Did you know that over 1.4 million students from around the world came to Europe in 2012 for their higher education... and the numbers are growing every year. With 1000s of world-class universities, research centres and higher education institutions, Europe is the place to be.
Here are 8 good reasons to choose Europe for your higher education:
Central European University’s MA program in Economic Policy in Global Markets offers both academic excellence and life-skills training. It provides a comprehensive and deep insight into economics, governance, civil society, media and international relations. Another thing I love about the department is how understanding and responsive they are to students’ concerns and differences. Beyond a doubt, CEU is a global village, giving us every opportunity to become better policymakers in the future
Erasmus taught me that the world is my market, that I can perform on the global stage. It gave me a change to understand the policies and plans of the developed world.
I had completed Bachelor and PhD (on Rhododendron plant) in Chemistry from Germany and choose the international Erasmus Mundus program for my Master studies from Spain and Poland. I had opportunities to explore the depths of Chemistry using the latest technology present in the world. The cost of living and study is reasonable here and with Schengen Visa, I had opportunity to visit many of the European countries and cultures. With advance research centers, resources and best faculties, I think I made wise decision to study in Europe.
To me, European universities are different in that they have a high level of development and they provide a contemporary module system of study. I especially appreciate the wide range of offered modules. Many of the modules offered are unique for me, because there is no equivalent at my home university. To describe my overall experience, it is a great opportunity for me to study in Europe. I am sure it will strongly enrich my future studies, my knowledge and help me in my prospective career.
Never give up! That is what I would suggest to students who consider coming to Europe. My European experience of study at the very beginning has been difficult because of the new language. Studying in Italy was hard until I decided to share an apartment with some native speakers. And now, after four years, I am able to understand 95% of what the professors say, I am more self-confident and more and more fond of my studies.
I would describe my overall experience of European study as challenging, yet satisfying. The courses are tougher than I anticipated. The assignments and group projects demand high computer program aptitude and time management skills. Thankfully, the professors, teaching assistants as well as the students are very helpful. During the eight-week study period, there are never-ending deadlines. The tasks in the assignments are typically very open-ended, so you have the possibility to dive deep into each question. Whenever you finish an assignment, you feel more confident towards becoming a “real-world” engineer.
Studying in Europe was always on my mind since my early childhood; then I realised that I had to take action to achieve my goal and today I’m here, studying at a European university and getting lifetime experience. Even though I’ve spent just two months here, if someone asked me to describe it in one word, I would say “great”, “amazing”, “cool”, “best”. After the two months I’ve spent in Europe, I’ve realised that it’s the best place for both professional and personal development, as Michael Stohl says: “Studying abroad is simply the most exciting and rewarding opportunity to learn about yourself, your culture and society, and the world, while experiencing the opportunity of a lifetime in pursuing your communication degree”.
