Education in Europe.
If you are interested in quality + affordable prices, when choosing an education, then European universities are what you should pay attention to.
Getting an education in Europe is one of the main pillars of success, stable and well-paid work, and continuous development. The relevance of having a diploma after graduation in Europe is increasing every year. Students are thinking about a more comfortable place of study, the status of the diploma they receive, as well as the opportunity to realize their potential of knowledge that will lead to a \»dream job\».
European education has several advantages, such as:
– the quality of education;
– affordable tuition and accommodation prices;
– availability of free education or scholarships in some countries;
– the ability to move around other Schengen countries while studying as a tourist (up to 90 days);
– the possibility of part-time work up to 20 hours a week in parallel with studies;
– and etc.
It\’s not a secret for anyone that studying in Europe allows you to calmly, and easily move between countries, without waiting for the necessary documents. Another distinguishing feature is a truly international student body. According to statistics, about a quarter of all students are foreigners (while in some business schools more than 80%, which is almost three times the number of foreigners in the largest US business schools). Such \»internationalization\» is also present in the teaching staff, which is a kind of hit because in a few places you can see representatives of thirty countries of the world among mentors.
There are no many training programs.
The privilege of education in Europe is the widest range in the choice of universities and schools, not to mention the specialties, areas, and faculties. This suggests that you will be able to choose a program you like, corresponding to your level of knowledge and responding to your inner potential, satisfying the path that will lead to your goal. For example, Italy ranks first in the world in the number of foreign students in the field of fashion and design. Thousands of graduates become famous fashion designers. Production and storage of alcoholic beverages, and just learning to understand the varieties of wine? Easy. France provides the direction \»management of accredited wine and spirits\». An unexpected surprise awaits Beatles fans – there are programs and specialties \»The Beatles, Popular Music and Society\», as well as \»Liverpool in the Beatles\» and \»Musicology in the Beatles\». As you can see from the examples, there is plenty to choose from.
The dream of becoming a polyglot comes true when getting an education in Europe, as well as independently adding promising lines to your CV since almost all European universities (as well as schools) offer you programs not only in English but also in local languages. According to the statistics of surveys conducted in various spheres of work in Europe, almost fifty percent of employers prefer candidates who speak several languages!
Leading positions in world rankings are firmly held by European universities, which opens the door to a new stage of \»the first-class specialist\».
Studying in Europe = saving time, because studying in most universities for a bachelor\’s degree lasts three to four years and a master\’s degree from ten to fifteen months. A diploma and the start of a career are not long in coming, since the programs are based on intensive training. If in the USA there are days when students do not study at all but spend time exchanging experience, then in European universities this time is given to additional studies.
About the prices.
The average cost of training in Europe is 6 thousand euros per year. At the same time, some countries provide the opportunity for foreign students to study free of charge (Germany, Italy, Norway, etc.), or the cost is very low – about a thousand euros per year.
What about post-study work?
Statistics show that this requires three to four months to find a post-study work, since most students start working during their studies, and this is not only allowed, but also encouraged because fresh specialists are new knowledge and skills, a completely new look, non-standard solutions and a non-trivial approach to questions. However, it is worth remembering that a full-time workday and studying at the university are two incompatible concepts. Students have the right to gain from 10 to 20 working hours per week, which makes it possible to get mainly a junior position and have earnings of two hundred to five hundred euros, which will help to almost completely cover personal expenses.
If a foreign applicant is going to study for free, then it is necessary to know the state language of the country where the university is located, since education on a budget is possible only in the state language.
Preparatory courses have no age restrictions, while most universities accept only from the age of eighteen.
It is not so easy psychologically to plunge into the educational process in another language. Preparatory courses are designed to prepare foreign students morally as well.
