    I'm seriously considering applying to study in Europe as a UK student. I have lived in Europe before and loved it, and wish to study there full time.
    How have people done it before who are not fully funded by their parents?
    Are there loans I can apply for?
    I'm going to study chemical engineering in the UK this September so a related course is what I'm looking for. I would only study courses taught fully in English.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

    The first course off top of my mind is Chemical Engineering at the University of Groningen. I am not sure about loans, but tuition fees are significantly lower compared to the UK.

    If you took a year out to work and then worked through the summer holidays then you could probably self fund living costs for a bachelor's degree, I think doing so for the 5 years of masters study is unrealistic though. It's going to cost about £7.5k per year in living costs (potentially more depending on the city and tuition fees), and if you're very lucky you'll earn 20k in your gap year plus 3.5k in future years although more realistically you'll make 14k in your gap year then 2k in your summers.

    However I'd argue you should consider the value of a European degree taught in English, it's not going to be viewed as highly as one taught in the UK or one taught in Europe in the country's language. You would be better off doing a year abroad where you're studying the subject in the language and then going back to do your masters.
