Europe is home to medieval country houses, glacier-filled mountains, a common economic system, and great cultural variety, with a landmass of over 40 nations. Every year, over four European nations appear among the top ten happiest countries in the world, according to the World Happiness Report. Here are a few fascinating facts that students considering studying in Europe should be aware of:
Overseas students who wish to study in a European country can take advantage of the government's 100,000 scholarships and financial aid programs. Some grants pay only the tuition costs for overseas students, while others cover the complete tuition, lodging, and living expenses. With the number of students traveling to Europe increasing every year, candidates must have an outstanding academic record in order to be considered for a scholarship.
International students who qualify for the Erasmus+ Scheme and study in one of Europe's 33 Erasmus countries are excused from paying tuition fees for their programs for the duration of their studies. Some overseas students may be eligible for bursaries to help with travel and living expenses if they fulfill the qualifying criteria.
Students who do not have EEA/EU citizenship or nationality must apply for a student visa in order to study full-time in a European country. International students can stay, study, and work part-time while on a temporary residence visa for the duration of their academic program. The procedures for determining visa eligibility and the requirements differ from nation to country.
While most European nations allow overseas students to work part-time on a temporary residence visa, some limit the amount of time they may work in their country. In this instance, students must apply for an extra work permit in order to work for a longer period of time.
Prospective international researchers can apply for a scientific visa to remain and work in any EU country to conduct scientific research. Austria, Bulgaria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Finland, Greece, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Sweden, and Spain are among the EU countries that welcome international researchers.
