An advanced degree can help advance your career, increase salary and make you more marketable to employers – but it can be prohibitively expensive. Many college students leave college with significant debt which takes decades to pay off; therefore, more students are turning towards Europe for top-quality education at more reasonable costs.
Some European countries provide undergraduate and master’s-level tuition free or at a greatly reduced price to their citizens, with non-EU residents having to pay slightly more, yet still far less than in the United States.
Many European universities also provide master’s programs conducted entirely in English, allowing students from the US and elsewhere to enroll without experiencing a language barrier. Our database lists hundreds of such master’s degrees with tuition costs under $3,000 annually for EU/EEA students – as well as several entirely free master’s degrees available!
European universities place more importance on students’ ability to think and apply knowledge rather than simply memorizing facts for exams. Furthermore, students in Europe tend to enjoy more relaxed environments with more opportunities for extracurricular activities.
Study abroad experiences offer valuable lessons on adapting and dealing with unfamiliar situations – skills employers value in the workplace. They will also deepen your appreciation of other cultures, broadening your global perspective.
