The cost of studying abroad by country

Leaders on prices for studying abroad in the UK and the USA. The cost of living in these countries is also quite high. More affordable prices for higher education abroad offering universities in Canada, Singapore and the Netherlands - in the latter two countries the choice of English programs is quite broad, and the majority of the population speaks English, which removes many of the everyday problems.

The most attractive prices for study abroad are offered in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic - however the selection of programs here in English is small. Often, moving to senior courses or higher levels of training, students passed on to the native language of the country, which is extensively taught in the first year of universities.

Prices on the education abroad programme

In any country the most expensive are all laboratory specialty, medicine, music, cinema and a number of art programs, architecture, MBA and DBA. Research program without a large amount of laboratory work will cost a bit more educational and career-oriented, and the cost of studying abroad for technical, mathematical and engineering professions within one University will always be above the Humanities and social.

Prices for study abroad according to educational levels

In accordance with the Bologna process there are three level higher education: first degree or undergraduate, second degree, or graduate and postgraduate studies, often referred to as a doctorate, in Russia it is still different levels, but in most countries of the world is one.

The cost of a bachelor degree at universities abroad

Fees for undergraduate programs are subject to the above-described logic: they are influenced by country, the ranking of the University, study a subject area and the duration of the study. The most expensive in any country will be universities, holding the highest positions in the rankings. However, if the US and the UK the highest positions — top 20 Dutch — 50-100, for example, to the universities of Austria or the Czech Republic a good result would be getting 100 - 200 best universities in the world.

Rates for graduate programs abroad

Previously listed main factors — the country, ranking position of the University and specialization — determine the prices for training in a magistracy abroad.

Unlike the US, master's programs in most countries last for one year, saving on tuition fees and residence and faster to get to work. Leadership at a cost of magistracy abroad is firmly held by the United States, and the second place traditionally belongs to Britain. The average price level — the Netherlands and Canada, and most offer budget training state universities of Germany and the Czech Republic and Spain.

In all countries of the world on the level of the second highest, perhaps, the widest range of scholarship, that gives good chances to reduce the cost of training and higher education abroad.

How to reduce the cost of studying abroad?

There are several ways to reduce the cost of foreign training. These include:

  • scholarships and grants that you can search in your own country, in foreign educational organizations, universities and foundations;
  • paid internships in career-oriented programs;
  • the opportunity to work not more than 20 hours a week, which will partially cover the cost of education abroad.

There are less obvious options - preparatory, integrated and cross-cutting programmes.

Preparatory programs last year, as a rule, are cheaper than a year of undergraduate or graduate studies in the same University. A good way to save on the first summit will be a two-year training community colleges of the United States or Canada, as well as two or three years of study at colleges and polytechnics of Singapore.

The essence of integrated programmes reflects the advertising expression "2 in 1": two bachelor's or master's degree (=two entities) during the same time, two universities, training which runs parallel, two degrees at the output. There are such programmes in most universities in the U.S. and the Netherlands, in a number of universities of Singapore and are sometimes found in Britain.

End-to-end programs allow you to "jump" through the degree — e.g. from bachelor to doctorate, and a master's degree to the learning process. Through training is cheaper than the serial ends faster. These programs offer a majority of American, canadian and Singaporean universities; they can also be found in the UK and sometimes in the Netherlands.

Comprehensive and cross-cutting programs reduce the cost of graduate programs abroad, but it is important to remember that they are significantly richer and more complicated than ordinary and fit in the first place, someone who clearly understands your career vector, ready to draw up a precise plan to achieve the goals and follow it.
