Pros and cons of studying in prestigious countries abroad

The parents of many modern adolescents are sure that the outdated Russian education system has remained in the distant past, and the realities of the modern higher school are such that it is not necessary to count on getting high-quality and profound knowledge. Therefore, in those families where the financial situation is at the level of "above average", the tendency to choose young people's education began to spreadabroad . We will talk about this today.

1. England

Foggy Albion has always been famous for its centuries-old traditions in the field of education, and training in one of the numerous British universities is still considered a good investment of money and is very prestigious. At the same time, we should not forget that romantic impulses are quickly replaced by everyday life, which for many students is an unpleasant surprise.


  • Highest level of teaching.
  • Good prospects for subsequent employment.
  • Some schools can boast very high ratings, which makes their education prestigious and status.
  • Worldwide recognition of diplomas.
  • Good language practice.
  • A saturated and vibrant student life.


  • Potential difficulties in obtaining and extending a visa.
  • A high probability of "failing" the entrance exams (the big competition).
  • A considerable cost.
  • Very illusory chances to stay in the country after receiving the diploma.

It should be borne in mind that the traditional method of solving these problems (an envelope with the appropriate contents) in Britain does not work most often.

2. United States

Many people confuse the realization of the American dream with teaching in one of the US universities, mistakenly believing that it is one and the same. The choice here is really great, but a potential student should understand that if he really wants to achieve something, then the very fact of studying in Harvard or Yale itself means almost nothing.


  • The broadest range of available curriculum.
  • The prestige and world renown of many universities.
  • Numerous campuses at some major universities.
  • Effective network Student exchange.
  • Multi-national student environment.
  • Friendly attitude to foreign students.
  • Good prospects for employment.


  • Essential restrictions that make it difficult (and sometimes completely impossible) to get a job at the time of training.
  • The cost is quite high, and this applies to both training itself and the numerous "overhead" costs: living, transport, food and personal services.
  • American mentality and different from the domestic education system.
