    I've set my sights on studying German (and maybe a little Russian) at university, but seeming as the UK tuition fees are especially extortionate for foreign language degrees (4 years, so £36,000) I have decided to study abroad where it is much much cheaper as I didn't really fancy paying off a huge debt :') The only university abroad at all which offers full undergraduate degrees for learners of a second/foreign language that I can currently find is the University of Groningen in The Netherlands.

    It's a great place, and I've already attended their open day, but I like to keep my options open; are there any other universities abroad anyone can think of that offer my subject(s) for English/non-native speakers?
    Any suggestions will help

    Unfortunately there are not that many places where you can study languages abroad in English. I think you can also do German as part of Leiden University's International Studies degree. There are a lot of 'University Colleges' in the Netherlands which offer American-style Liberal Arts degrees; you may perhaps be able to study languages there too.

    I think there are also a couple of 'European Studies' degrees in Sweden, the Netherlands and Poland which involve some language modules. See here:


    Another option is moving to Germany, spend a year intensively learning the language and then applying to do a degree taught in German in Germany.
