All About Graduate School in Europe -- With a Spotlight on Germany

Session Overview:
Europe has traditionally been and continues to be one of the top destinations for graduate study. Every year, nearly two million international students pursue a short- or long-term study mobility in Europe. And for good reasons: low or no tuition fees, high-quality academic experiences, excellent institutional reputations, and good student life support. But each country has its own customs and culture around international student mobility and international study programs, making choosing a destination, institution, and/or program feel like an insurmountable task. In this session, you will learn about the graduate school opportunities and options available, how to navigate the graduate school search, and which factors to consider when choosing a program and destination. Then, using Germany as an example, you will learn about the aspects for consideration to align your graduate school plans with your future  career aspirations that you may not have even thought about. By the end of this crash course in all things graduate school in Europe, you will feel more informed about whether or not you want to pursue a program in Europe and if so, what your next steps should be.

This event is supported by College of Liberal Arts Career Services, Career Services Administration, and the Learning Abroad Center, and is open to all UMN students and recent alumni.
