GERMANY

Germany for decades has been a front-runner in many of the world’s greatest achievements in the spheres of art and science; hence the role of Germany in every academic discipline has a long and outstanding tradition of success stories at home and internationally.  In fact there are numerous benefits to studying in Germany but we will highlights seven (7) important benefits of studying in Germany. Let’s go through the perks studying in Germany has to offer to international students

  1. Tuition free education at all public universities in Germany

 The government funds higher education in Germany and as such is it free of charge literally for both locals and international students alike. The higher education system in Germany consists of about 400 institutions, which is divided into public ‘tuition free’ institutions which accounts for 2.4 million students across Germany, and a small number of private institutions that enroll less than 5% of the total student population.

Germany in the past decades has been struggling politically to abolish tuition fees across the whole country; due to its decentralized form of government, it had been a chore to get all its 16 federations to come to a consensus. Finally, in October 2014, an agreement was reached and Germany as a whole now offers free access to higher education to all students irrespective of their nationality.

  1. World-class staff members and Ultra-modern infrastructure

Three different types of institutions make up the higher education system in Germany. They are: Universities, Universities of applied sciences, Technical, art, film and music colleges

Many public universities in Germany are very old, dating back to the Middle Ages. This bars a significant tradition of qualitative education and famous names in various academic disciplines.

 

Universities in Germany are known to excel in both infrastructure and curricula. Optimal facilities providing contemporary technology, and a diversified professional staff that contributes to compounding an enlightening curricula, ensure promising future generations of experts regardless of the discipline. Innovation, international cooperation and practice-oriented studies are considered to be the revolutionary roads to a world-class education.

  1. Globally recognized degrees

Universities in Germany now all operate under the Bologna reform, which ensures all students get a unified and internationally recognized degree such as bachelor’s, masters or PhD.

  • BA/B.Sc equals 6 semesters of study
  • MA/M.Sc equals to 2-4 semesters, depending on the program
  • PhD equals 4-6 semesters, depending on the program

This applies to most academic disciplines, except for medicine, law and pharmacy. In these subjects students are still educated in the traditional way; a state exam is conducted at the end of studies, and the course lasts a few more semesters than an ordinary bachelor’s degree.

  1. Numerous courses taught in English

Studying in Germany not only comes for free, but you can also do it in English if your German language skills are not so good. English is an international and widely spoken language, taught as a second language in the majority of schools around the world. A fresh start in a new country, a new university AND a new language can be tougher than you think; therefore you might want to go easy on yourself and take up an international program taught in English while your German language skills advance, and then perhaps switch to studying in Germany

  1. Great job opportunities

Although universities in Germany do not charge tuition fees, studying in Germany is not totally free – there are some costs you will incur during your studies such as living costs. It is very easy for EU students to find a job, as there are no limitations whatsoever. Meanwhile students from non-EU countries have to apply for a work permit, and their working hours are limited to 190 full days or 240 half days per year.

It’s worth mentioning that practice-oriented universities in Germany have agreements with great companies, providing students with internships. These may not always be paid, but could lead to a great future job after obtaining your degree.

 

  1. An opportunity to explore all facets of life in Germany

Student life in Germany thrives on adrenaline and curiosity. German people are friendly but give you privacy; mutual respect and order are part of the daily routine; and cultural diversity is worth exploring in every inch of the country, as it makes you feel part of one entity rather than a total stranger.

Another true advantage to life in Germany is the excellent public transport, which is efficient, safe and fast. As an additional perk of studying in Germany, you get a travel card for free by paying enrollment and administrative taxes that are ridiculously low.  

 

  1. Remaining in Germany after completing your studies

Finally, after completing your study in Germany, you’ll have the opportunity to stay on and seek work after you graduate. The law allows international graduates to stay for an additional 18 months to seek work, and you may even end up staying longer, if that is what you wish.

 

 

NETHERLAND

  1. An international and multicultural environment international students

Some may ask “Why study in the Netherlands?” But with boat trips on canals and lakes, lazing on beaches, enjoying the view of the woods, a moderate climate and the crossroads where the German, British, French, Chinese and many other cultures meet, others would say “Why not?”

International students from all over the world come to study in the Netherlands. In 2014/15, international students came from a total of 157 different countries, mostly from Germany, China, Belgium, Italy and Spain. Most Dutch universities have international student associations, which help students throughout their studies. 

The Netherlands is also a unique non-Anglophone country, where approximately 95% of locals speak English. This factor makes living, studying, and working in the Netherlands very convenient, comfortable and pleasant for international students. The Netherlands is also very open and tolerant, welcoming everyone to share their opinions and express themselves. This is very much encouraged during your studies.

  1. Affordable study costs Affordable study costs

Studying in the Netherlands is not that expensive, compared with other English-speaking countries such as the UK or US. Dutch higher education is subsidized by the government and tuition fees are relatively low. With the country’s renowned standard of education and comparatively low cost of living, studying in the Netherlands will give you true value for money. Annual tuition fees for a degree program or course at a Dutch higher education institution start at approximately €1,900 for EU students and €6,000 for non-EU students, depending on the institution.

Further, if you decide to have a job alongside your studies, you can also declare these expenses, and get some money back from taxes. How cool is that? In addition, many Dutch universities offer grants and scholarships that can reduce or fully cover the tuition fees of study programs.

  1. Innovative teaching methods Innovative teaching methods

The Dutch educational system is of high quality and Dutch universities are acknowledged worldwide for their well-designed, modern courses and facilities. The teaching style focuses on teamwork, which makes it easy for international students in the Netherlands to meet Dutch people as well as other international students.

Dutch universities place a strong emphasis on good personal relations between professors and students. Most tutorials and seminars take place in small groups of around 15-30 students. Most of your coursework will consist of group work, developing not only your academic skills but also your ability to work together as part of a team. Dutch universities include many practical elements in their degree courses. There is a high emphasis on relevant practical experiences, and universities have a lot of partnerships with Dutch companies, as well as international ones.

As well as general universities, there are also universities of applied sciences, which provide more specialized studies. For those who prefer to gain insights into practical issues, a university of applied sciences might be more attractive. These focus more on practical experiences and less on theoretical and research matters.

  1. Affordable living expenses Affordable living costs

Compared with other western European locations, the cost of living in the Netherlands is relatively low. From my own experience and from my friends’, you will need between €800 and €1,000 per month. To fund this, you can combine part-time jobs and study finance. If you are a EU student, you can work 32 hours a month and be eligible for a €265 grant and a student OV-Chipkaart for free public transportation either during the week or weekends.

There are many useful websites for students to find student accommodation. I would advise you to start looking for accommodation early, because there is a huge demand. From my experience, if starting studies in September, the best months to start looking for accommodation are May, June and July. Definitely don’t wait until August, as you will end up either finding expensive or low quality rooms.

As a student, you can also get discounts in many bars, restaurants, museums and cinemas. You can get around town easily on a bicycle. This is not only typically Dutch, but also a cheap means of transportation. You should definitely ask for an ISIC Student Card to get many more benefits and discounts.

  1. A wide range of degrees taught in English English language courses

The Netherlands is known as the first non-English speaking country in which universities started to design higher education study programs in English, to attract students coming from abroad. More than 2,100 English-taught study programs and courses are available in the Netherlands, covering a broad range of fields, and leading to a bachelor’s, master’s, PhD, diploma or certificate.

It certainly does sound great: high-quality, affordable education offered in many disciplines, in an international, open-minded country. However, Dutch universities do have strict language requirements if you come from a country where English is not the native language. As an international student you are required to take the TOEFL, IELTS or a similar English language test. You should check the university where you are planning to apply, for more details about their requirements.

As I mentioned, the Netherlands is a very international country and very convenient as most people speak English. Nevertheless, I think it’s always valuable to take an introductory Dutch language course to at least pick up the basics, and many universities in the Netherlands offer Dutch languages courses for internationals. You can also use other online resources to find language courses, as well as new cool language apps and dictionaries to ease your stay in the Netherlands.  

  1. Excellent opportunities for travel Canals in Amsterdam

The Netherlands is centrally located in Europe and is in easy reach of all major European cities. The Netherlands is often described as the “gateway to Europe”. It takes only about an hour to fly from Amsterdam to Paris, Berlin, Brussels, or London. It also has great connections and accessibility by train to all major European cities.

 

The Netherlands also has a well-developed and connected transportation system, and various discounts for students make travelling quite affordable. As mentioned, when working 32 hours a month, you can also get a student OV-Chipkaart, which gives you access to free public transportation. This makes it very convenient and cheap to explore the whole country. Further, you will love how easy it is to get around with a bike – the preferred means of transportation of the Dutch, and also the cheapest. You can cycle in peace, confidence and tranquility, as there are dedicated roads for cyclists.

  1. Internationally recognized degrees International degree

The Netherlands has also been recognized as a knowledge center with rich study traditions and well-known universities. Scientific research at Dutch universities is very highly valued at both the national and international level. Education in the Netherlands meets all international standards and is well-reputed worldwide. A diploma from a Dutch university provides an opportunity to start one’s own business and can be very useful in terms of having a successful career in any country of the world.

The most recognized universities in the Netherlands include the University of Amsterdam, Leiden University and Utrecht University. Personally I also recommend Maastricht University (where I am studying for my master’s degree); it is also highly accredited and has a very effective teaching method called project-based learning. This makes you study actively, participate, work in teams and focus on real-life problems.

 

 

SWEDEN

You’ve probably lusted over Sweden’s progressive politics and much-envied welfare system. Or perhaps you’ve gotten itchy feet hearting pics of its beaches and mountains on your Insta-feed. But did you know that Sweden is also home to some of the world’s most prestigious universities? In case you hadn’t already considered studying in Sweden, well, here are seven great reasons you should…

  1. Banish rote learning forever.

If you’re 100% allergic to rote learning, you may be interested to learn that Sweden – home of the GPS, Nobel Prize and Daim chocolate – is partial to a bit of disruptive pedagogy… In a concerted effort to train the planet’s future problem solvers and world leaders, Swedish schools and universities encourage students to think creatively about pressing issues, in informal non-hierarchical classrooms with a strong emphasis on holistic thinking and sustainability.

If you’re concerned about how this approach translates into global reputation, the answer is pretty well. Sweden comes 14th in the QS Higher Education System Strength Rankings, and eight Swedish universities feature among the global top 300 in the latest QS World University Rankings®.        

  1. Protect the environment and defend sustainability.

The most sustainable country in the world with the highest percentage of renewable energy in the EU, Sweden is a great study abroad destination for students interested in sustainable energy and environmental conservation. Sustainability is at the heart of Swedish customs and values – a fact that accords well with its stunning natural landscapes – including mountains, beaches, nature reserves and parks.

  1. Attend a terrific university, with a scholarship.

In order to attract and support talented students from around the world, the Swedish Institute, as well as a number of other top Swedish universities, offers scholarships to international students on the basis of nationality, merit and economic background.

  1. Be yourself!

The stats don’t lie. The Swedes are a young, multi-cultural urban lot. Of the country’s 9.9 million, 85% live in large cosmopolitan cities (mostly Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmo, Uppsala and Lund), and about two million are under 18!

The most equal country in the world according to Business Insider, and known for being ahead of the curve on LGBTQ rights, Sweden is famous for its commitment to diversity. Almost 15% of the Swedish population are first-generation immigrants, while one in five Swedish children has relatives from another country.

What does this mean for you? If you study in Sweden, you’ll benefit from an inclusive multicultural environment and the sense of being liked just as you are, Bridget.

  1. Learn Swedish. Watch Bergman films without subtitles. Brag about it.

While you may not be required to speak fluent Swedish in order to live or study in Sweden, you may want to take advantage of the opportunity to pick up a new language and increase your employability. 

While most people will struggle for a fair while before being able to watch Scenes from a Marriage without subtitles, studying in Sweden could certainly help… Many Swedish universities in fact offer international students a chance to pursue part-time Swedish language courses during their studies, but you could start learning even earlier either online or by signing up on a summer course. Find out more here.

  1. Find a job after you graduate.

A number of multinational firms are based in Sweden, and there are plenty of opportunities for ambitious grads – especially if you’re interested in becoming an engineer, software developer, architect, or any of these high-demand jobs listed by the Swedish Migration Agency (this document is in Swedish – use Google Translate if you’re not fluent yet!).

IKEA, Spotify, Ericsson are all, unsurprisingly, Swedish. Innovation continues to be a Swedish specialty, as reflected in rankings such as the Global Innovation Index. Government investment in technology, climate change research and medicine and biotechnology has stimulated growth, research output and job opportunities.

  1. Experience the much-discussed (and praised) Swedish Model.

Sweden’s welfare system is incredible. Benefits of working in Sweden include free healthcare, sick leave, childcare and education, state subsidies in a variety of areas to make life inexpensive and pleasant, as well as 18 months of paid parental leave per child. You’ll also find that workers in Sweden are incredibly well-represented and protected through strong union support and the Swedish Work Environment Authority.

 

 

CYPRUS

Country in the Middle East

Description

Cyprus, officially the Republic of Cyprus, is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean and the third-largest and third-most populous island in the Mediterranean, located south of Turkey, west of Syria and Lebanon, north of Israel, the Gaza Strip and Egypt, and southeast of Greece. Capital: Nicosia, Currency: Euro, Driving side: left, Continent: Europe, Minority languages: Armenian; Cypriot Arabic; Russian

Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, after Italian islands of Sicily and Sardinia (both in terms of area and population). It is strategically located at the intersection of three continents; Europe, Middle East and Africa. Cyprus was colonized by the British, and they got their independence on the 1st of October 1960.

In the year 1974 Cyprus got divided into two separate states namely – TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) and The Republic of Cyprus (south). The boundary separating the two sides is known as the “Green Line” it runs through Nicosia the capital of both North and South Cyprus. Cyprus is a major tourist destination in the Mediterranean; they joined the European Union on 1 May 2004 and the Euro-zone On 1 January 2008.

Compared to more popular Study Abroad Destinations around the world, Cyprus has a lower number of international students, this makes study much more interaction between students and the instructor. With international students from over 25 countries including India, Nigeria, Russia, china and many others, students are guaranteed to have a very multi-cultural experience.

The official Languages in Cyprus are Greek and Turkish. International students should note that, because Cyprus was a British Colony, most of the population is multilingual and English is commonly spoken as a second language. The University of Nicosia as well as other Universities in Cyprus use English as the official language of instruction and administration. Foreign or International students can easily navigate the university, the community, and travel throughout Cyprus.

Universities in Cyprus offer affordable tuition fees for as low as 2400-2800 EUR per session, they also offers moderate living expenses for international students for as low as 250-400 EUR per month. Dorm-style housing or hostels are available for students who wish to study abroad in Cyprus. Rooms are designed to accommodate one, two, or four students.

There are several advantages of studying in Cyprus, as it provides an ideal structure and environment for higher learning and has become a major international education center, attracting students from all over the countries.

Cyprus has the warmest climate and warmest winters in the Mediterranean part of the European Union. The average annual temperature on the coast is around 24 °C during the day and 14 °C at night. Generally, summer’s/holiday season lasts about 8 months, begins in April with average temperatures of 21–23 °C during the day and 11–13 °C at night, ends in November.

Study Abroad students can see the many archaeological sites scattered around the island, dating from the New Stone Age through to the Roman Empire. The capital of Cyprus, Nicosia, has wonderful bars and restaurants within the old walls of the city. A close look at the total land mass of Cyprus (3,572 sq mi) compared to Lagos state (1,381 sq mi) or Oyo state (10,986 sq mi) will show you just how small the country is. Also remember that the country is divided in to two parts, which means one part is the size of Lagos. With this in mind you are sure to experience more of one country than you could anywhere else, you will become very familiar with your surroundings and get to know the locals quickly. It is home to several amazing beaches, and there is something magical about that Mediterranean water. Ocean swimming, jet-skiing, banana boating, cliff diving – there are lots of ways to play in the sea. After a semester in Cyprus, it will really start to feel like home away from home.

The cost of living in Cyprus is incredibly reasonable, and once you start getting to know the locals you will barely pay a dime to have a good time in Cyprus. Cyprus is blessed with natural beauty and has one of the healthiest environments in the world, free from any kind of pollution; crime rate in Cyprus is next to nowt. Cyprus is a beautiful island to study abroad in, and offers beautiful beaches, mountain scenery, and cultural depth to any student eager to explore what it has to offer. Some call Cyprus the island of love.
