Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, various policy adjustments were implemented and students who are preparing to study abroad have become very anxious. At the same time, they got worried about whether the abroad study plan can go smoothly.

What matters should international students pay attention to after 2020? Will it be worth studying abroad in the future? What is the prospect of studying abroad since 2020?

Let me show you the conclusion first. It is worth going overseas for an abroad study.

Various opportunities and benefits since 2020

Although the future development of COVID-19 is confusing, countries are providing anti-epidemic materials and production and living materials against the disease. Effective control of the epidemic situation will gradually restore the order of the world. When the world epidemic is controlled, everything will be reinstated. It is just a matter of time.

Under the influence of the epidemic, we will face various crises and challenges, as well as various opportunities and benefits. For example, due to the cancellation of various exams, many schools do not adopt the unified admission criteria anymore. As long as meeting the temporary standards set by the school, students can get admitted. This is an opportunity. So, be sure to pay close attention to all kinds of overseas study information. Maybe there will be unexpected gains.

Which countries are best worth studying abroad?

In the future, exchanges among countries in the world will only become more frequent, and the demand for international talents will not decrease. A talent with a global outlook will still be popular.

1. Germany

As we all know, Germans are well-known for being rigorous, so is its education. As a big industrial country, Germany is among the top in the world in terms of machinery manufacturing. In addition, economics, law, and art subjects also enjoy a high level of teaching quality. Be it, science students, or art students, you have extensive choices.

The high-quality university-level brings a high employment rate, and the talents graduating from German universities are attached great importance at home and abroad.

It is also notable that public German universities virtually do not charge any tuition for students.

Except for a few private universities and art colleges,

2. Singapore

Throughout the development of education in Singapore, we see it maintaining an open mind, absorbing the essence of different education systems, and embarking on a road of integration between Asia and the West. They are important reasons why Singapore education continues to develop fast. Singapore, sticking to the British education model, has begun to learn from the American education system in the 1990s. At the same time, it strengthened exchanges with Asian country universities, learning from others, and continuing promoting education reform.

In spite of a few numbers of universities in Singapore, Most of them ranked top in the world.

The National University of Singapore ranks 11th in the world, ranking first in Asia (according to the QS World University Rankings); Singapore Management University is only 15 years old, and the business subject has the highest employment rate in Singapore.

3. France

With quality higher education, France currently attracts more than 300,000 international students each year, making it the fifth most popular study destination after the U.S., the U.K., China, and Australia. In France, the main research areas include nuclear/electrical engineering, management, finance and economics, luxury management, art, etc.

France is famous for schools of engineering and business. According to a survey, about one-third of international students enroll in engineering schools every year in France.

4. Malaysia

When it comes to cost-effectiveness of international higher education, Malaysia will always be the chosen one. Tuition and living costs in Malaysia are really low. Compared with the expenses of studying in the U.K., Malaysia maybe four or five times lower in expenditure.

Education quality in Malaysia is the same with Britain. Many universities here cooperate directly with British universities. The same education, lower tuition. Many universities also provide dual degrees/diplomas from a Malaysian university and a British university.

Studying abroad in Malaysia is quite cost-effective and becomes one of the best choices for ordinary working families.

5. Italy

Italy, the ancient civilized country in Europe, is known as the birthplace of ancient Roman culture and the cradle of the Renaissance. So far, Italian universities have retained their original traditions.

Italy does not view education as a profitable industry. Italian public education institutions are free of tuition, and students only need to pay the registration fee to the school (800-2000 euros each year, varying depending on schools).

Italy also has set scholarships, study allowance, and other tuition exemption policies. As long as you study hard, you can get assistance and greatly reduce the financial burden. Also, Italy allows students to do some part-time jobs, earning some living expenses.

6. Netherlands

The Netherlands has a set of monitoring systems and supporting laws and regulations on education quality. The government gives evaluations every three years and certifies universities that offer qualified international courses. Only those schools that meet the standards are eligible to recruit international students.

80% of the Dutch research universities are ranked among the top 200 in the world, only second to Britain and the United States. This makes the Netherlands one of the most densely populated universities in the world.

Since Dutch universities are virtually funded by the government, the Netherlands does not commercialize education. Generally speaking, the undergraduate system in the Netherlands is three to four years, with annual tuition fees ranging from US$7,000 to 12,000. The master’s degree program takes only one year, with an annual tuition fee of approximately US$14,300.

In terms of clothing, feeding, housing, and transportation, the general expenses are about US$14,300 to US$21,480 yuan per year. Studying in the Netherlands is affordable for many ordinary families.

1. Whether the major is an advantageous major at your wanted uni?

2. Could you get accustomed to the cultural atmosphere of the destination country?
