the university as they represent it through various university championships. A student athlete can enjoy high quality coaching, sports training programs and access to all required facilities for free.
An average daily schedule includes one or two training sessions, plus specific weight lifting and fitness sessions. And this is all in parallel with an academic degree program.
You are going to become fluent in English, a major asset on today’s job market as foreign languages are now a major requirement to be hired by any big company.
Studying in the United States is an unforgettable and culturally fulfilling experience. It will open up your mind and build your capacity to adapt, while giving you intellectual and physical satisfaction.
