Go to college in Europe!

There's a lot of interest in going to college in Europe. Not just for a semester with a study abroad program, but the whole 4 years. Cost is a factor driving this interest: most countries offer college degrees at a lower cost than the U.S. However, there are differences, especially in campus life: student housing is not as community minded as a typical U.S. residential campus. Here are some resources to locate the right European college for you:

Netherlands is the search engine for the Netherlands with about 2000 courses in English. Tuition fees are generally about 2000€ for EU students and +/- 9000€ for non-EU students (depending on the university). No need to speak Dutch, (almost) everybody speaks English in the Netherlands. Students study in a real international and multicultural environment.
