The British Council has completed a new survey, ranking countries in terms of how supportive they are of international students.  According to the BBC, Germany came out on top, largely because foreign students pay the same in tuition fees as home students.  Germany also teaches many degrees in English, reducing language barriers.

The top 6 (as reported by the BBC):

  • 1. Germany

  • 2. Australia

  • 3. UK

  • 4. China

  • 5. Malaysia

  • 6. US

This is a different sort of ranking than the others we've shared here in the past, which have typically tried to identify the "best" schools in terms of quality of education.
