Hi guys, so I'm going to be 19 in 2 months, and can't go to a uni here in the UK (I have my reasons), and have no idea what degree I want to pursue, except that I want to definitely do a STEM degree. That means I have to study abroad but I have no knowledge on this.. I did ALevels in Maths, Chemistry and History. Can somebody help me please?

Hi! Thanks for your response. That's what I'm thinking of doing, do you have any knowledge on studying abroad if you don't speak German for example? And college in the states is uni for us right? It's waaay too expensive there isn't it?

When I looked, most of the courses were taught in English, but it doesn't hurt to learn the language of the country you will be learning in.

Oh that's great, I see what you mean but It would be very difficult for me. Do you know of a few universities that offer STEM degrees in english? Thank you, it's greatly appreciated

Nope but I think it is generally the case. If it was me I'd be looking at Scandinavian countries.


It was possibly Copenhagen.

Cool, thank you! Ideally I was thinking of the Netherlands and Germany, but I'll try Scandinavian countries too!

I very much doubt that's true. I know many/most postgraduate courses are in english but not undergraduate.

The Netherlands is a good idea, as they have courses in english and are inexpensive. However they tend to let lots of people in to uni but cull them during their course. Here we're stricter on letting people in and you have to properly mess up to get chucked out.

Thank you for the response. What do you mean by they 'cull them during their course' please? And do you think they have STEM courses in English?
