For many students education stops on the day that they walk out of school or college with their exam results, or the day they graduate from University, doffing their cap to the Chancellor and throwing the mortarboard up into the sky, (just why do they do that?) For others however, that is just the end of a chapter as they look to go on to do further education either at the same University, or maybe even overseas.
Travelling abroad to do a Masters course or maybe to do a whole new degree can open a number of doors. For example, you’re in the prime position to offer your services as a speaker of your native tongue to an employer in that country. Many media examples in Scandinavia, to give an example, are on the lookout for natural English speakers to help produce their content for the English market, and if you went to study in Stockholm or Oslo – for instance – you’re in the box seat.
Eastern Europe is another location where Brits or English-speakers could benefit. Countries in that part of the world are quickly becoming favoured by the likes of the US, UK and Australia for outsourcing work and having your expertise on-hand will help them to attract new business and appeal to the “larger” organisations.
Take Israel as an example. The history of the inhabitants of the country goes back thousands of years, but it’s relatively young in nation terms. There is even a saying that the whole history of the country is focused around literature and knowledge, and that is one of the reasons why many students choose to study in the country, both native Israelis and those travelling from abroad. You only have to search for MA Israel online to see hundreds of results with courses and information.
There are all kinds of study choices available, from conflict studies to business, engineering to religion, opening the doors to all kinds of students from a variety of backgrounds and from all kinds of degree courses.
