Meet Schiller International University: An American University in Europe

14/06/2024

There aren’t many institutions that will offer you the chance to study at an American university in Europe degree—but Schiller International University is one of them.

Schiller was the first American university to establish itself in Europe all the way back in 1964 (the school celebrates its 60th anniversary this year). As was the goal when it first began, Schiller enables students from around the world to study an American-style degree at any of its European campuses in Spain, France, or Germany. Alternatively, students can opt for an international experience by spending part of their degree at the US campus in Florida.

Luckily, you don’t have to travel all the way to the US to explore your options at Schiller International University.

On Friday 21st June 2024, Schiller International University will hold its annual Undergraduate Open Day in Madrid, where you can meet students, explore the city-centre campus, and find out more about the unique blend of American and European educational practices on offer.

I am happy with my experience at this university

I would recommend this university for people who would love to get both American and UK degree and you could live in 4 different countries(Spain, Germany, France and the US). I personally studied in Madrid. My experience was very pleasant, the teachers are very nice, always willing to help you. People studying there are also very nice and come from different countries which makes the atmosphere very interesting since you learn a lot about other cultures. Nobody gives you pressure, which makes studying pleasant and doesn’t stress you out all the time. I studied international relations and politics. Professor Shaw was very nice to listen to, taught us a lot. Also what I liked a lot is that we had many different classes such as economics, business, language classes, which is very diverse. The campus was quite small when I studied there 3-4 years ago but now I think they expanded it and now have a big campus. I am quite satisfied about my experience there, so would recommend this university to others.

The feedback

I like it the staff is helpful, and it’s organized too. The courses were good and I think the quizzes and midterms, and final tests proved to be linked with the reading assignments. I also think that the instructors were very helpful.

Critical Thinking. Professor labor experience.

I feel that it is a great opportunity and for Americans to travel and study abroad to expand multicultural and perspectives.
This being the fact that we Americans can get some tuition assistance.
My experience with professors that have practical and enduring experience in their respective fields, plus ongoing activity in external organizations that impact my career area.
