School Stuff

Starting classes again monday. Kind of looking forward to it actually.

Thought I'd ask seeing as there's people from all over here. Anyone have any experience with study abroad or exchange programs?

http://www.globalinksabroad.org/stud...egrees_abroad/

I've been looking into this and I'm very interested in pursuing my Bachelors in a place that isn't here because I think the experience would be incredible. A lot of the programs that are offered through UCF here are 4 month programs and while that sounds like it would be fun, I'd really like to have some more time somewhere else to where I could maybe start taking care of moving out of the US altogether.

Re: School Stuff

About to start what is (hopefully) my last semester in college. Ironically, this is my first semester ever in which I am on the wait list/have to crash every class I am taking. Fun.

Re: School Stuff

I want to go back to school but it's so goddamn expensive in the US. I'd have to switch to a student visa which I cannot afford to do.

Re: School Stuff

That it is. I'm trying to see what I can get situated in the way of grants, scholarships, and loans right now myself. Financial aid covers my classes right now but if I wanted to go to a University or something later I'd basically count on spending upwards of 45k.

Re: School Stuff

I spent a semester in Leiden, Netherlands, and intended to study in Cha-Am, Thailand but safety issues made them reluctant to send students to Thailand at the time.

The University I went to offered study abroad programs throughout Europe and Southeast Asia, but they had their own campuses, or worked in conjunction with Universities in the region. I don't have experience in actually coordinating it because the University facilitates travel plans and provides dorms/residence.

If I recall correctly, the US State Department offers 'critical language' programs designed for American students to become proficient in certain foreign languages. I believe they pay travel expenses and provide per diem, but one would have to probably teach English to locals and plan to utilize the language in their future career. Plans were in order for me to study in Japan, but then Fukushima Diiachi happened. So, what the fuck, Asia doesn't want me.

There's also a program where you can study for a semester on a ship, I don't know what the fuck that is all about.

I have a friend who's actually getting ready to go do that same thing in Japan but he doesn't speak Japanese at all. I think he's going to be like an actual english/grammar teacher is what he means though. Regardless, everything is paid for during the duration of him being there, so that's actually what caught my interest into looking into it myself...


Only...


Not in Japan so I don't have to worry about having mutants for babies one day.

Where? If it's Maskinteknik you mean then I think it's a pretty good choice. Most of the jobs I've seen advertised have been for those kinds of engineers.

I'm finishing my Master's degree in Applied Mathematics this year. Then it's off to wage slave in the weapons/car industry until my $53000 student loans are paid off and I finally die

Yup Maskinteknik it is, though only the 3 year version. I feel I dont have the energy for a 5 years with masters and stuff. And they got it in my hometown here in Dalarna so thats chill

I take it you study at Chalmers? I so envy you, math is my favourite!

That's disheartening to hear because I eat sushi at least once a week...

Also, at least you'll have a cool job. I'd always thought it seemed interesting enough anyways.

I study at Gothenburg University but the actual education is at Chalmers campus and at the master's level all of the courses are taken together.
