Studying in Another System

If you are adventuresome, independent, and determined as well as well qualified academically and linguistically you may be interested in and able to study in a foreign institution of higher education for a regular course leading to a degree recognized by that institution and its parent system.

Studying in another country's education system means total immersion in the academic and everyday culture of that country; obeying its laws, regulations, and customs; and adjusting to the reality of different ways of thinking and doing while being a citizen ambassador of American culture and education. It is simultaneously a tremendous challenge and opportunity, one to be embraced if you are ready and also planned with care.
