Can I afford to study abroad?
Financially speaking, the costs can vary greatly depending on your home school, where you study abroad, and the type of program in which you enroll. Just like a pricey college education, you may find that an expensive program is worth the bill.
The cost of studying abroad will largely depend on where you go. Places with a lower cost of living and spots that are less popular tourist destinations are obviously going to be cheaper. Sites in some regions of Central and South America, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Western Asia often have low room and board costs. Tuition is also typically cheaper in locations that are less-commonly traveled. On the other hand, many regions of Western Europe, Australia, and East Asia are as expensive as—and occasionally more expensive than—schools in the US. The cost of living in England, for instance, is greater than in most of the world.
