With some 20 million citizens, over in the Indian Ocean you can find Sri Lanka. Not only does this country offer its inhabitants free universal healthcare, but it’s also one of the countries in the region that have the highest life expectancy. There are many public hospitals in the country and they’re all funded by the government.

In Sri Lanka, education is a fundamental right as decreed by the country’s constitution. With one of the highest literacy rates in the world, Sri Lanka offers free undergraduate education. The playing field is quite competitive, but that doesn’t deter students looking to learn.
