University college Europe gives students a chance to go beyond the traditional college experience by studying abroad while experiencing new cultures. Not only can students acquire in-demand language skills such as Japanese or Mandarin Chinese, they’ll also gain global perspectives that employers highly prize. Graduates typically become well-rounded professionals with strong leadership capabilities whose abilities can be applied across many environments. Employers value such soft skills.
Most university colleges in Europe provide both undergraduate and graduate programs for their students. Undergraduate courses typically last three to four years and lead to a bachelor’s degree in areas such as humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and business. Some universities in Europe also offer doctoral programs which take three to five years to complete and culminate in either a PhD or other research-based degrees; additionally university colleges often offer professional programs which prepare graduates for careers such as law, medicine, dentistry and veterinary science.
As opposed to US schools where applicants typically need to apply for the entire institution when applying, as well as identify a major when making their application, most European schools allow students to apply directly for programs of their interest before making any commitments. Furthermore, unlike US schools where admission criteria may include specific SAT/ACT scores, GPA requirements or even certain AP courses (among others), most european schools don’t set minimum admission requirements at all – providing greater certainty for prospective students before making any decisions about enrollment.
