The United States is the second most-expensive country for international students behind Australia, according to a just-released report from HSBC’s Neil Brazil.

International students can expect to pay $35,705 a year, including tuition and living expenses, to study at a U.S. university. For an Ivy League school, the price tag can run in excess of $58,000.

Of the 13 countries and territories surveyed by HSBC, Germany was the least-expensive place for an international student to pursue a higher education. Tuition fees can be as low as $635 in Germany, compared to $25,000 or more a year in the U.S. and Australia.
