Hi everyone! My name is Ashley Lin, and I am the Founder & CEO of Project Exchange (www.myproj... ange.com), a youth-led, 501c3 nonprofit increasing access to cross-cultural learning opportunities for middle & high school students across the globe through digital solutions.

Project Exchange is excited to bring together youth from over ten countries to participate in our Fall 2019 Digital Exchange Program (an exchange program, completely online)! Together students will learn about design thinking, community journalism, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals to make a difference. We are still looking for students to participate in our Digital Exchange Program from September 16 - December 8, 2019, which will take place on our online platform. It will take students about 2-3 hours per week.

We know there can be many barriers to studying abroad, and hope you'll take advantage of this opportunity (and share with friends/people you know may be interested). We are accepting rolling applications here (forms.gle/... aB27nc8E6) until September 15.

Please feel free to email me at yuhsuanlin2003@gmail.com with any questions!

Are there any available scholarships for international students studying in the UK?
Link

Hi Shantel - the UK universities provide very little scholarships for international students. There are some but it is difficult to find something that will cover your tuition.
I am a current college student getting my Associates in Civil Engineering Technology in the Caribbean.

What are my options if I wanted to continue my studies in Europe and gain a Bachelors in Engineering?
Link

There are a number of options depending on the languages you speak and price you can pay. There are also a number of English programs across universities in Europe.

I come from an English-speaking country but I did Spanish for three years of high school. I wouldn’t consider myself fluent but I do understand Spanish and can speak basic level Spanish sentences
6 months ago
Spain is an option and generally fees are very low compared to most of other countries. Alternatively, Holland has a number of English programs but the cost will be higher - usually around EUR10,000 per year. Some public and private universities in Germany and Finland now offer programs in English too but not that many. Finally, depending on your financial position you may want to finish Bachelors degree in your home country and try to apply for Masters programs - there are plenty of them in English in Germany, Holland and other countries and it is easier to get grants or scholarships.

Could someone please compare the University College Groningen to Unversity College Maastricht? Please compare UCG's interdisciplinary PROJECT Based Learning curriculum to UCM's promotes their PROBLEM Based curriculum. Please speak to the strengths of UCG and UCM in the areas of International / Cultural Studies? Thank you!

I didn't study there but have come across a number of people from Maastricht. It's a younger university but very well known and many students end up working for tech and other companies. Law department is also considered very good. Groningen is a more established university and has solid track record in science etc. Both offer plenty of opportunities for graduates. Maastricht is more international and also very close to Germany and Belgium.

It is a great place to study and much cheaper than most US or UK colleges while there are lots of English programs

I have visited it and its really a good place to go to university
Can someone explain to me the French college system as compared to the American system? Thanks!

It's usually 3 year programs and much cheaper than US colleges (many public institutions are basically free). Most of the universities require you to speak French (see university websites for requirements) before you apply. There is a difference between grand ecoles and public institutions but both are part of university system and offer similar opportunities after graduation.

It really depends on the university but if you are looking at some top schools like Sciences Po (which also has a number of dual programs) it has English programs as well. For Sciences Po as a non-EU student you would have to pay around EUR10,000 per year. There are lots of options in France and if you speak the language it is definitely an interesting place to go to college while most likely saving a lot of money compared even to US state schools. Application process is relatively simple too.

This is a good summary. Just by talking to people who studied in France and the US the systems are very different. The classes are generally harder in France and require you to do a lot of work independently.
Any Summer study programs that offer full/majority scholarships? I’m kinda broke,

You can try to initiate exchange program in your school as this would one of the way to get government subsidy for a program like this otherwise it would be private programs which are pretty expensive. This one is a German exchange program

Hi Maria - the question is where you want to study and how much you can pay for your studies. SAT is mostly relevant for US colleges and not for European universities (although some would look at it). England is always an option but the cost is relatively high for international students. There are a number of countries on the continent which offer undergraduate programs in English including Holland, Germany and Finland - some of these are private but still much cheaper than US or UK universities but there are public where education is free. See some posts below on this. It also depends on what you want to study.

I want financial aid because I can't afford fees and wanna go to US

In which case you should post in US College Apps Group
If I wanted to study in Europe, what are my options? I can probably get some financial aid in the US but not that much and I understand that is much cheaper to study in Europe while quality is also great.

There are a number of options and it is definitely cheaper that the US unless you qualify for scholarships/financial aid. But it also depends on your language skills. There are a number of programs in English in Finland, Germany, Holland etc but they tend to be more expensive that typical state universities. For example, private universities in Germany charge EUR 5-10,000 per year while state universities are pretty much free but these tend to have only a few English programs.

Do you speak any other languages? From what I understand, it's not easy to study if you don't speak a local language

Derek - we posted this some time ago. England the easiest option but not the cheapest. Holland is another country where many undergrad programs are in English. Germany is a great place to study but most public schools are in German (still there are plenty of options in private colleges).

UK universities are used to US applicants and it is much easier for US students to apply. Holland is another European country where you can get a great education in English at a very low cost.
Look at Bocconi University in Italy if you like economics, management or political science. they have Bachelors in English and it is best value for money. Faculty is great

Does anyone have any experience with Jacobs University in Bremen Germany? They teach in English. My daughter has this at the top of her college list for next year and I’d like to know more.
Link
1 year ago
We have no statistics on how hard it is to get into Jacobs - it is very different from traditional German universities where you have set GPA each year for each major. It should be doable assuming you don't require significant financial aid. In terms of age, most of the German students will slightly older (and probably more mature) than typical American freshman. International students will around the same age. There is less hand holding at German universities (esp public ones) where a student is expected to do most of the work on their own.

In the UK mid-range, check out Royal Holloway, Brunel, University of East Anglia - they will be more expensive that German colleges but definitely cheaper than most of the US private schools.
1 year ago
So what if one needs significant financial aid. Is there a better option?
1 year ago
One can apply for financial aid at a university like Jacobs especially since they cater to US students but we have no idea of how much they could offer - public universities in Germany are funded by the state while Jacobs mainly relies on donations and tuition. Alternatives are finding cheaper schools and learning a language / go for a public university in Germany. And of course you should have some options with your state schools in the US.
I am a 17 years old high school student living in Lebanon. I want to study Mechatronics in Germany, but first, I want to spend two to four weeks in summer in Germany in a center/university where I can learn German and live amongst students with the same age and the same goal. I hope that you will be able to help me find one. Thank you in advance!

I am thinking of doing a preparatory course with an official representative of FH Aachen in Lebanon. It it a good idea ? How about the university ? Does it have a good reputation ?
1 year ago
I went to FH Aachen for one semester before moving to London. Great place to study but it is harder than average UK and US colleges. It has a good reputation in German speaking countries, although RWTH Aachen (kind of like sister university which is more theoretical in nature) is better known.

Yes I will transfer to RWTH eventually.
