It is no secret that the job market is competitive: there are too many applicants and not enough openings. It is perhaps a lesser known secret that the educational market is like this as well. In fact, getting into graduate schools in America is highly competitive. For this reason, some people are deciding to bypass the competition and get a dentistry degree, a veterinary degree, and a degree in physiotherapy overseas.

There are a variety of places you can go overseas to get the degree you seek. From places in Europe to places in Australia, getting an advanced degree overseas not only helps minimize the competition, as mentioned above, but is also gives you a chance to experience new things, new people, and have a once in a lifetime experience.

A degree in physiotherapy, a dentistry degree, and a veterinary degree obtained overseas give you the opportunity to remove yourself from your comfort zone, and to meet people and ways of thinking that might not coincide with yours. In the real world, this experience can be beneficial: as a professional, chances are you will not always see eye to eye with all of your clients. Learning to deal with people in a congenial manner is an invaluable tool.

Some students fret over degrees abroad. They worry, for instance, that getting a veterinary degree in Germany won't allow them to practice in the United States. This is actually a common misconception. As long as you obtain your veterinary degree from a university or college that is internationally recognized (they should be able to tell you if they are) you can sit for US board exams. Once you pass these boards, you are allowed to practice in the United States. A dentistry degree and a degree in physiotherapy works the same way. After receiving your degree, you become eligible to take the board exams in a variety of nations.

If you opt to travel overseas for your advanced degree, you may be eligible for financial aide or some other kind of government assistance. A good resource for this and scholarships is the Internet, the study abroad program at your undergraduate university, and the overseas school you are hoping to apply to.

Obtaining a graduate degree overseas is a smart and reasonable idea. If the US graduate school competition is too much for you, consider going elsewhere. Remember, there's a whole wide world out there.
