France improves in study abroad rankings, Germany remains number one

Feb 22, 2018

In the 2018 edition of the Study.EU Country Ranking, Germany once more ranks as the most attractive country for international students, followed by the United Kingdom and France.

Thirty European countries were ranked based on scores in three dimensions: EducationCost, and Life & Career. Germany’s offer of mostly tuition-free, world-class universities remains hard to outrank. But the United Kingdom caught up in points, only held back by its prohibitively high cost of living and tuition fees. France moved up ahead of the Netherlands, and Russia made its way into the top 5. Poland enters the top 10 with a much improved score for education.
