American Universities in Europe

The American higher education system has many advantages – a flexible curriculum, a variety of courses, transfer choices, study abroad opportunities and more. But for some American and International students, the dream of studying in Europe is just as strong as their desire to obtain an American degree. Some students may wish to learn a foreign language and travel through Europe without compromising their university education. Others may wish to study in Europe, but have not mastered the language requirements to do so at a European university. And yet others may just want to stay home while obtaining an American degree. For many, the solution is to attend an American university in Europe. Here is a list of universities that follow the American higher education system. Most of these universities offer academic degrees and are accredited by US commissions and local country authorities.

    I’m currently a student at Georgia Regents University located in Augusta, GA. However, I’m looking forward to move to Germany in the future. Also, I want to continue my education in Germany as well. Thus, I’ve done some research on the internet and I found University of Maryland University College which has several locations in Germany. Based on their website I got the impression that they only accept military members? I’m a civilian, and I have never been in the military service.

    Do they accept American civilians as well?

      Here is their statement on eligibility: “Members of the U.S. Armed Forces, American employees of the U.S. Government, and their family members residing within an overseas contracted site may enroll in undergraduate classes through University of Maryland University College Europe.” You may want to expand your search to Switzerland, Austria and Italy. Have you contacted the Study Abroad office at your school? Most of the time, they have agreements with universities in Europe where you can spend a semester or year abroad and earn college credits.

    We are moving to Germany from USA, got a nursing job at the US Military Hospital in Landstahl Germany. My son is a sophomore in University in USA and is very excited at the prospect of studying in Germany/Europe. We have been researching schools and found University of Maryland University College in Heidelberg Germany. Is this a reputable college? I don’t see it listed here, are there any other schools that offer degrees in Computer Science. It has to be a school where the medium of instruction is English. Would it be better for him to study in England? Otherwise I will have to find out a way of him staying back here and continuing his education.

    Thanks and Kind Regards,

      UMUC Europe admissions eligibility includes military members, American employees of the U.S. government and their family members. UMUC has a strong reputation in the military and government communities, so it is a very good option for your son. He will always have the option to transfer to a university in England or the US or go for a master’s degree in a different country.
