Cheapest Countries to Study Abroad

Studying abroad is a dream come true for many Nigerians. The reason behind the dream is due to several factors. One of the factors is the stable academic calendar of foreign universities. Unlike Nigeria, where there is incessant ASUU Strike. Western universities usually have a program start date and Finish date. This means, from the beginning, you know when you will graduate. In Nigeria, the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) makes it difficult to know your graduation period. In all of this, Nigerians also consider the financial implications of studying abroad. This is why we have written a post on the Cheapest Countries to study Abroad.

Aside stable academic calendar, many Nigerian students want to study in western countries because of the standard of learning.

Low cost education doesn’t mean poor standard of living. Sometimes, the countries are very stable economically to the point that the government subsidize education for both local and international students.
