How you can have a debt-free undergraduate degree: move abroad

Are you tired of seeing how everyone in your group of friends or in your family carries a debt of at least £30,000? University fees in the United Kingdom start at over £9000 a year, no matter what degree you are studying.

Students in the United Kingdom usually study undergraduate degrees which are 3 years long and usually take a year out before starting a Master’s degree. However helpful, the year out is not compulsory for every type of degree.

Say you want to study a 3-year-long undergraduate degree plus a 2-year-long Master’s degree. It’s a simple sum, you will end up with £45,000 to pay your student finance provider throughout your life.

 

Here’s our proposal:

French language lessons

French language: Baguette vs Reality

“Baguette, Paris, c’est la vie, j’adore la France!”, “Montmatre, le Louuuvre, le fromage, comme ci comme ca… “ Those are the word sand expressions that I keep earing all the time from foreigners. But the French language is way more than that.

Let’s go back really briefly in history. French was born 2000 years ago before JC in La Gaule known now as France. The French language derives from the Celtic, Latine and Greek languages.  In the 9th century different dialects started to emerge in France but it is only in the 13th century that a specific language has appeared. Over the centuries, the name of the language as evolved from Francien (middle age period) to Francois (13th) and finally Francais during the 15th century.

Nowadays, the French language contains more than 33 different sounds, 140 ways to write them with only 23 letters … And rumours has it that to be consider fluent in French you are supposed to know 500 different grammar rules. No worries, I am French, I studied Literature in High-school and I may know 50 of them…

Romania beautiful country Study German in Germany

My experience in Germany

The month of July was sprinkled with dozens of ‘first-times’ for me.

After being offered a grant from university, I found myself planning the trip to Munich, Germany. This was about to be the first time travelling entirely on my own to a country I have never been to before, speaking a language that I was not completely fluent in. Needless to say, I was more than nervous.
