Applying to universities abroad (should I bother???)Watch
So with the results out, I have not done great enough to enter my chosen unis which is frustrating but I'm coping. While scrolling through Clearing and seeing my options, I have suddenly realized that I had an interest in studying abroad. People would assume that I am referring to studying in the UK since I am from Northern Ireland, but no, I really want to take my French to a whole other level and study in Belgium or France (or any uni that will improve my French). I love French and it is my best subject, I have actually started to think that I might end up working at an international company in a french speaking area after uni.I don't know where to begin! Will I have to wait until next year to try calling up unis in EU countries or is it too late? Where do I apply for unis outside the UK? Is there student finance available? I don't know how to go about this whole new epiphany... Should I even take this risk or calm myself down and just go to a uni in the UK and call it a day?
Just go to the university websites and check which requirements they need for international students - it will vary depending on the university and the country. You'll probably need to apply via the university (not UCAS - it's different).
I'm no expert - I'll only apply for EU universities if UCAS doesn't go to plan (Plan B), so I haven't researched anything very extensively.
