Inflation is pushing up accommodation, food, transport, and even tuition costs all around the world. This is causing increased pressure on international students already struggling to meet the ever growing financial demands of studying abroad.
A recent study by Holon IQ, estimates that total international education expenditure will reach $433 billion by 2030- up from $196 billion in 2019.
The astronomical increase in costs we are seeing may force many students dreaming of travelling overseas to stay at home.
Here are some great scholarship options in Europe that can help international students:
German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)
International students can study in Germany for free. Most public universities in Germany don’t charge tuition fees to international students. There are usually small administrative costs all students must pay, but these fees are typically a fraction of those paid in the US or the UK. Many German universities offer English language programmes.
The DAAD is the world's largest funding organisation for the international exchange of students and researchers. This is by far one of the best and most popular scholarships available for international students in Europe. DAAD offers a variety of scholarships for postgraduates to study and research in Germany. There are also many scholarship options for undergraduates.
The Eiffel Scholarship Programme
This scholarship programme was established by the French Foreign Ministry in order to help French higher education institutions attract top international students to Master's degrees and PhD programmes. Tuition fees are not covered by the Eiffel Program.
