Hello everyone! I'm new in the group and thinking of the Netherlands, but I'm torn between two schools. Does anyone have any experience with Economics programs?

“For many families looking at hundreds of thousands in debt after a four-year education, fortunately, there are better options beyond the United States. When you look at the economics and the cultural benefits of studying in Europe, it’s a no-brainer.

A entire degree at a top-tanking college in Europe will cost only $40,104, and this includes tuition, housing, transportation, and other expenses like mandatory fees. If a student chooses the US and graduates in 4 years (of which less than 50% of students do), then the total cost as an in-state student would be $100,227 and $373,052 at an out of state private university. The difference is staggering – the entire cost at the end of his Bachelor’s in Belgium will be less than the cost for 1 year at Duke and less than 2 years at UNC. Sources: KU Leuven, UNC, Duke

Kelly found Beyond the States to be an indispensable tool for her daughter's college search.

"I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for our daughter.  When she told me she wanted to go to Europe for school, I thought there was no way.  I started doing research and found you and BTS.   From there we signed her up for master classes, scoured the data base and found the greatest community of parents in various stages of education in the EU.  We could not have done this without BTS!"
Kelly Thompson

Naomi loved the community of similar students and parents on the same boat!

"One thing that I found very helpful in this course was getting to communicate with people who were considering the same things I was and getting to listen to them pick your brain during the zoom calls."
Naomi Norris
Bachelor's Student

Beyond the States helped make the process easier for Heidi.

"The options for studying in Europe are amazing, but starting your research can be daunting! Beyond the States was indispensable in providing the information my student needed to understand how the European system works, which programs fit his interests, how to apply, and much more. It was well worth the investment! 💪🏽💪🏽"
Heidi Fong
Bachelor's Student

Megan found her dream school and is  graduating without college debt.

"Beyond the States best fit list helped me find my dream university.  Using the expertise of Beyond the States helped me find a college that meets all my needs and I will graduate debt free. Thank you!"

Jordyn didn't like US colleges and is now going to Prague!

"So thankful we found Beyond the States for our daughter who is going to AAU Prague Fall 2021. This would NOT have been possible without BTS! Going through high school she knew she didn't want a typical US university and deal with the competitive nature of trying to get in. If we never found Beyond the States, I am not sure we would have even known about college abroad for a Bachelor degree in an English speaking program."
Jordyn Bichel

Andrew loved the powerful filters in the database.

"The database is extremely helpful and provides a great navigational toolset to find the right schools and programs I was looking for."
Andrew Gundal
Bachelor's Student

Makena loved the clarity  she got from the courses.

"I found this class extremely helpful because finding information about European schools could be very difficult especially if you don't have a college counsellor to ask like me. I learned a lot about the process of applying and it helped me kind of narrow down what I'm interested in academically. There were pieces of information that I learned from this course that you can't really find on the internet because it's something you learn from experience. Thank you :)"
Makena Behnke
Bachelor's Student

Laura went to the Netherlands!

"The Beyond the States database was helpful in providing at a glance information about schools in the Netherlands. I found Jenn's webinar on the Netherlands very informative and especially appreciate understanding the distinction between applied science schools and research universities. 💰"
Laura Stef-Praun
Bachelor's Student

Ali found the database extremely helpful!

"Beyond the States has been amazing in helping me narrow down my daughter's options and commit to a school in Europe. It brought us further in the process after doing research on our own and provided information about universities that we couldn't find ourselves!"

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.
