Education System in Europe

Though each European country has its distinct higher education system, all fall under the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The EHEA system and the European Qualification Framework (EQF) help examine and monitor the syllabus across all European countries to follow uniformity and allow Indonesian students, academicians and researchers across Europe to collaborate seamlessly. 

The programmes to study in Europe involve classes, with assessment through exams, coursework and essays. Many programs in European institutions comprise a specific period to work in industry or allied projects. Besides, Indonesian students can opt for modular or hybrid course structures, (i.e.) students can construct a customised programme by opting for different units or modules of study in an academic year (choose from a wide range of courses). For instance, if you are studying Mechanical Engineering, you might choose one unit on Thermodynamics, one module on Machine Design, and one unit on Kinematics of Machinery.

Student Visa to Study in Europe

Students who aren’t a non - EEA/EU citizenship/nationality must apply for a student visa to study in a European country full-time. With a temporary resident visa, Indonesian students can stay, study, and work part-time during their entire academic tenure. The protocols for visa eligibilities and the requisites vary from country to country. 

While most countries in Europe permit Indonesian students to work part-time on a temporary resident visa, the others place restrictions on the number of hours students can work in their country. In that case, students need to apply for an additional work permit to work for more duration.

International prospective researchers can apply for a scientific visa to stay and work in any of the EU’s countries for carrying out scientific research work. The EU’s countries that welcome international researchers are  Austria, Bulgaria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Finland, Greece,  Germany, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Sweden and Spain.

Overseas Health Insurance to Study in Europe

In order to study in Europe countries, overseas health insurance is mandatory for those pursuing both undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Students studying full-time must insure themselves locally, or can reach out to AECC Global for choosing a qualified health coverage plan for their study period. Students can also contact their respective universities’ international offices to acquire sufficient information about health insurance and other allied queries.

The two major types of health insurance to look into while studying in Europe are:

  • Liability Insurance - It is vital as physical ailments could happen at any time and may cost hundreds of Euros if not insured accordingly. 
  • Household Insurance - This insurance covers costs of potential damages of any of the household items in your off-campus accommodation.
