Firsthand Report from Theo in The Hague

Relevance: 100%      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…

Today I have an update on Jared (first blog, second blog) the student from Chapel Hill we worked with who is now attending KU Leuven in Brussels, Belgium. Jared’s family had a crazy summer before he left for school.  In addition to getting Jared ready for college in Europe, they were also in the process of relocating from Chapel Hill to Wilmington, NC.  Jared’s mom was starting a new job so Jared’s dad, Dave, went with Jared to settle him in.  Now I have to…

Podcast: Affordable Tuition

Relevance: 32%      Posted on: August 28, 2016

This episode of the Beyond the States podcast focuses on tuition cost. Jenn presents information on the astronomical tuition in the US and related problems. She then demonstrates how tuition for the English-taught bachelor’s and master’s degree options in Europe allow an international student to pay less for her entire degree program-including travel costs- than one year of tuition alone at many schools in the US. Peter Kumble, an American professor at Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague, Czech Republic joins the discussion. They explore how it is possible for international student tuition to be so reasonably priced and…
