Hello guys, welcome to my channel Today I have a guest and you already know him because we made a video about writing a motivation letter And if you haven’t seen it the link will be below Hi Walker Hello Walker is from the United States and he’s currently living in Russia and he’s helping students from all over the world to get into their dream university And today we’re going to talk not about American Universities I know a lot of people want to go to an American University It was also my dream to go there But there are a lot of opportunities in Europe in Asia to study in English to save money because for example Master’s degree in an American University will cost you around 60 k I studied in Germany I paid 73 euros for semester Compare 60 k and 73 euros For 73 euros I also got this pass which allowed to travel around Dresden where I studied. So there are a lot of opportunities to study in English in different countries and form your network there Today we’re going to talk about those universities Walker Right, so Marina talked about some of the pluses it can be a lot cheaper to study in Europe it’s free, of course you’ve got you’ve got to deal with living expenses what it’s going to cost and go back and forth but it’s cheaper Another plus is location You live close to Europe It might be more convenient Europe is a beautiful continent with lots of great places to study lots of good historical places for universities It also can be accessible It’s difficult to get a visa more difficult to get a student visa to go to the USA and especially Great Britain. It can be easier to get in to to study as a student Another important point is that if your interests lye in Europe or Asia you always form long term links and always set your roots down at these places and if it what you’re interested in going you want to just go there and study even if you don’t have a language you can study in English and pick up a language on the way There are two main centres where English is studied in Europe And in Asia, especially South-East Asia and China Chinese programs are going really fast Also because they have large English-speaking population Singapore and Malasia Australia has been… it’s an English-speaking country Australia is the biggest exporter of its educational system for a long time Others are also important especially as Asia and Asian economy grows Asian government are also heavily investing and try to improve their education Lots of places, lots of support building Universities where education is just in English I tried to break it down a little bit came out with famous Universities Ones that are affiliates to other Universities Ones that are fagious The famous ones are the ones that are long established that are mostly for local people so Universities bulit for the local population If you’re from those countries these are great places to study English language meduims but they are more for the local people They were designed for that Affiliants are the majority of the new programs They are where Universities like American University British University set up an affiliate creating the relationship with local University and they’ve built a campus Sometimes it’s a full separate campus Sometimes it’s like a department within the University And they have a cache they can issue diplomas from both Universities and therefore you come up with an American diploma There are ones which supposed to be English meduim education but they are fagious a local university has a lot of free students has created a private sector especially for foreigners that’s either a lot more expensive or where they managed to get some funding You have to be careful sometimes the education is not very good So you have to do a lot of quality check Just google university revies and see what people say I always advise my students to find people who’re studying there now through social networks or from your country from your field and write to them and say “what it’s like to study there?” People that know what it’s like to study there who you can understand have the same perspective You can see what they think It’s easy to do that on Linkdin, facebook Don’t be afraid to reach out to people Right, you have to make sure in quality and relevance Another important point is that degree has some value Sometimes in foreign countries they issue a degree from a foreign university that doesn’t really count in that country or that doesn’t apply in other countries You end up having a degree and you don’t know what to do Also these affiliates they may not wish to issue their diploma up the affiliate university and you’ve affiliate with an American University but you don’t have an American diploma You have to be very careful and be orientated Essentially these programs are growing in a rapid rate Middle East countries are building huge universities with their investments and all on the English language medium. If your English’s right, it’s the best place to consider and a growing and vibrant community is growing around the world We here to help Sure. Walker actually has a lot of students whose native language is not English who are studying in non-English countries but they’re studying in English sucessful You have a student in Italy who’s done Ms and Phd After PhD he got into a giant Italian bank He’s an economist Another student who finished engeneering degree in Aalto University in Finland In Finland Practically all other students are in Singapore all the students who have gone they are coming from Russia and from other countries have managed to get jobs and also make roots and establish themselves there This is really important You want to apply your skills you’ve learnt Please fill free to write down the comments which country you’re most interested in Germany has more than 800 programs in English and they’re free.
