If you are considering studying to Master’s in science degree abroad, the next question is where to go. Now you don’t only have your local, or national options to choose from, you can choose from alternatives all over the world. Make sure to look for a university that is highly regarded in the field you are planning to study. Also contemplate what places in the world would be most exiting and the best learning experience for you as a person. You might want to combine your science studies with learning a specific language. So take your time to think about what you want out of your experience.

What knowledge will be useful in the future?

The answer to the question above is not a simple one. Over the last decades the technology has evolved so fast it would have been impossible to predict what the future would bring. But there is no question that the future involves understanding of different cultures and languages. Even if we see tendencies of deglobalization in the United Kingdoms exit out of the EU, and the election of Donald Trump as the president of the United States, there is no way that the need for this kind of knowledge will decrease, but instead will be more important than ever.
