Grad School in Europe

A photo of Ava Ava
I am interested in completing a master's program in Europe, preferably in political science/international relations. I would like to apply to universities that are not too expensive and a program that is relatively easy to get into and complete, and I would like the language of instruction to be English. Anyone have any suggestions?

So you want to get into an easy and non-competitive grad school? Have fun getting a degree from a worthless institution

Note the word "relatively" ! FYI: I got into LSE for grad school but can't go this year due to financial difficulties, hence I'm looking for schools with lower reputations, which might be cheaper.

I would caution you about going that route. Reputation can be a pretty big deal for grad school, and you could essentially just be wasting your money by going to a "lower" institution, even if it is cheaper. Why the focus on Europe? Have you applied for SSHRC?

I know, initially I was willing to pay the high tuition and living expenses using loans but a lot of my profs and colleagues advised me against it. The last thing I wanted was to graduate from a master's program with a huge debt and no job, so I didn't go this year. I still don't know if LSE would have been worth it. Why Europe? I don't know, I've always wanted to go to Europe for grad school and I did my bachelor's at UofT, so I want to try something different. I'm still open to applying to Canadian/American schools. I have not applied for SSHRC.

Yeah I'm an advocate for funded or at least cheap graduate degrees. You probably made the right choice. Try to apply for SSHRC, that could help your situation immensely. Otherwise I know nothing about polisci

When it comes to grad schools (at least for the programs I'm applying to), cheapness and good reputation can sometimes be mutually exclusive, which is why I am now looking for mid-reputation schools... I will look into SSHRC, but would I be eligible if I haven't started grad school yet?
Thanks for your replies!

Yes, SSHRC can and should be applied for before you start grad school. It's the same as NSERC, which I applied for this year (in my last year of undergrad)
