EUROPEAN UNIVERSITIES ARE GREAT ALTERNATIVE
I wonder how many young people are aware that there is an alternative to expensive UK universities.
All UK citizens are able to study at any university in Europe, hopefully forever.
My two grandchildren had offers from UK universities but decided to study at Vienna universities. My granddaughter studied languages and was on an exchange program to France and Italy. She managed to get a job straight away and will be starting her MBA in the autumn. My grandson is studying engineering and also spent three months at the Istanbul university.
Both my grandchildren are having a fabulous time in Vienna and can’t wait to get their Austrian citizenship and have at present no intention of living again in the UK. They paid 128 Euros per Semester and funded all their studies by working and teaching English, music and skiing. They speak now, of course, perfect German.
One great difference between UK and some Continental universities is that if they cannot pass all the exams in the 1 semester they are out.
They both spent their gap year mostly in a German speaking country and I think that would be advisable.
