Study Abroad

What makes a foreign education so attractive, and what pitfalls await our students in another country? Let's talk about the pros and cons of studying abroad.

The advantages of receiving an education abroad
The quality of education
Each country has its own peculiarities in the education system, but there are basic principles that the best foreign educational institutions adhere to.

Lectures are an important part of the educational process, only if they do not account for 80% of the time. Western education is built on constant practice and dialogue between teacher and student. Individual and group projects, research, seminars, presentations. Students master their specialty through assignments close to real-life conditions, and graduate with relevant professional skills.

You have the right not to go to lectures if you feel you need to. You choose your own additional courses. You set your own schedule and manage your own education. Of course, freedom comes with a serious share of responsibility - all assignments, projects and examinations in foreign schools and universities are very strictly accepted.

Excellent equipment does not only mean the presence of modern technology. It also means different workshops (chemical laboratories, computer labs, photo and film studios, film sets), sports complexes, rich libraries, and sometimes absolutely unique objects - as, for example, a nuclear reactor at the Federal Polytechnic School in Lausanne.

Language practice
Without a good knowledge of the language it is difficult to get into a foreign university at all. However, over the years of study you will definitely get up to the level of a native speaker. Moreover, in some countries you will have the opportunity to learn a second language. For example, in Canada - French, in Denmark - German, in Switzerland - both German and French, and even Italian.

An excellent command of foreign languages, excellent knowledge and the ability to apply them in practice, a foreign degree in itself - all this guarantees an interesting high-paying job. Regardless of whether you stay abroad or return to your home country.

Cons of studying abroad
The price of the question.
Education abroad is known not only for its quality, but also for its high cost. Education, accommodation, entertainment require significant financial expenses. Nevertheless, there are always more budget-friendly options. For example, in Europe it is cheaper to study than in the USA, and in Germany state universities are free. Also, almost all countries have grants and scholarships to help offset tuition costs.
