Free Tuition for International Students Overseas – Or Nearly Free

Free Tuition for International Students Overseas – Or Nearly Free

The United States has one of the most successful higher education systems in the world. However, the cost of a good education in America is often beyond the reach of many young Americans. College tuition fees have been rising in the US exponentially every year.  The cost of annual tuition fees in the U.S. range from $9,700 a year for some public institutions up to $65,000 a year for private colleges and universities.  For some schools, these costs do not include the costs of room and board while attending school.

Fortunately, there are other options for those seeking a quality education without having to incur burdensome student loan debt. There are several countries throughout the world offering students an excellent college or university education at a fraction of the cost that would be incurred in America. In fact, many of the available degree programs are FREE or almost free. Moreover, nearly all of the schools offer undergraduate and postgraduate programs entirely in English.

Tuition rates have always been historically low in Europe and other areas around the world. For example, Germany, Norway, France and Finland all offer very economical college costs for students.  In fact, some countries have scrapped tuition fees entirely for both residents as well as international students.
