  1. Hi everyone! I'm from the Philippines and am planning to apply for State Universities in LA for next year. My goal is to become a counselor/mental health therapist for people with mental health issues. After talking to a friend who is doing her MA in Social Work in NYU, she suggested I look into programs like social work/counseling/psychology but with a more clinical emphasis. I'm applying in LA because my family lives there. Does anyone have any suggestions which state schools have good programs? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
  2. You've been super helpful Evelyn. I'm going to look at Maastricht now. If I have any other questions on Netherlands, is it alright if I can send you a private message and ask what's the best way to get in touch with you? Thanks!
  3. Not bad! Compared to what you pay in the US. First I have to try to get in though. My grades from university are pretty good (A's) and I have extensive work experience in education and a certificate in counseling. I got my degree in the Philippines and I now work in the US. Is it competitive to apply in Maastricht?
  4. Thanks! This is awesome. I'll check it out. What's the cost of living like in Maastricht?
  5. I'm planning to apply for a masters in Counseling or Mental Health or any program related to those subjects in Germany or the Netherlands but I don't know which good universities offer these in English. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
  6. Hi, Newbie to the group here. Excited to be learning and sharing information with everyone. J It’s been my dream to go to grad school. I’d like to apply for a Master’s in Counseling in Europe for a fall program 2017 but don’t know which programs or which countries are good to study in. I’m looking for affordable good programs. Here’s a little bit of my background: I am originally from the Philippines but now work as a business trainer and life coach in Florida. I’ve been working in this position for two years. Before that, I was a university lecturer teaching English as a second language in China for 8 years. I worked as a college instructor in the Philippines and taught English Literature for a year. I have degrees in Applied Linguistics and Literature (GPA 89%- A- =3.7 US equivalent), Secondary Education (B+ =3.0) and Special Education ( A =4.0). Foundation of International Services in the US evaluated my transcripts and they found all degrees bachelor’s equivalent from a regionally accredited university or college in the United States. All my universities are all accredited and recognized internationally. I am also a licensed teacher. I have experience teaching children with autism and orphans who are emotionally disturbed. As a life coach, I had clients who had severe anxiety, depression and OCD. I would like to specialize in multicultural counseling and counsel minorities dealing with anxiety, depression and addiction. I just finished a Certificate of Counseling course from University of the West Scotland and am thinking of volunteering for a suicidal hotline to improve my chances of getting in. I’m not aiming to get into top tier schools though it would be nice. What I would like is a reasonably good school that teaches in English and is academically challenging. I have looked at universities in the US (but the costs were too astronomical) and then the UK but as an international student, many are out of my price range (I’m looking for USD12,000 a year max. I don't want to break the bank). I have heard Germany and other countries are free or subsidized. Can anyone suggest universities with a good affordable program that someone with my qualifications and background can get into? Which cities/countries can I start looking at? I could really use some advice. Hope someone can help. Thanks!
