COUNTRIES OFFERING FREE EDUCATION
Earlier, it used to be a dream to get admission in countries offering free education to international students, but it is a reality now. Among them are Scandinavian countries and others where a tuition fee is nominal or even free for international students too. Germany features prominently among them as many of its public universities do not charge tuition fee. Other countries charging nominal tuition fees or offering education free of cost at their universities include Norway, Finland, Sweden, Czech Republic, Austria, France and Belgium, among others.
Germany offers free study for international students at all its public universities, even for those who are not from the EU or EEA. But non-EU/EEA students should obtain residence permit before entering Germany, and will need to finish their studies there. Germany has close to 300 public universities, which offer over 1,000 courses.
Some renowned public universities of Germany are Goethe University Frankfurt, Universität Hamburg, University of Cologne, University of Münster, University of Duisburg-Essen and Technical University of Munich, among others.
Indian and international student can avail free education in Norway’s public universities such as Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, University of Bergen and Nord University, etc.
