It is everyone's dream to Study and live in a foreign country. We all want to have the experience of living in an unknown place. Studying in another country may lead you to make your dreams come true. But the obstacles in the way to come up with success are massive tuition fees and other living expenses.

Well, not anymore for sure! Our understanding of education in a foreign country is we think only of the United States, UK and other popular European nations and ignore other options of the countries available to us where we can study free. We have made a list of those countries which offer free education or with nominal tuition fee to residents and international students.


Here are the top 5 countries that offer almost free of cost excellent education for international students:

1. Germany

Germany is at top in list as it offers higher education at minimal or no cost. Almost all the public universities in Germany do not charge any tuition fee but the administration fees. This administration fee is much less than in our country. The spoken language in Germany is English which makes it much easier to pursue higher education there. The normal admission fee is around €150-250 which is 20 to 30 thousand Pakistani rupees. To study in Germany you don’t need to know the German language. University of Bonn and university of Munich are some of the best universities in Germany.

2. Austria

All the Non EU/EEA students will have to pay a minimal tuition fee of around €730 per semester.  The 730 Euros are around 130000 Pakistani. This amount is not bad at all, if we consider the quality life there.  Austria is such a beautiful country with the rich culture of the former empire.

3. France

France might be an expensive destination for tourists, but not for international students. Higher education in France is free of cost. It is one of the most known places to study free of cost. Public universities in France don't charge tuition fees regardless of the nation you belong to. Grandes écoles, charges tuition fee, so if you want to study abroad for free it is better stick with a public university in France

Norway is another popular destination for free education. In Norway the graduate, post graduate and phD programs are entirely free of cost. From bachelors degree Norway offers complete free education even if you are not a resident of Norway.  But you need to learn the Norwegian language in order to get admission.
