Why not do the research yourself?

Consider our monthly pricing special at $49/mo, and let's be conservative and say we save you 40 hours of research a month... would you rather spend this time digging through sites in foreign languages? What about all the options you'll miss out on? What about all the FREE programs?

We believe your time is best spent researching the one program you found on Beyond the States. The main potential benefit, though, is that you find an affordable degree that leads to incredible employment opportunities and life-changing experiences.

Frequently Asked Questions

Don't know where to start? Read through these to get a feel for what's to come.

Why should I study in Europe?

Prior to my research, I assumed that an international student would have to know a foreign language to study in Europe and that it would be a very expensive option. Ic ertainly had no idea that, in non-Anglophone countries inEurope, there are more than 850 schools offering more than 11,000 full degree programs conducted entirely in English—no foreign language skills needed. Everything from the courses to the readings to the assignments are in English.

I was also wrong about cost. The average tuition international students pay for these bachelor’s degree programs in Europe is around $7,000 per year. There are almost 400 programs with tuition less than $4,000 per year and 50 options that are tuition-free, even for international students.

Just like in the United States, Europe has its excellent schools, its mediocre schools, and its schools with question-able qualities. For some families, visiting schools overseas is simply not possible. Being able to evaluate a school’s merit, particularly when it is outside your home country, can be difficult. Understanding the benefits to college in Europe, the differences in the systems, and potential obstacles is crucial when considering such lesser-known options.

My goal with Beyond the States® is to make that information accessible to you, while also showing you how to save more than $100,000, opt out of the high-pressure and flawed US admissions game, and give your child a competitive advantage toward future employment. Even if you ultimately end up choosing a school in the United States, knowing these options will help you make an informed decision, as opposed to one made due to lack of alternatives.

Each expands into more specific areas of study, of which there are 212 in our database.

Are all the programs really in English?

Not only are the programs taught entirely in English, but the entire country is well versed in the language as well. You have nothing to worry about when it comes to language. Thankfully, you'll be surrounded by international students that are all on the same boat as you.

How can I get access to the Facebook group?

Your request will be promptly approved and you'll now be a part of the Facebook community. Help is plentiful, with parents and students from all over the country providing instant feedback on your most pressing questions.

Can I cancel my membership and keep access?

Your access and benefits are valid for as long as you are a member. If you cancel renewal, your access and benefits, including access to the Facebook group, are valid up until the expiration date of your membership, which is usually 1 or 12 months after you signed up, depending on your payment plan.

What if I don't find what I'm looking for?

With 3000+ Bachelor's and 8000+ Master's programs, we're sure you'll find the one ideal program for you or your family members, and we're happy to guide your most pressing questions with our Monthly Q&A's.

Do you offer additional guidance?

We have a few ways to get you additional help:

• Monthly Q&As – Submit your questions via our portal and get them answered at the end of the month with a recording that goes over all the questions submitted for the month. These are included as part of your membership.

• Best Fit List™ Service – Get a personalized list of 3-5 schools/programs matched to your unique personality, preferences, interests, skills, qualifications, & budget. Lifetime members get one free Best Fit List™ service for one student.

Do you offer courses?

Yes! Please see our courses page for more information.

Should I read the book?

We believe you should. This book is for anyone who is looking for an English-taught bachelor’s degree program outside of their home country— either for themselves or for their children. This includes not just American high school students, but students anywhere in the world who are curious and excited to learn about other countries and cultures firsthand. Those who are seeking an alternative to the soaring cost of tuition in the United States, or who want a way to opt out of the flawed admissions process will also find this book useful. Students who are concerned about the current political climate in the United States will have the chance to learn about schools that offer the sort of education that allows one to affect real global change. And finally, this book is for all students—whether you’re on the cusp of graduating high school or you’re older, having missed out on attending or completing college the first time around. So long as you are willing to travel and step outside your comfort zone, exploring college options in Europe will show you that exciting and affordable higher education alternatives are within your grasp.

We're offering it for the special price of $15 for everyone or $10 for members.
