Fantastic road to a BSc degree
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It was amazing living away from home for three years. It makes you grow mentally, you become very autonomous. I also did two exchange semesters in two other european countries and that too made me grow and learn so much. I hope my masters will be just as amazing .

All the way from Sri Lanka to Europe!

MastersPortal was my access to the global education information as I found my desired masters degree program in my preferred country away from home. Today I'm a proud masters student at FH Upper Austria living my dream. A big thank to MastersPortal for being the true source of information that helped me to start my academics journey in Europe.
