Hello am Lawrence Dampare,am from Ghana and want to study outside

Hi my daughter is absolutely desperate to study international business studies with languages abroad ,especially USA or Spain as she excels in it !Have no idea where to start looking for her ! She's 16 now.Can you help please

Hi Karen, we have an FAQ - How to Study Abroad: FAQ - which will help you to get started but the main thing is finding a university that offers a program she wants to study. To find the leading universities around the world see the QS World University Rankings 2014/15 or our subject rankings (you can filter the results by country/region) and from there you should (or your daughter can) research each university of interest to see if they offer the right program and what the entry requirements are. We also have guides to study in the US and Spain, as well as an article about how much it costs to study in the US.

If low fees are a priority, I would say Spain is a better choice! Or, look into scholarship opportunities. Good luck to you both! Laura :)
