Top Three Reasons Students Are Going to Europe for Graduate School

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: July 13, 2019

Did you know that there are thousands of graduate school programs in Europe that cost a lot less than US grad school tuition? In 2015, I stumbled on the existence of English-taught full degree programs held at European universities. My kids were teenagers and I had a number of concerns about higher education in the US-from ever increasing cost to opaque admissions process to varying quality- so I decided to explore whether to keep this possibility on our radar. Prior to this, I assumed that an international student would have to know a foreign language to study in Europe. I…

12 Reasons to Go To Europe for Graduate School Have you ever thought of changing career directions or would you like to level up on your current career path? If so, you've probably considered getting a graduate degree. For those with a bachelor's degree, the traditional route is to move back into your parents' musty basement, subsisting only on cheap ramen noodles and put yourself into a bottomless pit of student debt that will insure you're never able to retire, buy a house, or gain even a smidgen of financial security, but there is another route to consider: go to…

Your High School May Not Want You to Know About College in Europe

Relevance: 81%      Posted on: September 10, 2016

Two years ago, we had no idea that college in Europe was a possibility for our kids.  This knowledge has absolutely changed our lives (outside from the creation of Beyond the States).  I no longer worry about how we will pay for college; Sam, age 15, is able to limit the number of AP courses he takes and focus on areas of interest for him; and I’m really excited about the prospects.  One of the reasons we started Beyond the States was to let other parents and students know about these options. Even if you don’t end up going the European route, it’s…

In 2015, I stumbled on the existence of English-taught full degree programs held at European universities. My kids were teenagers and I had a number of concerns about higher education in the US-from ever increasing cost to opaque admissions process to varying quality- so I decided to explore whether to keep this possibility on our radar. Prior to this, I assumed that an international student would have to know a foreign language to study in Europe. I certainly had no idea that, in non-Anglophone countries in Europe, there are over 700 accredited universities offering almost 8,000 full bachelor’s and master’s degree…

Did you pass up study abroad opportunities during undergrad or did you study abroad and are eager to go overseas again? If this is you, I have great news: getting a graduate degree overseas is a great way to improve your career prospects while seeing the world. More and more, US graduates are supplementing their college education with a master's degree. Why? "Many entry level jobs today now require a master's and virtually all senior management and senior professional positions require a master's," says Brian D. Kelley, chief information officer at Portage County Information Technology Services. Also, having a master's…

Is a Degree from Europe “Good” in the US?

Relevance: 75%      Posted on: January 19, 2021

I often get questions about whether a degree from Europe will be “good” in the US.. Degree accreditation and recognition can be confusing, so today I’d like to dive into this a bit. Let’s start with accreditation. Accreditation is basically a stamp of approval by an accrediting agency that deems that university programs have met certain standards set out by whoever the accreditor is.

In most countries, other than the US, accreditation is granted by a governmental body which is…
