For d "non-popular destination"s, i feel tat France is a gud place 2 study. Education in France is heavily subsides by d government, d french government pay a portion of ur monthly rent n thr r university restaurants which serve a whole meal for jz 3.05 €. ( a price tat cn't find in any resto in France or UK). If u learn 2 cook, u cn save evn more. However, it's vry hard 2 find uni tat offer degree courses in english bt i hv seen a lot of masters n phd courses in english.
Furthermore, in a recent survey, Paris beat London 2 b the no 1 student destination.
France is just one of the examples. Scandinavia, Germany and Switzerland have similar offerings. So if you don't think you can live with the French way of doing things, go some place else in Europe.
I must confirm what boyzoo said. It's really affordable to live in France. The government pays about 170 euros a mth for your rent. As a student and a youth, you get special discounts for museums, train and bus tickets and 3-euro meals at student cafeterias. They serve really good meals too.
So if you share an apartment, eat at student cafes and cook, you can get by easily for 300-500 euros a month. RM1200-2000 a month. Something like in SG but with the added benefit of cheap bordeaux wines and goat cheese.
After finish studying.....then should work elsewhere lah. France must pay very high tax.
