    Hi guys.

    I'm looking online at the universities, so I searched around the world, mostly in Europe, where I can find good quality courses in english that have a "decent" position in the QS rankings.

    I found lots of courses in English, especially in Germany, but the university I found are not better then the one I have where I live.
    In this case there is not reason to spend money and invest in something that I can already have here.

    The best thing I found is the Tu Delft, that have a very good position in the QS rankings, but unfortunately only the course in CS is in english.

    So I'm asking if you know a good university that have courses in english outside Uk or US.

    Thanks for the help.

    I don't think this is a problem you can avoid.

    QS is dominated by British and American universities - the other ones on it are European (mainland) and Asian and don't offer courses in English (except for clinical ones mostly).

    There's Open University that you could use, then use the module credits to transfer to an institution to save some money

    I know that QS is dominated by UK or US but I hoped that there were others alternatives to join a university that is at least in the top 200.

    Thanks

    Well, studying outside of the UK would be expensive. In that case, you might as well stay in the UK, or find somewhere with cheaper tuition, like the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Finland, or Norway.

    The Netherlands has many high quality ones offering courses in English

    Amsterdam, Rotterdam etc.

    Also, are you from the EU? If so, You shouldn’t worry about tuition fees that much as you’ll get a loan that you pay back as,effectively, a graduate tax and it’s written off after 30 years.

    I watched in Netherland, I found the Tu Delft, but they have only a course in CS in english.
    Obviously I'm talking about the bachelor's degree.

    Do not focus on rankings, they mean nothing.

    What's wrong with staying where you are?

    The ranks counts, only as a public opinion.
    I think a person can be great only by his own, by you can0t deny that a good university name is a good brand.

    Anyway I don't like job opportunities of were I actually live, there are very low salaries, and I would like to be independent at 30 years old, and not live with my parent as 70% of people here do.
