Cheap courses are available at Harvard, Stanford and Colombia

Renowned North American universities such as Columbia, Harvard and Stanford have extension programs in various fields from political science, marketing and design to law to psychology.

Also, above all: it is much cheaper than postgraduate courses abroad and the applicant has to prove proficiency only in English. That is, there is no need to go through a complicated selection process that includes recommendation letters, articles, resume analysis and tests.

However, one important thing to keep in mind is that due to the Govit-19 epidemic, some of these extension courses are offered online. The content is still the same – the certificate is still valid – but the experience is different. So if you want to study face to face, it is necessary to check whether the lesson will be given face to face in the coming semesters.

After all, your dream of having a master’s degree from Harvard, studying with the best professors in the world, studying with colleagues from different countries and having a strong “stamp” on your curriculum is coming true.
