I’ve been an international student in the US and Europe. I’ll let you know why you should study abroad in Europe, including what it’s like to study there, how much it costs, and more!
Cheaper Than Studying In The US.
- Tuition costs are much lower than in the US.
- Tuition costs are often much lower than in other parts of the world.
- Tuition costs are often lower than in other parts of Europe.
- Tuition costs are often lower than in other parts of the EU.
There are many scholarships available for EU citizens, as well as non-EU citizens. The European Commission offers scholarships to undergraduates and postgraduates who are citizens of a member state. There is also a scholarship program specifically designed to encourage women to study at universities in Europe.
The same applies for minority students, who may be eligible for financial aid if they meet certain criteria. If you’re an athlete or veteran, you should check out the Erasmus+ Sport project which offers grants of up to €5,000 per year (or €20,000 over an entire Master’s degree program).
More Access To Research Opportunities.
- More access to research opportunities
- More research opportunities
- More access to professors, who are often the ones writing grants or supervising theses. This is especially true in smaller institutions, where there may not be a large enough student body for them to get funding from elsewhere. The same goes for libraries, which tend to be much better funded at large universities than at smaller ones. Some of this is simply due to money—it costs more money for a university library system than it does for your average public library—but some of it is also due to prestige and reputation. If you’re going into academia, you want your work being published in journals that people have heard of: Nature and Science Magazine rather than local newspapers or magazines like “Auntie’s Little Books.” As such, regional institutions will often offer fewer resources than national ones; the latter can afford more because their reputation precedes them (and attracts students).
New Cultures And Languages.
In the European Union, there are 24 official languages. So you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn about different cultures and traditions. Not only will you learn about other languages, but also about religion and customs. In some countries, it’s important for them to speak their national language in public places such as restaurants or shops. This can be a good way for you to practice your skills!
EU Citizens Can Work While In College.
If you are an EU citizen, you may be able to work in the UK while studying. You can apply for a Tier 5 (Child Student) visa if you are between 16 and 18 years old. If you are of any age over 18, you need to apply for a Tier 4 (General) Student visa instead.
You can only work part-time during the school year when on these visas and up to 20 hours per week during holidays. Some employers will pay your student loan directly into your bank account each month if they employ students through their job centres or universities.
Studying In Europe Is Great!
Studying in Europe is great!
Why? Here’s a few reasons:
- It’s cheaper than studying in the US. A lot of European universities are public, so your tuition costs will be low. And if you’re lucky enough to get funded by a scholarship or fellowship, you could end up paying nothing at all! Although living expenses can be higher than they would otherwise be in America, they’ll still probably be lower than what you’d pay back home.
- You have access to more research opportunities and funding sources as an international student. For example, I was able to do my master’s project with one of the world’s leading science labs because I was working under their sponsorship as an exchange student from my university in Canada (which isn’t even that large). Many European universities also have special partnerships with other institutions around the world so students can do internships or study abroad programs at no cost during their degrees – this includes everything from language learning courses through external links like Erasmus+ or International Credit Transfer System (ICTS).
Studying abroad is a great experience, and Europe has so much to offer. You can find scholarships through an exchange program or apply to one of the many universities in Europe that offer exchange programs with American schools. The culture of Europe will give you new perspectives on life while learning new languages will help improve communication skills in any field you want to pursue.
