A complete list of cheapest or affordable colleges and universities abroad

Q: Why talk about affordable or least expensive colleges and universities for your abroad studies?

A: Because staying abroad away from your family and loved ones is not a joke. Study abroad students who come from sound financial background may find it sometimes difficult making their ends meet while staying in a foreign land. A few amongst those students end up taking huge loans or any sort of financial assistance under pressure, which they find difficult to repay after their graduation.

Do you recognise how student loan debt can be a serious issue! Please understand that loan repayments are based on how much money you earn after you complete your degree, not on how much you borrowed before joining a college or university. Normally, the actual loan money includes both tuition fee and maintenance (books, travel, equipment, domestic bills, accommodation, etc) fee.

So now we come back to the original discussion, that is, the ultimate list of least expensive or cheapest colleges and universities abroad (in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the USA and the UK) for your higher studies. Please note down all details and start applying. Our advisors are here to help you.

The bottom line!

Studying abroad could be stressful – well, with careful planning it is possible to save yourself from getting into debts such as by applying for bursaries, fee waivers or scholarships; cutting down your expenses; avoiding over use of your credit card(s); avoiding borrowing money from friends; working part-time; using coupons and vouchers, purchasing second-hand textbooks (maybe from your seniors); shopping less etc. Take advice from your family and dear ones who will help you plan your budget (based on expenses) and get best bank account details (considering the interest rate).

Let’s keep talking so that we can know your thoughts! Talk to our advisors to find the best option for your career. Don’t just choose a university abroad because you like its city life or because its campus life sounds cool; think on various aspects. It is imperative that when you study abroad, you need to consider all possible costs involved along with your tuition cost.

Plan well ahead and apply soon!
