List of Tuition Free Universities in Europe – Sweden, Norway & Finland

A number of Universities and colleges in Europe offer tuition free universities admission for international students to study in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Germany and Denmark. However, the tuition-free policy has changed in some countries the past few years, which have resulted to the discontinuation of tuition-free Universities in such countries.

For tuition-free education in Sweden, the Swedish Government passed a bill in 2011 to introduce Tuition and admission Fees for non-EU/International Students, to be compensated with a generous number of scholarships based on students need and academic merit.

Below are tuition free universities for Undergraduate Bachelors or Postgraduate Masters Degree.
