Matador Network notes that several countries offer a free college education not just to their citizens, but also to foreign students. Germany is one of them; you’ll have to learn German if you want to go to school there, but learning a new language is good for you and German happens to be the most profitable language to learn.
If you don’t want to learn German, though, Matador Network says you have other options:
Finland doesn’t have tuition fees, and many of their courses are in English. Public universities in France only cost around $200, and Sweden offers PhDs for free. Norway also covers tuition of foreigners, as does Slovenia. And Brazil only charges small registration fees, though it has fewer programs in English.
American students who not only want to get an affordable education but also want to immerse themselves in another culture, then, maybe ought to think less about expensive study abroad programs and more about studying in a country that offers affordable tuition.
