TOP-10 myths about European education

TOP-10 myths about European education

To date, to get a decent education in European countries is not difficult and huge costs. But before you start packing your bags, we will tell you about ten facts that will tell you for whom education in European universities will be the most rational and winning.

Myth 1: To learn, you need to have a good command of the local language

Of course, you must understand the local language, but for successful learning, this is not so important. Almost all countries have special programs in English, while you may need the local language only when studying at a state university on a budgetary basis. In addition, there are a lot of private educational institutions in which you will definitely not have problems with choosing the specialty that suits you with the English language program.

Myth 2: Europe doesn't like expats

This is the strangest myth, because they do not like those who live in the country illegally, but competent specialists are waiting with open arms. Just for this purpose, a variety of programs are created for training and subsequent residence in European countries. Students are welcome here, and from any country in the world.

Myth 3: After graduation, you will have to stay in Europe for good.

Most of the students who study at European universities just plan to live and work in this country after their studies. Many people use their studies as a way to emigrate to Europe. However, to date, quite a lot of good specialists leave for Europe to receive additional education, and then return to their homeland. Large companies very often pay for such studies and appreciate specialists with a European diploma, knowledge of several languages.

Myth 4: Education in Europe is very expensive

Yes, many European universities are quite expensive, especially in Switzerland or England, but there are alternatives. In many countries, for example, in Germany and the Czech Republic,there is also free education for students from other countries. And if the training is paid, then its cost is very low, and for the year you will give even less than your monthly salary.

There are several countries that are considered really expensive for foreign applicants, but in them you can find a decent educational institution with lower prices for training.

Myth 6: In Europe, you can get education only on a fee basis.

In fact, it is much easier to enter a university on a budgetary basis in Europe. You can enter a university on the basis of only one average score of your certificate and without knowledge of the local language, for example, in Greece. Many European countries give the opportunity to first enter a university, and already in the process of learning to learn the language. But in the universities of France you can enter without passing the entrance exams, but with a confirmed knowledge of the French language.

Myth 7: You can't work during your studies

There is a special student visa with the right to work. If you speak the local language, then preference will most likely be given to you, a student who legally resides in the country. In addition, in many countries it is possible to open your own individual entrepreneur or work while studying at a university.

Myth 8: A student visa is available to young people under the age of 30

In Europe, it is more common to study before the age of 30, but even if you are older, this will not cause any questions. A student visa can be issued to you at the age of 60, the main thing is to correctly draw up all the documents.

Myth 9: to enter a European educational institution, you need to enroll and study at a foreign university for some time.

Countries easily accept students who have passed the I-II course program and passed a rather complex exam. There are not so many of those in which you can enter the university without any problems immediately after mastering the school curriculum.
