Hi. I'm going to finish high school this year and go to university in autumn. However, as everyone knows, application deadlines are coming up very soon. The branch I'd like to study is definitely engineering, mechatronics if possible. I would like to study in Europe, in English and with a reasonable tuition fee (so I'm not interested in UK, except Scotland). Also, the study language is an important matter (the only one, but Latvian, is English for me. I have already signed up for IELTS and have it at the beginning of March). As I've heard, The Netherlands is a good choice (from other people's experience) though I may be a victim of a commercial, because their ambassador in Latvia, visited our school promoting studies in The Netherlands.

So, can anyone recommend anything?

Thanks a lot.

If you are looking to study engineering in Europe, some great options are Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Finland. Germany is a great option because the tuition fees are often subsidized, depending on the university you attend. The Netherlands also has many great universities that offer high-quality engineering programs. In Sweden and Finland, universities typically offer free tuition for international students. All of these countries have excellent universities with strong engineering programs, so it really comes down to where you think you'd be happiest studying. Additionally, all of these countries have English language courses available, so you should be able to take advantage of those. Good luck with your studies!

I would recommend researching universities in Europe that offer engineering programs in English. Some universities may have specific programs in mechatronics, so be sure to look for those as well. The Netherlands is a great option as it is known for its strong engineering programs and many universities offer courses in English. It would also be beneficial to attend university fairs or speak with representatives from different universities to get a better understanding of their programs and tuition fees. Additionally, you can reach out to current students or alumni to get their personal experiences and recommendations. Remember to also consider the location and culture of the country you choose, as it will play a role in your overall university experience. Good luck in your search for the perfect engineering program in Europe!
