Germany’s capital is one of the most affordable cities for students, making it a budget friendly alternative to Paris or London. Public universities do not charge tuition fees for local and international students, and there is also a thriving start-up culture in the city. Outside of class, Berlin is famous for its nightlife and is in the heart of Europe, making it easy to travel.
Often overlooked when compared to Singapore, Bangkok or Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur has a much lower cost of living than the rest of the emerging economies of the region.

Study abroaders will appreciate the large international student community.
