Best Countries for Education in Europe
According to the criteria used, the best countries for education in Europe are quite a heterogeneous group, containing Poland, the UK, Sweden, Estonia, Finland, and Germany.
Poland, Estonia, and Finland had great scores thanks to their excellent basic education. People from other countries, however, should know that public education in these countries is mostly (if not entirely) in the local idiom. Polish, Finnish, and Estonian are some of the most difficult languages in Europe to learn. It took me three years just to get the basics of one of them.
It helped Poland that living costs are lower there than in most European Union countries (although not everything is cheap in Poland, lettuce being just one example). Estonia, too, had an excellent result because of lower living costs.
The UK, Sweden, and Germany grabbed their spots in the top 10 for other reasons, like the sizable number of fine universities. But neither the UK, nor Germany nor Sweden had good results in the cost-of-living score, raising concerns for students without access to financial aid. These are expensive countries, after all.
The Best Country in the Americas for Education
Canada has a long history of being one of the best places in the world to study. Ontario, British Columbia, and Quebec are the three most popular provinces for foreign students to live in when they come to study in Canada. Canadian universities can be a good choice for people who want to study at one of the best universities in one of the world’s most developed countries.
The University of Toronto and McGill University are the two best-ranked Canadian schools. Other universities that are also good places to study are the Université de Montréal, the Université de Waterloo, and Western University.
They offer undergraduate degrees that can last three or four years, depending on how long it takes to get there and how long to study there. Depending on the type of postgraduate degree you choose and how long you take to finish, it can take anywhere from one to three years to finish.
