FAQ

Common Questions

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. I certainly 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.

Our 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.
Should I read the book?
We believe you should. It's available for purchase and immediate download under all plans.

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.
