Top 10 cheapest foreign study destinations based on cost of living
No.1: Canada - 
For students who need a regular fix of film and caffeine, Canada is the place to study. Cinema followed by a cup of coffee costsless than £10 ( £5.77 and £1.30 respectively), which slightly makes up for the cost of the £11,000 per year Canadian tution fees.
The QS World University Rankings 2011/2012 is drawn from surveys of over 33,000 global academics and 16,000 graduate employers and based on research teaching, employability and internationalisation
No.2: Germany
Germany offers one of the largest university systems in Europe, with more than 300 higher education institutions throughout the country. Tuition fees are capped at approximately £1,250, while a cup of coffee will set students back an average of £1.60.
German beer is not only strong and served in litre capacity steiners, it is also cheap by UK standards, costing approximately £2.18 a serving.
A trip to the cinema costs £7.30 and a bratwurst on the way home, £1.75
No.3: Australia
Coffee down under costs an average of £1.62 a cup, as does a bottle of water. For students looking for something slightly stronger, a beer costs approximately £2. It has traditionally been one of the world's most popular study destinations, thanks to the combination of sun, sand and strong universities, however, in recent times its popularity has waned due to tougher visa and migration rules and a strong Australian dollar which means tuition fees cost UK students in the region of £16,000 per annum
No.4: Italy
A cappuccino in Italy will set students back £1.65, and a macchiato even less. Tuition fees cost no more than £1,250, although cinema tickets are some of the most expensive in Europe, costing £10.50 - nearly the same price as a basic ticket to a Serie A football game which costs £13. This year, Italy's best university, the University of Bolgna came 183rd in global rankings.
No.5: Denmark
Danish universities are extremely international, as well as highly regarded, and free to EU students. Brits are known to adapt easily to life in Denmark, thanks to the fact that most Danes speak such good English. A cup of coffee costs approximately £1.80, a trip to the movies approximately £10, and a beer £1.20. Finding student acommodation is known to be tricky, so students are advised to start looking as early as possible
No.6: US 
Home to the highest number of universities in the world, six of which are in the top ten of global rankings, the US offers a multitude of options and variations for those choosing to study abroad. Living costs are somewhat cheaper than the UK, with coffee costing just under £2, cinema tickets approximately £5 and a small beer approximatley £1. Drawbacks, however, include student fees that rise to £26,000, high competition for places on popular courses and tough student visa requirements
No.7: Hong Kong
The small island nation offers some of Asia's best universities and offers courses on a semester basis as well as degree basis. While accommodation is notoriously expensive due to a shortage of space, coffee is cheaper than the UK, costing approximately £2, and cinema tickets cost roughly £7. Students fees, per year, are approximately £9,000
No.8: Finland
Despite having a reputation for being expensive, Finland does not charge EU students tuition fees and charges less than the UK for coffee, cinema tickets and a litre of milk. Nights out can get pricey at approximately £4.50 a beer, but that's a small price to pay for studying in a country renowned for its high quality of life, with one of the best education systems in the world.
No.9: UK
Although tuition fees are set to jump to £9,000 a year, students who study in the UK can take comfort in the fact that its universities are some of the most highly regarded in the world, with four of them making this year's top ten. Students pay on average £3.40 a pint, £2.50 a cup of coffee, £9 for a cinema ticket and 32p for a bottle of water - the lowest priced water in this top ten gallery.
No.10: Norway 
Norway is consistently rated as having one of the highest standards of living in the world and accordingly offers free healthcare to students staying longer than three months. Like Denmark it offers a wide range of English-language degrees free of charge to EU students, but is also notoriously expensive. A coffee costs and average of £3.20 and a beer £6.
