Certain countries offer the right kind of packages to international students. They are highly student-friendly, offer a secure environment, engage with qualified faculties, ensure the development of research skills, and provide for a homely culture. Life as an international student is not easy and it takes a lot of time before one is able to fully adapt to the role. Choosing the right country for higher education, therefore, is a vital consideration.

While certain countries are an instant favorite among students, there are some which deserve as much limelight as the others. We are going to talk about all of them in this article.

Today, you will find out about the 5 countries in the world that provide the best conditions to develop as a student. So, let us take a look.

  1. Canada
    You might have thought of the United States, but it is the neighbor which takes the crown. When it comes to quality higher education offered with thriving cultural background, Canada must be mentioned. It is quite popular among the students of science and technology, offers an accommodating multicultural environment, and is not as expensive as other mainstream destinations of higher education. Moreover, linguistic problems are minimal; most Canadians speak English, and then there is also French which a lot of people here know. Also, if you are a sucker for natural scenic landscapes, then Canada it is. You shall not be disappointed in any way.
  2. Germany
    Germany has a long-standing reputation for its courses on technology, particularly automobile technology. Studying here is a wonderful option because Germany is one of the highly industrialized nations in the world offering a truck-load of educational and work opportunities. It does not matter whether you choose to study in a city university or a countryside university; the standards are top-notch wherever you are. While the cost of living may be challenging to many, the returns are absolutely fantastic. You get to study from the best in the continent, work with the best in their respective fields, and enjoy the best of the lifestyles in the continent.
  3. Australia
    Oceania is home to an array of good universities, and a chunk of these universities are located in Australia. Australia is undeniably a very popular destination among students, and the reasons for the same are myriad. Whether we talk about the consistently top-ranked universities in world rankings or the friendly local culture, the country is sure to give you a great time. Seasons flip over here, infrastructural facilities are spot-on, food is great, and people are super-friendly. Whichever university you get yourself admitted to, it is sure to have a strong research background that will help you hone your analytical skills. Yes, of course, it is not cheap living here, but there are tons of scholarships for international applicants so make sure you do a thorough check.
  4. Switzerland
    I don’t think I have to stress the aesthetically explosive landscapes in Switzerland. The world knows how beautiful this country is. In terms of standard of living, employment, research, and student friendliness, Switzerland has only a few parallels. Undoubtedly, it is a very expensive country to live in so you will most likely have to take a student loan or apply for a scholarship. However, rest assured that the investment will reap benefits in time. You will be educated in one of the safest countries in the world. Also, you will have the opportunity to study and work among the most highly rated professionals in the world. Everything here is world-class, and you know it.
  5. United States
    The United States of America witnesses the largest influx of international students every year. All the things you need from a country are here: superpower, check; high standard of living, check; highest rated universities, check; multicultural communities, check; student freedoms, check; high employment rate, check. There is one caveat, though, and it is that the country is expensive. Unless you are rich or on a scholarship, living here could be challenging. Tuition fees are very expensive so is the cost of living. However, all universities here offer a large number of scholarships to meritorious international applicants. Also, there are plentiful part-time working opportunities to support yourself.
