Where do these ratings come from?
Every day, EDUopinions reaches out to students from around the world to gather information about their experience and to provide them with help. After several years of experience, we have been able to accumulate several thousand verified reviews in which students rate multiple criteria such as the quality of student life, accommodation, et cetera (learn about the importance of verified student reviews). Therefore, rest assured that these numbers come directly from your fellow students in these countries.

I graduated the economic and finance master at Sciences Po Paris few years ago. The knowledge i have acquired from it was enormous and has helped me a lot through my career. The exigence of the teachers pushed us to do better, and made us see the world through a different perspective. The excellence of the school is due to their professors and their teaching skills. The accommodations are super well-located in Paris, in one of the best district. It is surrounded by many restaurants, cafés and parks. The buildings is quite ancient but has a lot of charm. The size of the classes vary a lot depending on the subject, going from 30 to 200 for some lectures. The atmosphere is great, there are many opportunities to meet people through clubs and events organized by the school. The alumni group is extremely active and the networking is easy. I would highly recommend this school for the people looking for acquiring knowledge and excellence, and who wants a very good career prospect.
Student life rating
Generally speaking, students are very satisfied with the student life in these countries, with scores ranging between 3.9 and 4.3:
- France: 4.3
- Germany: 4.2
- The United Kingdom: 4.2
- The Netherlands: 4.1
- Spain: 3.9
All of these countries are home to numerous big cities, such as Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam and London, which are true student hubs. Indeed, they are filled with bars, clubs, a lot of cultural activities and job opportunities. Additionally, they often welcome branches of big companies or even governmental institutions. Therefore, universities make sure to organise events with them.
Some of these cities, however, are very costly to live in. Therefore, make sure that you are aware of the various costs so that you can apply early for scholarships if needed.
All universities are different, but the “building place/powerhouse” described in this review is present in several institutions located in this part of the world. Additionally, there is a great diversity of schools. Hence, you could go to a campus with small and interactive courses, or enjoy the anonymity provided by huge lecture halls. If you have the opportunity to visit schools before you apply or accept an offer, we advise you to do it. Indeed, this will enable you to assess the quality of the facilities depending on what you are looking for and the studies you want to follow. In addition, you can get in touch with one of our experts to seek more information and advice.

Countries like the United Kingdom, France and Germany have been attracting international students for a very long time, and this is continuously growing:
- The United Kingdom: 4.5
- France: 4.4
- Germany: 4.4

Logically, because the level of education and the overall satisfaction of students are high, these countries attract students from abroad. In other words, these countries are great at incorporating an international component to education, which has become increasingly important in our globalising world.
I love UCL, I would say though administration can be a bit questionable at times. Excellent teaching, you get what you pay for. I would love to study here for the rest of my life. I will miss it a lot when I leave.
