Here at AIM, we are committed to ensuring every student has a shot at the best college experience ever, anywhere in the world!

But... Why Europe?

People choose Europe for their college studies for a myriad of reasons. But, especially, students are attracted to Europe's cultural diversity, ease of intercontinental travel, high quality of the education received and tuition costs are lower than those of their US counterparts.

Europe has some of the most prestigious institutions of higher education in the world. Here are a few of them:

University of Oxford
University of Cambridge
University College of London
University of Edinburgh
University of Leeds
Ludwig-Maximillian University of Munich
University of Manchester
University of Zurich

  • The European education system, including the application process for college, is quite different from the US. For the most part, each school has its own application guidelines and admissions requirements, and many schools are not available on the Common Application.
  • Financial Aid may not be as robust for European schools in comparison to US schools, especially for international students.  European schools however tend to be cheaper than US schools.
  • Cultural diversity is one of the main selling points for studying in Europe. But, you need to do adequate research into the culture of the country you want to study in and whether this would be suitable for you. Remember the language barrier!
  • European weather is vastly different to weather you may be accustomed to, so be prepared.
  • Do adequate research into the visa and insurance processes to help you plan out your application as best as possible.
