Computer Programming Degrees Abroad

As the world continues to digitalize many essential services and media heading into the 21st century, computer programming has become one of the most valuable skillsets than an individual can possess in today’s job market. Earning your computer programming degree abroad is the opportunity to learn the fundamental tenets behind this broadly applicable discipline, while embarking on quite an adventure travelling throughout the non-virtual world as well. The only question is, where will you go?

Why Earn Your Degree Abroad

Like any skill, computer programming requires hours upon hours of training and practice to develop. While the prospect of honing this ability in the coziness of your home country may seem comforting, earning a degree abroad in computer science will open you up to a whole new world of inspiration and opportunity. The human potential within the computing world is, as far as we know, limitless; if you are ready to push the boundaries by travelling while young, and disrupt the monotony of routine, then your own potential can match it.

Locations

While this may not have been true even two decades ago, in today’s rapidly digitizing global community, you can earn your degree abroad in computer programming pretty much anywhere. Most major universities around the world will offer a computer programming degree track of one type or another, so here are a few questions you should ask yourself before applying.

First, where are the best programs located? Some of the most prestigious countries in the world for a computer programming degree abroad include England, Australia, and China. These countries, among others, have the resources and knowledge base to offer top-notch research institutions where the science of computer programming is being advanced every day.

Second, should I be concerned about the language barrier? The simple answer is yes, probably. Most countries utilize their national language as the medium of education, meaning that you will be expected to be adept in order to pursue a computer programming degree abroad. Countries such as Germany or Spain can be great places to learn the skill, but you better get on top of your language studies today!

Lastly, does it matter if the country is developed or developing? No, not really. Developing nations ranging all the way from India to Thailand to Mexico can offer just as effective an education than in a post-industrial country such as the United States. Why not earn your computer programming degree abroad somewhere that will challenge you to see the world differently?

Jobs & Positions

The world of computer programming is vast, complex, and constantly changing; as goes the industry, so goes the degree track to getting your foot in the door. Employers and startups are constantly seeking out new ways of training and certifying computer programmers, and it is possible to learn the skill in many different mediums. These range from an intensive tech “boot camp” training course lasting only a few months, to an associate’s degree lasting two years, to a traditional bachelor’s degree lasting four.

Between these options, employers tend to value a four-year undergraduate degree the most, as it shows you have established under you a broad fundamental base of knowledge in the field. If you choose to pursue your computer programming degree abroad by this conventional path, then many universities will require you to take courses in an array of related fields such as mathematics, computer science, information technology, and electrical engineering.

Many universities around the world will, instead of offering a computer programming degree abroad specifically, incorporate this certification into a broader degree in a related field such as computer science. While many computer programmers choose to hit the job market after they earn their basic degree, you can also choose to pursue a Master’s or PhD in the field if you are especially interested in research and/or teaching.

Benefits & Challenges

Expand. Computer programming requires a tremendous degree of creativity, and travelling to earn your degree abroad is the perfect opportunity to break out of your shell and begin to see the world in new ways. It is a growth experience like few others.

Learn. By choosing to earn your computer science degree abroad in a different country, you will not only be learning a new technical skillset; uprooting from home and placing yourself in a foreign situation will teach you a lot about the world beyond computing as well.

Connect. Computer programming is a language which transcends traditional barriers of communication. Living in a different cultural context and working alongside peers from around the world will drive this lesson home, as you take the lead in our emerging era of global connectivity.

Earning a degree abroad in computer programming is a leap of confidence, where the benefits far outweigh the downsides. This is a way to crystallize your worldview in a way which will never cease to inspire you to create.
