Generic Passport on a World of MoneyTwo Italian universities are the most affordable for UK students to study according to a new cost calculator.

 

The tool created by currency company FairFX looks at the top 200 universities across 27 countries for affordability.

 

Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa and Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna ranked in the top two spots mainly because of scholarships that reduce living costs to zero, although only for a select few applicants.

 

However, Italy does not feature in the list of most affordable countries. South Africa is the cheapest place to study outside Europe, followed by Taiwan.

 

Germany ranks well with six universities from the country featuring in the top 10. But it is Sweden’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology that pulls ahead of them all as the third most affordable university.

 

This is the full top 10 best value universities for UK students to study in.
