Ours is a crowded world, with too many people coveting the few jobs there are to be had. There is nothing more important than a good education in a world like ours where the competition is cutthroat and careers can be made or broken by just a bad choice. So while everyone wants a good education for themselves, for those who want even better, getting an overseas education is the way to secure the best jobs and a comfortable life.
Students who study abroad have a better chance of securing jobs in reputable companies, get to meet a diverse group of people and experience a new culture, and have a great chance at securing citizenships in other countries and become pioneers. Now, would not that make you feel better about going abroad to study? An overseas education gives you all this and much more- there are people to meet and places to see and opportunities to be had.
But which countries offer the best courses and are also light on the pockets? We list the best five affordable countries for studying abroad-
Most of the Nordic countries in Europe like Sweden and Finland are quite affordable for overseas education. But Norway is one of the most alluring destinations for studying abroad not only because of its excellent standards of education, but also because of the fact that the education in the country is free for everyone, whether you are from within or outside the EU, at public universities, with the exception of a few specialized programs. Norway is also a stunningly beautiful country, and there are also English-taught programs at all study levels, plus a high number of locals proficient in English.
Mexico is one of the cheapest countries in the world for studying abroad, not only in terms of the tuition fees and other charges associated with the studies, but also because the cost of living and day to day expenses are quite affordable in the country.
