International student, and a bit worried?

As an Egyptian undergraduate student, would Spain or Germany be a good place for me? I'm talking in terms or racism, safety, fair job opportunities, etc. No offence intended!

It is my first time to live abroad alone and I'm a little bit worried. Oh, also which city should I live in? I'm a night owl! :D I'm considering Madrid if I move to Spain, and Berlin if I move to Germany. But I read couple of Y!A posts regarding living in Berlin and some said that it is not a good choice.

And I'm agnostic atheist. Just for the whole religion conflict BS!

Germany would be better.

How are the living expenses in Germany?

An international student, besides the education expenses, will have to meet the monthly living expenses. This expense can be around 630 euros on average. One third of this is spent on house rent. This differs according to the place where you live

Can I work while am studying?

Earning money and studying at the same time is a part of everyday reality for many students in Germany. However, international students who do not come from EU or EEA countries are only allowed to work to a limited extent in Germany. In…

UK, Germany, or France -- which one do you recommend?

I would really love to study and live abroad. I'm from Chicago, Illinois, USA. I'm not sure if I want to go to the UK, Germany, or France. Which has better educational opportunities? What are the pros and cons of the three? Generally speaking, how are the people's attitudes toward foreigners? Any information, or personal experiences will be nice.

PS I speak German (intermediate level) and I'm learning French.

It depends largely on this: do you want to do a one-year (or one-semester) exchange or do your full education abroad? If you're simply looking for an exchange, I'd look at the specific programs (there are a LOT) and distinguish between those.

If you're an adventurous spirit and wish to foray into some seriously new waters (I'm one of those myself; I'm doing my Bachelor's in Germany, at Heidelberg)...I'm not familiar with France's system and only marginally with British higher education. BUT I can give you a complete rundown of Germany:
Tuition is incredible, anywhere between zero…

UK fails to make top 10 prosperous nations, another legacy of this Labour government?

Britain has failed to make the world’s top 10 of successful countries because of poor education and over regulation in an international survey of wealth and happiness
I can't get over the "poor education" bit since B-liar repeated the word education so many times and all the tax payer money that has obviously been wasted in that area!
Foxy why do you think I have my Finnish Citizenship now!

For the…

This isn't a league table of prosperity, as you say it's a table of international wealth and happiness. I can understand how wealth can be measured but happiness? How much happiness do I have? I have no idea.

I share some of your anxieties about what the Labour government's achieved in the education field, it does seem that we're knocking out a generation of sports coaches and creative artists who'll find it hard to make a living. On the plus side though schools do look very smart from the outside compared to when i went so some of the tax money has been spent on doing them up and…
