Grads Abroad: How to Get Your University Degree Abroad

American students: Everything you need to know about attending universities outside the US

This course is designed for American residents.

Imagine studying your favorite subject surrounded by peers from around the world. Imagine late-night study sessions filled with foreign treats brought from your international friends. Imagine learning new languages just by hanging out with your friends.

When you attend university abroad, you gain access to people and places around the world. Choosing college abroad means:

  • Less debt
  • More adventures
  • New perspectives
  • A global mindset
  • New academic challenges
  • Friends from around the world
  • international career connections

Students in this course will learn the necessary information they need to plan a successful academic adventure as a full time, enrolled graduate student at a university abroad.

With this course you'll learn how to:

  • Identify requirements and expectations from admissions committees abroad
  • Fund your degree abroad and find schools that are covered by the US Federal Loan Program
  • How to select a program abroad that fits your academic and professional interests
  • Ask the right questions before deciding on a program
  • Navigate the student visa process
  • Prepare for departure
  • Succeed academically and personally during your time abroad
  • Position yourself for employment (at home or abroad) post-graduation

Participants in this course also get access to the private Facebook group GradsAbroad, a community for the globally ambitious. I'm bringing interesting programs and people directly to you:

  • Highlighted graduate programs around the world
  • Funding opportunities
  • Interviews with students who completed their degree program abroad
  • Interviews with admissions reps from universities abroad

I built this course because navigating the options for college abroad is overwhelming. I know. I did it. In 2006 I quit my job, sold my car and all my belongings, and hopped on a plane to Denmark for a Masters degree. The experience was incredibly impactful. It remains one of the best decisions I've ever made.
