Hey OP, Though I didn't study overseas, I was considering it at one point and did up a financial projection of my spending if I were to take up an overseas degree. The cost of your overseas degree can really vary, depending on factors including: - Location of study - whether its in the US, UK, Australia, China, Japan etc.. - Length of study - Course of study - specialised courses (eg Medicine) tend to cost more - Lifestyle habits - do you want to live a frugal lifestyle or spend freely as you wish - Overseas exchange - exchange programs would incur more costs I was looking to enrol into a university in the UK, more specifically in London. Even by living a basic lifestyle, a 3-year degree there would easily cost approximately SGD$200-250k (~$130k for course fees, and the rest for living expenses such as accomodation, food, clothing, books, transport etcetc). It may differ based on location (For instance, London is known to have a high cost of living), so do your own due diligence! Funding typically comes from either scholarships, student loans or parents loan. As for whether it was "worth the money", it may be worthwhile for you to consider both tangible and intangible aspects, such as the connections made, type of exposure received etc. Weigh the costs and benefits before deciding which would be a better option for yourself. Hope it helps! Cheers!
