In addition to the many vocational training schools and correspondence courses, you can study in one of the 16 state owned or the 15 private institutions of higher education in Moldova. Having become a signatory to the Bologna process in 2005, many changes have been implemented in the Moldovan educational system so that the standard is at par with other European nations, and credits can be transferred with ease.
Studying in Moldova comes with numerous advantages. Besides the large variety of courses taught in English, the tuition fees are nominal when compared to the rest of Europe for the same standard of education. The certificates and credits are internationally recognized by organizations like WHO, UNESCO, and the European Council. Education in Moldova opens doors to job opportunities in all European Union countries, after completion of studies. Getting Moldovan visa is very easy, with no interviews involved. Finally, the chances of getting permanent residence improve significantly after successfully completing studies in Moldova.
For students under a time constraint, it is possible to participate in short term studies. Projects promoting democracy in Moldova, lasting from 2 to 16 weeks are open to qualified individuals. Students attend seminars, participate in study visits, conferences and carry out research on European policy developments relating to youth in Moldova. Students work four to six hours daily. Alternately, students can opt to study Russian or Romanian languages during their “gap year” or take the less intensive language courses during their summer vacations. Lastly, you can take vocational trainings, that can last from a few months to a couple of years.
