Study in Europe
Europe is giving you a good chance that you will soon become an international student. Europe is a very popular education destination amongst students from all over the world. However, some countries are more popular than others. The famous countries in Europe are Finland, France, Netherland, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. There are many other countries which give enormous opportunities to study at Top Universities. Other than UK and Ireland, there are more than 30 Universities in QS world top 100 ranking, which belong to European countries. To wave the awareness amongst the students Europe has started various students’ initiatives like Erasmus Mundus for students’ scholarships and transfer programs. There are more than four thousand higher education institutions in Europe, from top-level research establishments to small, teaching-focused colleges. Europe itself is no less diverse, extending from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
Many a time students and parents have asked us this question. We explain them some real time examples which are the eye opener for them. We are bound and compelled to provide the correct information to students to choose correct study destination Europe. Below we have quoted a student interview from studyineurope dot eu which is an eye opener to any student:
“Question: Natacha, what master's program did you study?
Answer: I studied a Master in Marketing Management in Madrid, Spain.
Q: What motivated you to study a master's degree in Europe?
A: I come from Venezuela and was looking for an opportunity to experience living in a different country. Spain sounded interesting for many reasons: the language, the culture and the fact that it was in Europe. I really wanted to enjoy the old continent and all its history. And I did. I was accepted in a top institute in Madrid. The quality of the education was amazing and I got to meet people from around the world.
Q: How has your master's degree in Europe contributed / is contributing to your work?
A: From a technical point of view, the knowledge acquired during my studies has helped me out greatly to face tough economic times. I've been able to apply management strategies and tools to increase efficiencies in our business. From a cultural point of view, learning to work with culturally diverse people can become a great asset when working in international companies. Thus, a city like Madrid can offer you this kind of diversity.
Q: Finally, what would you recommend to a student who is considering whether to study a master's degree in Europe or working in a company after his/her first cycle studies?
A: If you're trying to move to another country looking for better opportunities than the ones your own country offers, studying a master's degree is a great choice: you get to know how the life is in that country while you're studying and probably look for job opportunities to stay there after finishing. Studying a master's after working in a company will obviously give you advantages during your studies because of the experience acquired. Whatever you choose, the most important decision is to do it! Without any doubt, studying a master's degree in marketing in Europe has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life so far.”

Being in India, we provide a detailed procedure under Erasmus Mundus program. Sometime in Pune, we have experienced that because of lack of awareness of this initiative, students fail to achieve adequate scholarship and funding.
Under Action 1, Erasmus Mundus supports Joint Programmes (Masters Courses and Joint Doctorates) that are operated by consortia of higher education institutions from the EU and (since 2009) elsewhere in the world. They provide an integrated course and joint or multiple diplomas following study or research at two or more higher education institutions.
Erasmus Mundus joint programs-
Erasmus Mundus funds a number of scholarships for students and academics studying or teaching on Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses. Since 2010, fellowships have also been available for doctoral candidates following one of the Joint doctorates.
Scholarships cover participation costs, subsistence costs, and insurance for the duration of the study period. Many students also have the right to a contribution to travel costs.
Erasmus Mundus Partnerships-
Under Action 2, Erasmus Mundus Partnerships bring together higher education institutions from Europe and from a particular region in the world. Together, the partnerships manage mobility flows between the two regions for a range of academic levels—undergraduate, masters, doctorate, post-doctorate—and for academic staff.
Scholarships cover participation costs, subsistence costs, insurance for the duration of the study period, plus a contribution to travel costs.
Erasmus Mundus Attractiveness Projects-
Under Action 3, Erasmus Mundus funds projects to enhance the attractiveness and visibility of European higher education worldwide. Activities focus on the international dimension of higher education, often targeting a particular region or academic discipline.
