10 of The Best Places to Study Abroad in 2019 And After

Wait a second!

How can you refer to some places, the best places to study abroad?

Is it best because of a school's best world rankings? Best because of a city's best living standards?

Or is it best near you because of the location, landscapes or the history of your study destination?

And what if some places have all the above-stated qualities together in them?

Top 10 Best Places to Study Abroad Around the World

Well, right here we have the top ten of such places that are best for the students to study abroad because..

As an institute, they are matchless. As a location, it's mesmerizing. And as a city, it is most liveable, affordable, and desirable.

The courses offered, the faculty, the area, and the people around, everything is said to be the best. Most of all, the students are found to have a huge desire for them.

This and everything makes these places the heavens on the earth for the students.

10. Seoul National University – Seoul, South Korea.

SNU lies in the midst of the Seoul, a metropolitan city and the capital of South Korea.


The first national university of South Korea built in 1946. It is considered one of the first research center university of South Korea.

Now they have a largest faculty team working for the University. Growing number of colleges, graduate and professional schools are also working under SNU.

They also have a huge record of graduate and undergraduate alumnus, who have studied. And still studying (higher education) on their campus.

The university has wide relations with other educational centers worldwide.

It allows the international students to study at their campus as an exchange student for a semester or 2. OR, on the other hand, you can directly apply for a degree at SNU as a foreign student also.

The only difference occurs is the fees that you pay. As an exchange student you pay your tuition and other fees to your home university but study at SNU campus. But as an international student you pay your dues directly to the SNU.

Please refer to Office of International Affairs for more information or apply here.


South Korea is amazing as a country and Seoul is said to be the hub of Korean culture and wonders.

It is said a man gets one year old right after taking birth on Korean land. And a year further right after falling the New Year.

No matter if you were born in December and it is January now. You are 2 years old in Korea though technically you should be just a one-month-old infant. Weird ha!

Food is cheap. But beware, they can serve you dogs as a meet in restaurants.

Transportation fare is almost negligible. People are friendly, loving, and open. And they have no problem in sharing their relationship in public. They can often hug, kiss and share the likeness in public.


The Internet is free and everywhere in Seoul. You'll rarely find that your device is receiving some Wifi signals and it is a protected network.

9. Bar-Ilan University – Ramat Gan, Tel Aviv Israel.

Tel Aviv City

Located in an important district of Ramat Gan, in one of an important city of Tel Aviv, Israel.


Just like many others, Bar-Ilan is yet another public research university of Israel. Their area of expertise is researching on building leadership for the Jewish Nation.

Don’t panic. Bar-Ilan also invites other religious or secular students to learn with them. And within their award winning campus.

But it is always a good idea to join in them if you have any level of interest in Jewish culture or Judaism. As they ask their students (mostly or only for Jews) to be a part of Judaism learning classes. And learn at least the basics of the religion or more if want.

Bar Ilan opens its boundaries to international students as an exchange student. As well as an internationally admitted student in the University. They normally call them newly immigrant students or new immigrants only.

Beside conventional studies, Bar Ilan also invites tourists to their special courses. These short courses are to provide an oppertunity to learn in a Jewish environment... take part in there and learn in a Jewish environment.

Mechana is a popular short-term program, being offered in summer breaks. It is a kind of complete language immersion programs.


Tel Aviv is a contemporary city in Israel and is believed to be the first modern Jewish city.

It’s so rare that you get up on mornings and won’t meet the sun over there. The sun shines on this part of the earth on almost 300 annual days that are noticed. You can have lots of chances to enjoy outdoor or on beaches (that are graded among top ten best beaches in the world).

You’ll find the best Japanese restaurants there. Coffees and drinks are also available 24/7.


One quote that I’m liking the most about Bar Ilan is:

“At Bar-Ilan University we provide our students with “wings and roots” – the wings to ‘fly’ academically, scientifically – to push back new boundaries of knowledge, learn new things, explore new intellectual universes; and the roots to ‘bind’ them to this earth, to ensure they fulfill their moral and ethical obligations, and become better people and better Jews.”

8. Mother and Teacher Pontifical Catholic University

Dominican Republic City

PUCMM is situated in Santiago de los Caballeros. Santiago de los Caballeros or Santiago is a beautiful city of Dominican Republic.


PUCMM is basically a private sector community college-University established in 1962.

As an institute, the core of this University is to provide higher education beyond any basis. Without involving a religion, race, beliefs or social class values in it.

Their aim is to face scientific problems as a human and find their solutions for the humans.

PUCMM also facilitates the international students in achieving their academic objectives. And that is subject to their educational and cultural values.

They have short-term international experience programs for the interested students. To dive into their culture, to live with their host families. And to integrate Santiago’s cultural richness with theirs.


A Spanish immersion program can help you in learning Spanish as your second language. Learning living in a Spanish-speaking country is a most effective way of learning Spanish.

And PUCMM at Santiago is not less than an amazing idea. You better weigh it.

This country has also given shelter to the ancient churches of the world. One of the most ancient is the Basilica Cathedral of Santa María la Menor. Says, this 500 years old church has roots to the greatest explorer of all the time, Columbus. This must mean a lot to any other explorer (student), ain’t that?

Besides, this beautiful ancient land has so much to offer to you. And you’ll realize it soon after you clap on landing (It’s a Dominican Law to clap on landing) over there.


The beautiful campus of PUCMM covering the wide area of 950,000 m2 consists of marvelous gardens. The amazing green paths, make it a more attractive & suitable place for learning.

7. Tohoku University – Sendai, Japan.

Sendai City

Tohoku is placed among the greenest, the city of trees, Sendai (Miyagi Prefecture, Japan.)


Tohoku is weighed as Japan’s pioneer in accepting female students. It wasn't just possible before this. None of a female student was admitted in any Japanese University before 1913. The year when Tohoku took that initiative.

And now it is the home of researchers, scholars, professors and students. Who are treated as individuals and without the gender discrepancies.

Whether or you are pursuing Tohoku as an exchange student or as an international student. There are multiple courses for you ranging from one to two semesters at Tohoku.

The University offers non-degree programs of different durations usually one year long. They have also summer abroad programs for their partner university students.

Those of you people who love fox, there’s fox village you must go and visit. It is a huge place filled with foxes all around. I’m sure you’d like to cuddle with some beautiful fox or click a selfie with it.

Another notable mark is ‘the Ruins of Sendai Castle’, also known as Aoba Castle. It was built in 1602 and functioned till 1875. Must it be the greatest attraction for the history students?

They have appealing downtown shopping malls, museums, and attractive yet peaceful mediatheques.

Though a little expensive, but their fast moving trains are always on the time. The average delay is of 10 to 20 seconds which is the least number in the world.

Vending machines are also abundant throughout the city.


Rich cultural activities and festivals of Japan that are an amazing experience to be a part of them.

A chance to meet and live with the old people that are enjoying a healthy life at the age of hundred or more.

Possibly going to visit in some of the world heritage sites of Japan.

The Wellington waterfront in another attraction that is going to mesmerize you.

The people are friendly and cooperating.


The prettiest capital of the prettiest country. Where you don’t have to walk for miles and you’ll meet someone who is actually a celebrity. Either a Hollywood celeb or a locally famous person.

The music is in the air which blows quite fast sometimes. So, be careful, or you could happen to change your plan to come back home.
