Courses English language undergrad courses in Europe (non-uk)

  1. Sep 19, 2011 #1

    I am a UK student and I'll be applying for undergrad physics courses in the UK and hopefully mainland Europe to start next September - just in time for the £9000/year fees to kick in! Most of my chosen UK courses are "Year in Europe" courses anyway, since I would like to study abroad anyway.

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any decent/respected Physics courses (preferably with affordable fees) around Europe taught entirely in English. I speak French to a fair standard, but nowhere near well enough to study in it, and am willing/able to learn any language to the standard needed to survive in that country.

    I am aware of the International Physics Study Programme in Leipzig, Germany and also of the more general sciences programme at University College Utrecht in the Netherlands.

    I'm currently taking A levels in further maths, Physics and Chemistry, and last year I got an A* in A level Maths, and 3 As in AS Physics, Chemistry and Biology, so I'm hoping grades will not be much of an issue.

    Thanks in advance,

    http://www.bachelorsportal.eu might be useful.

    update: see also http://www.daad.de/deutschland/studienangebote/international-programmes/07535.en.html [Broken] (international programmes = English programmes)
    Note that for Germany, most universities are public and the tuition fees are in general 500eur (max) per semester, but this does not apply to Jacobs university which is a private institution.

    good for you! you and your year have been well and truly screwed over by the ConDems.
