About Us

StudyUSA Higher Education Consultants Ltd., also known as StudyUSA, was founded in 2014 as a non-profit company registered in Cyprus. It specializes in studies in the United States and is directed by Ms. Anna Argyrou, who has over 30 years of experience in this field.

Our services include providing detailed assistance on the U.S. application process through individual consultations and a variety of advising packages. We also work with some universities where the application process is streamlined and we can locate scholarship opportunities for students. Each year, a total amount of funds between 2 and 3 million dollars in scholarships and financial aid is leveraged from US universities to our group of Cypriot students who work with us through one of the advising packets. Please note that there are no guarantees to getting accepted to a university or receiving a scholarship, however, StudyUSA has an excellent track record.

StudyUSA also gives out information on the tests required for studying in the U.S. and can provide information on teachers for these tests.

In a year of uncertainty, with the outspread of the pandemic, in addition to the fact that I had to complete my service in the military, StudyUSA, and especially Ms. Argyrou actively stood by my side daily and ensured that the applications were made appropriately, resulting in making my dream of studying in the US come true.

Being a Senior here at Gannon University, has not only made me grow as an individual, but also as a future professional. Through Gannon, I had the opportunity to meet several professionals in the field of Law Enforcement, from Secret Service agents to ATF and FBI agents. What I find fascinating about the Criminal Justice program here at Gannon, is that our learning does not come from textbooks, but from our professors’ past experiences in the field, since they are all former law enforcement agents. Even after I graduate, Gannon will always be my home. It provided me with so many opportunities, first being a long-lasting education.
