Tuition free universities in Finland & Germany

It might interest you to know that universities in some parts of  Europe  are operating tuition free. Yes, these schools don’t charge a dime for tuition, you only have to take care of your living expenses like feeding, transportation, clothing, rent etc. Education in these countries are funded by the government, so students are exempted from fee payment. These countries are Finland and Germany. Universities in Finland are totally free, while some universities in Germany have started imposing little tuition. I have written articles about education in Finland, and Germany, cost of living and how to apply in my previous posts, so check the archive section of this blog to get these articles. Today, I’m going to post the list of these universities, so you can get more information and start your application on time.
