Beyond the States, a resource that educates students and parents about the benefits of and opportunities for bachelor’s degree programs in Europe in 300 schools with over 1700 accredited bachelor's degrees taught completely in English. Attend our free webinar to provide an overview of the options and process to study abroad. These programs have an an average tuition of just over $7,000, and almost 1/3 of these programs cost less than $4,250 per year. Further, most are just three years in duration which adds to the overall savings. We have found that, in many cases, it costs less to get an entire degree in Europe (including travel costs) than one year of private or out of state tuition in the US! Please attend this webinar about the admissions requirements, quality indicators, educational differences, benefits, obstacles, student life, housing, as well as an open Q&A session.
