Applying to College in Foreign Countries?

I am a high school student in the US and I'm thinking about applying to college in another country (probably a European one). Does anyone know of a good source of information about applying to colleges in other countries as a US citizen? And maybe the equivalent of the college board that could give somewhat objective reviews of the colleges? Thank you!

    Try www.ucas.ac.uk. It provides a lot of information bout getting to UK unis. Undergraduate studies which is known as college in America is also called a uni in UK.

    Basically what u nid to do is to sit for the A-level examination, apply for unis via UCAS and then choose the instituition u want to apply to. Good luck.

    For info about UK unis, start with the UCAS website. You could also try the Times Good University Guide or the Guardian University Guide (see links on sources below). The Times online version only has rankings (overall and individual subjects); the Guardian has short summaries of the unis as well as rankings. If you buy the Times printed one, it'll also have a page or two for each university.

    Bare in mind though, that UK students do seven years of secondary school (3 years in uni for most subjects), rather than six as in the US (4 years in uni), so your qualifications (even with 3 SAT II's) may not be considered equivalent to British exams. Check with individual unis for this.

    You don't need to sit UK exams etc. What you do is find out from that country you want to study what qualification is needed. Plus is your American qualification equal to it. You could appy to American Universities in Europe. Try this
