Tens of thousands of young Romanians are studying abroad. Besides these, many more want to have this chance, but money is a problem for them. Except for children from families of managers or successful entrepreneurs, very few young people with medium or low income can afford to sustain the cost of a year of study abroad. wall-street.ro shows you the destinations where they can study without money and with fees similar to those in Romania.
