Studying abroad is a big decision to make and finding the right study abroad destination involves meeting several criteria. One of the more frequent questions students and their families ask is, which countries are safe to study in?  

Be it the global pandemic or the general day-to-day life activities, safety is always a concern for students who plan to study abroad across the globe and although the concept of safety is relative, this post highlights some safe study abroad destinations.


Not only is Ireland one of the safest places to study abroad and it is also regularly voted as one of the friendliest countries. Boasting excellent education as well as a warm, friendly cosmopolitan environment with students from all over the world, this country is a regular on this list.



Consistently ranking high on all scales for being a peaceful, friendly, and safe country, Netherlands is a very popular education destination. It ranks in sixth place on the ‘Quality of life’ index, 21st on the Global Peace Index, has a very low crime rate, low racial discrimination, high gender equality, and very low unemployment rate.

 New Zealand

Ranking high on the Global Peace Index, New Zealand is highly popular for its excellent weather conditions, great higher education system with universities placing high in world rankings, picturesque habitats and friendly international student policies.



Ranked 13th place on the Global Peace Index, Australia, like New Zealand boasts excellent weather conditions and have managed to keep the number of COVID 19 cases to the barest minimum. Australia boasts world-class education, friendly policies for international students and a low crime rate.


Canada is one of the most peaceful countries on the planet, with a notoriously friendly population and vast stunning landscapes that showcase the beauty of North America. Ranked 6th on the Global Peace Index, Canada is also home to some of the most high-ranked institutions in the world.


Zurich, Geneva, and many other Swiss cities rank as high as the fifth position on the ‘Quality of life’ index while Switzerland as a whole ranks 10th on the Global Peace Index. From its snowy mountains to its safe neighbourhoods and notable universities, Switzerland is a top pick for international students.


Austria has cities like Vienna with a high ranking as one of the world’s most liveable cities. With such a high standard of living at modest cost, a welcoming and tolerant environment, an extremely low crime rate, an excellent higher education system and affordable tuition fees for foreign students, Austria definitely belongs on this list.

While every country has their own benefits and drawbacks, students need to remember that safety has different meanings to different people. Whereas some people might feel safe in a crowded city, others might prefer a quiet town.

So, it is important to figure out your own preferences, do some research about the country you plan to study in and their safety policies before making your decisions.
