When we think about studying abroad, often we’re overwhelmed by the high price tag we assume comes with such opportunities. But did you know – some countries in the world offer a FREE education or very low fees, even for international students!
Here are some of our favorites, all with universities in the top 200 in the world:
Finland universities are fee-free so long as international students can cover their own living costs which makes it an attractive choice for studying abroad.
Universities in Germany are all free. The government funds the education of all its people and includes foreigners. Over 900 undergraduate and graduate degrees are offered in English which means non-German speakers can apply!
Sweden is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and its tuition fees are low cost, but not entirely free. It has almost 1000 programs at 35 universities that are taught in English, which means so long as you can speak English, you can get a degree!
Norway does not charge tuition fees for international students, and it is known for having small classes, with easily approachable professors. English courses are offered at many universities, making it a popular choice for many foreign students.
In France most public universities charge only about $200 USD, but if your parents are unemployed, you can study for free.
So before you rule out an international education due to financial constraints, investigate further and be sure to research scholarship opportunities too – you’d be surprised what’s available!
