Bordering with 6 other Central European countries, Slovakia is the ideal place for international students who want to experience a great higher education, but also have the chance to explore outside of their studies. Slovakia is a member of the EU and the Schengen Area, meaning that once you have a residence permit, you will find it easy to travel around Europe.
Slovakia has a well-developed education system, which extends to its higher education offerings. There are several publicly funded universities that are tuition fee free for EU/EEA students. You can choose to apply to an academic university or a professional and vocational school, which do not use the word ‘university’.
Outside of your studies, you will find that Slovakia has a multitude of interesting cultural and tourist attractions that you may want to visit. This will allow you to integrate into your new Slovakian life and make the most of your study abroad experience.
