Whether you're feeling like it might be time for a career change, or you fancy expanding your knowledge, there are a ton of universities out there just waiting for your application. You could, of course, choose to live at home and commute — but with so many options out there, why would you?

Europe is highly regarded for its education system, as well as offering students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a new culture. And if you fancy taking a trip across the pond and studying there, Study.eu have ranked its countries from best to worst.

Over 30 European countries were ranked on a variety of factors, including the quality of the education system, affordability, quality of life, the openness of the job market to foreign students, and finally, personal safety.

Thanks to its top quality schools and public university system where students just pay administrative fees and get free tuition, Germany took the top spot. And although the UK ranked top in both the education and life and career rankings, it was one of the most expensive places to study — landing it in second place.

For the top 10, see below, or check out the full report on the Study.Eu website.
