    I just finished high school, and since my country has a very low standard of education I am searching for an university that is located outside here, more specifically Europe (personal reasons).
    The main problem is that, since I live in a third world country, my currency is weak and therefore I can't afford an expensive place neither an expensive living so my requirements would be basically 3 : Cheap (I can afford around 300-400 USD per month), that teaches in English and the possibility to work (I read that in some places if you have a student visa you cannot work).

    Any kind of help will be appreciated, I just started searching so any additional knowledge will be useful.

    i feel like my question is the same as "yo you guys know how to convert lead into gold? ^^^"


    I just realized that I posted in the wrong section, I believe that the correct one would be here https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=116

    Scandinavia - free for EU students (depending where you're from)
    I'm Swedish, my mom kept insisting that I went to KTH (Kungliga Tekniska Högskola), but I decided to stay in UK.
    Universities charge yearly, and to study in Sweden it's around 16k kr a year for NON-EU students. Resident visa is also not hard to obtain.
    Plus, you can study for 4 years, then work for a year and apply for Swedish citizenship since there aren't any official language requirements.

    Thank you VERY much for the reply! I'm Brazilian btw.
    I just converted and 16k Krona is around 1800 USD, but what about living costs? For example how much would it be for the living (like apartment + food).
    Do they teach in English in the Swedish Universities? Do you know any other besides the KTH? How is their admission exam?

    I'm looking forward to almost any foreign university, since studying in Europe will already be a enormous step in my actual life and future one ;D (Things here are rough sadly =/ )

    ^Link to help you search for programmes in taught in English in Europe

    Note: This site is for British people and therefore the tuition fees they list are for EU students

    (Brazil is not that bad... but I guess the political situation is rather strenuous)

    Btw: Public Universities in Germany are free even for international students and some of them even offer programmes taught in English depending on your major
