Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi, Author, Journalist and TV Host
Alumni, University of Paris IV-Sorbonne, France; London School of Economics and Political Science, United Kingdom
The best thing about studying in the EU is the immediate access you have to travel and culture! As a student you get wonderful discounts for museums, exhibits, trade fares, and travel deals so you can easily explore the rich history and culture the EU has to offer. Your education goes beyond university walls!
Not only did I love the ease and enjoyment of living there, I felt that I was able to get an excellent education for a fraction of the cost. This allowed me to truly enjoy the European lifestyle as well and immerse myself in the culture.
Stephanie Kienle-Gonzalez, VP for Sales and Business Development at Philux
Alumni, The London School of Economics and Political Science, United Kingdom; Sciences Po, France
I truly enjoyed not only immersing myself in European culture, but also meeting students and professors from all around the world. My university was a dynamic platform for international students to socialize and learn from each other in a fascinating European setting. It was an experience to remember and I am truly grateful for my time there.
Being part Swiss, I wanted to study closer to my European roots as I grew up in Manila. I yearned for an international setting and for a globally regarded program that would help pique and grow my interests.
Amina Aranaz-Alunan, Designer ARANAZ. Co-founder SoFA Design Institute
Alumni, Istituto Marangoni, Italy
I loved being exposed to the European culture! It is so rich and unfamiliar. It is also great that travelling to other European countries is quick and easy.
(I pursued further studies in EU because) I always gravitated towards their rich culture and history. I love the environment, the cities, and the different languages! I chose the EU over the US because I really wanted a new experience.
Eric Manuel, VP & Head of Real Estate at Primiero Partners
Alumni, The London School of Economics and Political Science, United Kingdom
To be truly innovative, you need to explore a diverse set of ideas. Studying in LSE allowed me to brainstorm with my brilliant professors and fellow students, on some of the most pressing topics of the day. Additionally, the strong global alumni network of the school I chose, allowed me to have a balanced and global perspective.
The school I chose is one of the foremost social science universities globally. The topic I wanted to explore would require a strong background in economics, development studies, geography, and political science. Additionally, I had access to many influential outside speakers at the school as well as leading academics from all around the world.
Audrey Tan-Zubiri, Owner of Furniture Concept Store Designa Italia
Alumni, Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain
The best thing about studying in the EU is its wide network of countries and the varied cultures, history, and people you have the opportunity to be exposed to, which gives you the chance to truly find yourself.
I chose to pursue further studies in the EU because I wanted to immerse myself in a completely different environment and see how I could further develop myself.
Theresa Leung, Creative Director at Leung de Leon Marketing Services
Alumni, University of Portsmouth, United Kingdom
Education was not only my passport to the future, it was also my passport to explore Europe. Studying in the U.K. was one of the best experiences in my life. It opened my eyes to a lot of new things – I immersed myself in different cultures and I met friends for life. It made me a student of the world and I am better for it.
Sunshine Puey, Chef and Owner of Gourmandise
Alumni, Ecole Ritz Escoffer, France
Deciding to study in Paris was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It was a feast for all the sense and definitely food for my soul.
Loralee Baron-Soong, Co-Founder of School of the Fashion and the Arts (SOFA)
Alumni, Istituto Marangoni, Italy; Central St. Martins, United Kingdom
The best thing about studying in the EU is being able to easily travel from one EU country to another on weekends and breaks, meeting people from all over the world while immersing in diverse European cultures.
It was a privilege to study in two of the world’s best fashion and design capitals: Istituto Marangoni in Milan and Central St. Martins in London where everyone just lived and breathed fashion.
Monica Araneta, LBC Foundation
Alumni, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain
Studying in Europe was such as amazing experience that I’d do it all over again!
Noelle Hilario, Creative Entrepreneur
Alumni, Art School Metafora, Spain
Studying in Europe placed me outside my comfort zone and expanded my knowledge through exploring a new culture, language, and a new way of living. I learned immensely both in and out of school, which was truly a rewarding experience.
