Top 5 Countries Where Tuition Fees is Free in 2020

If you fail to qualify for fully-funded university scholarships, consider enrolling in universities that are tuition free or charge low tuition fees or those offering tuition fee waivers. Countries like Norway, Austria, GermanyFinland, and Sweden offer different types of free/low tuition schemes and tuition waivers for international students.

This applies to all levels, including undergraduate studies, Masters programmes and Ph.D. programmes. However, students will have to pay a semester fee of NOK 300-600 each semester.

Note that some state universities and university colleges may have tuition fees for a few specialized programmes which are typically at the Masters level.  Most private institutions have tuition fees for all their programmes and courses. But the fees are usually significantly lower than those of comparable studies in most other countries. Also, foreign students don’t pay higher tuition fees than Norwegian students.

Cost of Studying in Norway: You should take into consideration that living expenses in Norway are higher than in many other countries.  Living expenses would amount to NOK 90,000-100,000 per year.
Tuition Free Universities in Austria

If you are an non-EU/EEA student, federal/public universities in Austria only charge about 726.72 Euros per semester for tuition fees plus 20.20 Euros per semester for student union membership fee “ÖH-Beitrag” and the student accident insurance fee.

An exemption from paying tuition fees or a full/partial refund of the tuition fees is possible in special cases (e.g. for holders of certain scholarships, for participants in exchange programmes and university partnerships, for students from certain countries). Further information is available at the website of the university directly.

Cost of Studying in Austria: The cost of living for students in Austria is approximately 800 Euros per month which covers accommodation, food, and personal expenses.

Tuition Free Universities in Germany

Currently, the federal state of Baden-Württemberg is charging tuition fees (for Bachelor’s, Master’s, Diplom and state examination degree programmes) of €1,500 per semester for non-EU citizens.

Unlike undergraduate studies, most Master’s studies in Germany come with tuition fees, but they’re not as high as in other countries.

On the other hand, doctoral studies at German universities are in principle free.   PhD students are charged tuition only after completing their first six semesters but they are  required to pay a semester contribution of approximately 150-200 euros per semester.  Doctoral students  usually work on a research project (paid PhD position) or receive a scholarship.

Cost of Studying in Germany: On average, German students spend about 500-800 Euros for accommodation, transport, food, and miscellaneous expenses.
