As a South African graduate, I can highly recommend joining one of the top universities in the country (e.g. University of Pretoria, UCT etc.) where the area you would be working will be highly relevant backed by real insight. Furthermore, the region is continuously looking for international students to build diversity and an international vibe.
Costs can vary depending on the country you chose to study in but are generally cheaper compared to European cities. The cost of living is also comparatively low.
George recommends the following next steps:
- Get in touch with the university's international students department and get more feedback on your area of interest and the city, university, costs etc.
