12 Most Expensive Countries for Foreign Students

Page 1 of 13

Spending a semester or two overseas can be one of the most enriching experiences a student can go through while in college. It helps broaden not only their academic horizon, but also their cultural boundaries. Nonetheless, while it is a highly rewarding experience, studying abroad can also become quite a costly endeavor.

Following, we would like to present you with a list we have compiled of the top 12 most expensive countries for foreign students. The countries were ranked according to three indicators: tuition costs, cost of living for one year, and the total cost for studying in that specific country.

Somewhat surprisingly, the costliest country for foreign students is neither the US nor the UK, which ranked 2nd and 3rd in our countdown, but Australia. Australia is more expensive for students both in terms of tuition fees and cost of living. The high costs associated with studying in Australia have reduced the number of international students who enroll in higher education schools in the Land Down Under. Nonetheless, amidst the high costs, a strong body of foreign students still exists in the country.

Tuition fees in the US are about the same as those in Australia, but the cost of living is significantly lower, placing it on the second place. The UK ranked third mainly because of its lower tuition fees. While the US has higher tuition fees than the UK, it does have a lower cost of living, which is one aspect foreign students should consider.

The most affordable country on our countdown is Spain, where the total cost for one year of studies for a foreigner is a little over $7,000. This might have something to do with the economic downturn that has hit the country in the past years.

Looking for a university abroad? Let’s take a look at our countdown.

Note: tuition fees vary from university to university and from program to program, so the values offered below represent an average of what a foreign student would pay to enroll in a foreign course.
