Find and choose a school abroadStart with your goalsWhen you are looking for a schoolabroad, you should start with yourgoals. What is most important foryou? The place of study or the program you want to study? Example:Oscar has always dreamed of living and studying in Paris. He hasnot given much thought on whathe wants to study there; the important thing is to experience life inParis. In his case, we would recommend studying French at a language school. Speaking French is thebest way to get to know the Frenchculture and enjoy life, in Franceand language courses are usuallyless demanding than universitystudies, so he will have plenty oftime to explore the city.Emma is also attracted by Paris, buther main goal is to become a shoedesigner. She should, therefore,start by searching widely for schoolswith an expertise in shoe design andlook at what they cost, what reputation they have, and how hard it isto get accepted. If she is lucky shemay find the perfect school in Paris, but it is quite possible that shewill find a better school somewhereelse. Then she might have to give upon Paris in favor of getting the education she desires.8Where do I find schools abroad?Nowadays it is easiest to findschools online.

It can be difficult to find a job if you don’t studyat a university with a large campus.While working in your country ofstudy can give you more money forliving costs, it can never be taken forgranted. In some places, it is hardto find a job, especially if you don’tspeak the native language well, andto get a student visa you will needto show that you have sufficientfunding at the time of applying.Can I study abroad for free?If you are an EU citizen, you canstudy tuition-free in some countries in northern Europe.
