Great Options for Studying Abroad

Relevance: 27%      Posted on: November 23, 2020

This will be our first Thanksgiving with Jenn in several years. Perhaps it was one too many years of dry turkey and runny mashed potatoes at my family’s place in downstate Illinois that soured her on the holiday… I think the real reason she’s spent the last 5 Thanksgivings visiting schools is because it’s such a great week to travel internationally. The international terminals of the airports are empty, since most US travelers are travelling domestically. International air fares are generally reasonable at this time, as well. It’s a better time than summer, since you can get a feel for…

Firsthand: Student Life in Brussels

Relevance: 25%      Posted on: March 4, 2017

As I mentioned in my last blog, Brussels is not my favorite city in Europe. Recently, I spent some time with Jared, and his friends, Sebastian (from Luxembourg) and Lisa (from Atlanta) to find out their opinions on student life in Brussels. They all appreciate the offerings of the urban atmosphere.  Of course, no car is needed and they are able to get anywhere they need to go on foot or by train.  Though Brussels is known as a somewhat ugly city, the Grand Place is truly beautiful.  In some cities, it is hard to find student residences in the…

Internships: One More Advantage of College in Europe

Relevance: 24%      Posted on: December 10, 2016

As many of you know, Beyond the States was formed in response to my concerns about the state of higher education in the US.  Of course, ever rising tuition and the high stress admissions process were my two greatest worries, but I was also troubled by the post-graduation prospects for many grads these days. For recent college graduates under the age of 25 has risen to 9%(compared with 5.5 percent in 2007) and nearly half of college graduates in their twenties are underemployed, meaning the jobs they can get don’t require a bachelor’s degree. I read these facts in There is…

Firsthand Report from Theo in The Hague

Relevance: 24%      Posted on: October 7, 2016

We’ve told you about one of the students we worked with last year in our previous blogs.  Theo impressed me from the start and I have really enjoyed our interactions.  He is attending Leiden University College The Hague, the honors liberal arts program connected to Leiden University in the Netherlands.  I recently checked in with Theo to see how his transition has been going. University colleges in the Netherlands have a required residential component (1-3 years depending on the school).  As I’ve mentioned previously, student housing at Leiden University College is nicer than any apartment I had until I was in my 30's…

Q & A

Relevance: 23%      Posted on: December 11, 2015

You probably have a few questions about how earning your bachelor's degree overseas works. Here are answers to some common questions. I’m not fluent or proficient in any other language. Can I still get my degree in Europe? Yes! We have information on over 7,000 degree programs (master's and bachelor's combined) at more than 750 schools in non-anglophone European countries. These programs are conducted entirely in English. No foreign language is needed for admission and all of the classes and classwork will be in English. That said, you will be living in a country that isn’t English-speaking so you will…

Architecture Masters: What Are the Options in Europe?

Relevance: 22%      Posted on: September 15, 2020

I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts recently, 99% Invisible, and then I realized we've never really focused on one of my favorite subjects, architecture. If you're interested in learning about the options for architecture masters degrees in Europe, you're in the right place! The podcast episode talked about kidney shaped swimming pools, the birth of skateboarding, and concluded with an interesting connection with education in Europe that I won't spoil. I'll also plug another favorite episode from  99% Invisible on La Sagrada Família in Barcelona.  The story of this building combines intrigue, adventure, the Spanish Civil War,…
