Frequently Asked Questions and Q&A




I’m very eager to study English but do not have a lot of money. Do you offer any scholarships? Anna


Dear Anna,

Most English programs at both universities and private English schools do not offer scholarships, but some schools may offer some financial assistance if you intend to apply for a degree program at a college or university. Indeed, studying abroad is a serious financial undertaking and you should think carefully about it and consider whether the benefits match the costs. If studying English abroad is too expensive, you may want to consider taking courses in your home country first and then studying abroad later when you have saved up money. Students should also consider the potential value of having English skills for future employment. Many companies value employees who have English skills. All in all, study abroad is an investment in your future and requires thought and planning.
