Speaking of Australians, these are some of the most welcoming and nicest people around, blame it on the generally good weather! Aussies are normally relaxed and don’t take life too seriously and believe me this will rub on you.

Italy is full of wonders and has the most UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other country. With 51 heritage sites, you will marvel at the rich culture and historical part of this European country.

 

You’ll be in the home of the best pizza in the world! Forget the pizza back home with pineapple. No pizza in the world beats the Italian pizza.

Something quite unique with studying in Italy is the ridiculously funny Italian graduation ritual. After the official graduation ceremony, the graduands then dress in goofy costumes such as hula skirts, funny hats, or even giant diapers.

 

They then sit on a bench where their family and friends heap eggs, ketchup and other food substances on them. They also sometimes go round the city singing and showing off their funny costumes as passersby dump more foodstuff on them.

 

 

Though France is an expensive country to live in, it is also one of the most student-friendly places. There are numerous discounts offered to students such as the le tarif jeune a student discount admission price for transportation and museums within France.

So yes football is big in Spain. You may not be a fan yet, but the fanfare and large viewing parties across various Spanish cities will have interested.  

 

Spaniards are very laid-back and relaxed people with a unique ability to simply stop and enjoy what life has to offer. This is reflected in their practice of the siesta, a rest period during the lunch hour.

 

Shops, businesses and schools will normally close down between 1 pm and 4 pm allowing people to go home, eat to their fill and take a nap. Nothing like a well-deserved break every day!

 

If you come from a country where everyone is always on the run keeping busy with life’s demands, you will appreciate this Spanish practice of just taking time to appreciate the little things in life and not get lost trying to keep up with time.

 

Spain has some of the most intriguing festivals all year round. Festivals such as the Fiesta de San Fermín (Running of the Bulls) or  Las Fallas de San José in Valencia are some of the amazing displays of culture you’ll ever see.

 

For an even more amusing experience be sure to attend the La Tomatina festival held every last Wednesday of August in Buñol. During these festivals, about 100,000 pounds of tomatoes are brought in from all over Spain and are used to perform the most epic food fight you’ll ever participate in.

There is never a dull moment in Argentina. There is always a cultural event or a festival happening in Argentina every single day and many of these are free.

 

The annual festivals are also quite the spectacle. There’s a huge selection of exciting festivals, all year round such as film festivals, gaucho and agricultural fairs, tango festivals, among others.

It doesn’t matter where your country of origin is, both German citizens and international students get to enjoy free tuition to allow them to pursue a degree of their choice. The Germans value education that much!

 

For private universities, the tuition fee will vary from one institution to another. It is also important to note that the free tuition applies to undergraduate courses only and does not include master’s and PhD courses, which are still cheaper compared to what other countries charge.

 

Money aside, you will love the uniqueness of Germany. The country is divided into regions and each region has it’s own unique culture. There is so much for you to do outside of school within these regions.

Germans are great at throwing impromptu house parties and will often find them enjoying food and their beer at home with friends. It is in such gatherings that you will learn the most about German culture.

 

The public transport in Germany is one of the most excellent one in the world. It is efficient, affordable, safe and fast.

 

The best part is that international students in Germany can use the public system free of charge once they pay the really low enrollment and admission taxes. Imagine that!

 

Looking to experience more diversity when studying abroad? Head down to South Africa.

 

Now that’s probably not what you thought right? But what better place to witness ethnic and cultural diversity than in Africa!

 

South Africa has become quite a popular study destination with international students in the recent years mostly because it is quite incredibly diverse with a super interesting history. Its history of apartheid and colonization makes it a unique place to observe how different cultures interact.

 

Once you arrive in South Africa you will be gladly surprised by how modern and developed the country is. You will be forgiven if you forget that you’re indeed in Africa. My quick advice; don’t form an opinion about South Africa until you step into the country.

There are so many opportunities to Volunteer while studying in South Africa.

 

You will have so much to explore right inside of South Africa!

 

For the sports lovers, South Africa is the home of rugby only rivalled by New Zealand. Speaking of New Zealand you better not mention it to a South African rugby fan, which is probably everyone!

Second, their culinary delights are out of this world. No matter how long you stay in Japan there will always be some exotic local cuisine that you’re yet to try.

 

The real deal foodie will be in food heaven in Japan. From peculiar dishes such as raw horse meat and puffer fish fugu, you will love experimenting with food.

 

For the non-foodies, you can find safer options such as sushi, ramen, yakitori, tempura, okonomiyaki, abura soba, monjyayaki, tsukemen and more that are still quite delicious.

 

Making friends in Japan is also very easy as they already have a system that promotes a sense of community. Schools in Japan have extracurriculars called “circles” to promote participation.
