Best Undergraduate Courses For Study Abroad
Bachelor of Business and Management
Business and Management is a broad discipline that includes up to 11,000 study options. With such a varied offer, it is not surprising that this is one of the most requested undergraduate courses.
Some of the most popular areas of study within this discipline are Business Administration, Marketing, Finance, and Accounting, and once you graduate you can work as a manager, market researcher, accountant, tax advisor, and financial inspector, among others.
Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and IT
We think you won’t be surprised to find Computer Science and IT on our list, as there’s virtually no industry that doesn’t use or isn’t affected by digital technologies. Computer science focuses on programming and software, while IT deals with the maintenance of computer systems and the creation of networks and databases.
Some of the best job options after finishing your studies are a data analyst, IT consultant, help desk officer, system developer, and game developer.
Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering
As engineering is a complex discipline, including everything related to innovation, design, construction, maintenance, and research, it is no surprise that we have two engineering-related specializations on our list.
Studies in Electrical Engineering will prepare you to work with any device and system that requires electrical power, including digital gadgets and devices. And let’s be honest: who doesn’t want a headline that basically encourages you to never take your eyes off your phone again?
Pursuing studies in Electrical Engineering will open doors (and windows) for you to sectors such as telecommunications, aerospace, media, and broadcasting, where you can work as an aerospace engineer, broadcast engineer, network engineer, and, of course, an electrical and electronic engineer.
Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering and Construction
Civil Engineering and Construction are more necessary than ever now that cities have become dense population centers. With that degree, you can find work as a consultant and contractor, civil engineer, design engineer, and why not, even as a sustainability consultant.
Bachelor of Medicine
People will always need doctors. And I don’t think we surprised anyone when we said that. Medicine will never go out of style, and we can prove it with the 6,000 programs that are available in the world.
Although a Bachelor of Medicine degree requires your commitment for at least 5-6 years, it pays off in the end. You will be able to get employment in the state as well as in private hospitals and clinics.
Bachelors in Medicine
In addition to Human Medicine, you should know that some disciplines that are attracting more and more are Nutrition & Dietetics, and Physiotherapy.
The growing demand for nutritionists and physiotherapists is closely linked to the increase in the rate of obesity in the population and the growing postural problems of people who work in offices.
Don’t neglect exercise, children. Just no.
We know there are plenty of options to choose from, but we hope we’ve narrowed the list down to the essentials. When choosing an undergraduate discipline to study, we recommend that you strike a balance between your passion and what is needed in the job market.
And, whatever you decide to do, never forget to have fun and good luck!
