Why Study in Europe?


The universities in Europe have been known for their educational examples, their serious research, and their value for the skills. Around 31 of the world’s top 100 universities are listed in the Times (2012). This makes Europe a little less than the USA, but an entirely compatible place to live in or to go for a study.

On the different side, there are around 4000 Higher Education Institutions in Europe offering a wide range of courses at Bachelor, Masters, and Doctorate level. The institutions in Europe introducing English as the language of instruction for at least some of their degree programs, universities in Europe are now better placed than ever before to offer a warm welcome to international students and to deliver a course of study that meets their career needs in currently forming global markets. This is expressly noticeable at the graduate level: the number of English-taught Masters in mainland Europe has increased massively from just over 1000 in 2007 to over 5000 today. Degree courses taught in English are available in a huge array of obedience from Business and Economics (currently the most popular, representing about 28% of

English-taught Masters in Europe) to Engineering, Life Sciences (including medicine), Social Sciences and Humanities subjects.

    The Bologna Declaration of 1999 has led to higher education systems throughout Europe becoming aligned to a 3-cycle system of Higher Education as follows:
  • Bachelor Degree (3-4 years)
  • Masters Degree (1-2 years)
  • Doctorate Degree (3 years)

As part of this process, the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) has been introduced which permits students attending a European Higher Education Institution to transfer to another university within Europe or indeed further afield and to easily transfer their credits. The ECTS helps students to convey between universities during one cycle (normally just at bachelor degree level) or to carry upon fulfillment of one cycle to another university for further studies (for example, to switch from one university after completing a Bachelor degree to another university for a Masters program).

Universities in Europe have long welcomed students from other countries. With its unique combination of a modern and high-quality way of life allied to its rich historical heritage, Europe offers a study experience like no other.
