Some colleges that host American students abroad include the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, Trinity college in Dublin, McGill University in Canada, University of Toulouse in France, University of Cologne in Germany and University of Melbourne in Australia. These colleges allow American students to enroll in their programs and, in some cases, may be cheaper than attending a college in the United States, notes Pacific Standard Magazine.
