For which module and where? Europe is a big place. The main advantage of modular is that you can do most or all of it part time or around a job. The sensible thing to do is get your PPL, hour building and ATPLs somewhere close to home and maybe go further afield to a bigger school when it comes to the IR and CPL.

Have you finished your hour building yet? If not, you still have the chance to save money by doing the IRR and CBIR as part of your hour building.

DFAS (Diamond flight academy Scandinavia) is very good school in your neighborhood. They are very responsive and keep to their word. Price-wise they are somewhere in the middle, but are one of few where you will not be able to find bad experience.

I am only missing about 10 hours of total time.
I do not have the night rating though, i cant understand why it is neccesary when one is working on an Instrument raiting but i see some schools require it.

I have an FAA PPL also, not sure if the night hours on there will count as a night qualification here in europe.

Thank you for that, i have heard of them and have friends who went there, they seem pretty good, only drawback for me is that they do not offer MCC + JOC and they are fully booked untill febuary 2020.

As long as you have 5 hours at night they will issue your CPL which includes the NR
