Is the Cost of a graduate Degree Too High for You?
We all know that a graduate college education gets more and more expensive every year. The average student has to try and make ends meet while they struggle toward their goal and the only guarantee is that most will end up with significant loan debt. The primary culprit is that higher education in the United States behaves like more like corporate america – focused on increasing their profits instead of providing you with an education you can afford.
So What Can You Do About It?
First an foremost – widen your options! Most of us look for colleges or universities within the United States out of a force of habit or under the presumption that an education abroad would be too expensive. Not so! Germany in particular has always been known for centers of learning with very low tuition requirements. Another popular misconception is that study abroad would require an applicant to learn and study in a foreign language which is equally not the case. Germany universities are increasing the number of degree programs that are being taught entirely in English and only charge pennies when compared to U.S. colleges.
What Are the Real Challenges?
There are still some hurdles for you to navigate such as administrative fees, travel expenses, the housing search, and the usual cultural differences. That being said, German universities often have tuition and fees totaling less than $1000 per year, have cafeterias which provide great deals for lower income students, have books which are much less exspensive, and you can even work a part time job!
How We Can Help
We have more than 20 years of experience living and working in Europe and can provide information on over 200+ Master’s programs which is only a fraction of what is available. We don’t accept money from the colleges we review. This is about more than just saving money, it is a chance to live and study in another country and to enjoy all of the benefits which come from being a part of a different culture – and often times for much less than similar study in the U.S.
