“Budget-friendly” destinations gaining momentum in Europe

Demand for lower-cost and budget-friendly destinations are gaining strong momentum in Europe as international students look to tighten their belts, new data from Studyportals suggests.

The star of the show is Italy, which has seen absolute demand rise by a staggering 45% in the last 12 months.

Portugal is also seeing a big rise, with just under 29%, as is Poland, with just over 28%.

“Italy has been gaining momentum as a more budget-friendly destination for students,” Cara Skikne, Studyportals senior editor told The PIE News.

“This, together with the high quality of education and good scholarship programs has meant rising student demand.

“The cost of studying and living in Italy is low, especially in smaller cities – universities are offering support to new students in finding accommodation, giving scholarships, waiving tuition fees, among others measures,” Skikne explained.
