Affordable and low-budget countries can be classified based on low tuition fees, low accommodation and living expenses, or an overall balanced low-budget environment. Countries like Germany are well-known for their relatively low tuition fees; however, living expenses can average around 12,000 EUR yearly (as of 2022). On the other hand, countries like Malaysia offer more affordable living costs, where students can live off 300-400 USD per month. Though tuition fees in Malaysia might be slightly higher, the country boasts high-ranking universities.
For a well-balanced option, consider Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. These countries offer a good mix of affordable tuition fees and living expenses.
