Expats Education

My cousin has been in the military for 10 years now, and in that time has traveled quite extensively.  He has said time and time again that he would consider going back to school, but with a wife and rambunctious three year in tow, it appears he's going to be a lifer in the military.  His wife, on the other hand, has taken advantage of pursuing her education.  Utilizing his benefits, she has continued her education despite being uprooted from Germany to the United States in the last year in a half.  She's almost finished her Bachelor's degree, and plans to pursue a Master's as well. All the while, not knowing where they will be sent off next.

As I talked to her, a few thoughts came to mind about opportunities for Americans who have considered pursuing their education outside of the United States beyond the semester or year long study abroad experience.  I looked into a few schools that many Americans have attended that gave them an opportunity to live in a foreign country.  These schools are not listed in any particular order, and are not a full list of the educational opportunities one can attend.  Some are associated with American schools.  Most have classes taught in English.  In a future post I would like to highlight Black Americans who have attended or currently attending a college abroad in pursuit of higher education, either at undergraduate or graduate level.

Do you know of a college or university abroad that is actively recruiting Americans? More specifically, Black Americans?  Are you a Black American who have attended college abroad and would like to be highlighted in a future post.  Please contact us at and share your Take A Leap story.
