- Jun 04, 2018
Kuwait is known to be one of the survival countries that offer immense educational facilities to the international students. After the invasion by Iraq in the early 90s, the small size country has come to fame. The state has managed to return to health and structured best living standards in the whole Middle East. It incorporates a liberal lifestyle, especially surrounding the areas of Kuwait city.
Again, the graduate programs in the country give a good time to the students to place themselves in an excellent historical Arab nation with a revolutionary history of evolvement and forbearance.
If you are planning to attempt your graduate studies in Kuwait, you have to acquire the knowledge of the contemporary life in the country.
The cost of living comes first in every discussion as the money and its value can cater the basic and extra demands of life. Food, shelter, clothes, schooling, college education, medication, etc. are not completely free. Let me tell you that like every place, cost of living depend on the lifestyle that one chooses.
In Kuwait, the petrol and the domestic goods are incredibly affordable, whereas the electronics and the imported goods are expensive in comparison.

But, you may not get the same freedom in Kuwait as it is a Muslim dominated country. You have to dress modestly. Be careful about the social constraints like shutting down of the shops for prayers. The inhabitants of Kuwait are friendly and compassionate. There is no probable possibility of the clashes regarding accepting foreign students.
