Education abroad: 7 best countries and 7 promising ideas
Over the past thirty years, the number of students going to study in another country has grown fivefold. What makes about four million students leave their country every year?
The benefits are not only obvious, but also confirmed by statistics. 84% of students acquire the necessary skills for their future profession, 96% of students feel more confident, and 80% quickly adapt to the workplace. Education abroad is a global trend. And this trend is inextricably linked with the situation on the labor market. So, the most popular direction for studying in another country is business and management. They are followed by engineering, programming, sociology, and life sciences. And the efforts are not in vain. Every second employer notes that such experience is an advantage when hiring.
The absolute leader in the number of foreign students is the United States - 23% of the total number of students. 35% of students choose European countries. Also in the top countries are Australia, Germany and Canada.
Among European countries, the most popular is studying in the UK. Every fourth student who goes to study in Europe comes here. Once again, there is no need to talk about the prestige of British education. Take only the fact that in the top ten of the ranking of the best universities in the world, four places are occupied by universities in the United Kingdom.
True, educational institutions in Great Britain are known not only for the quality of education, but also for the high cost of training. Especially undemocratic prices will seem to a foreign student.

Another problem may be finding a job after graduation, if the student plans to stay in the country. You should think about this already during your studies; internship would be a good option. For example, Jersey Graduate School of Business students have the opportunity to take a paid internship with job prospects. It is a British offshore zone in the strait between France and England. Offshore education is gaining popularity and attracts students with relatively low tuition fees. So, a year at the Graduate School of Business costs about 12 thousand pounds.
Of course, when choosing a university, you should be guided by the percentage of students who found a job after graduation. According to this indicator, the University of Aberdeen in Scotland is among the five best universities in the UK. Education in the oil and gas industry is especially attractive for foreign students. Aberdeen, the oil capital of Europe, is home to the head offices and subsidiaries of multinational energy companies who are ready to take students for practical training. The cost of a year of study at the University of Aberdeen is 17.8 thousand pounds.
To enter and study in British universities, you need a high level of English - IELTS 6-6.5. Also, due to the differences in the education systems of Russia and the UK, the student will definitely need:
