Free education refers to education that is funded through taxation rather than tuition fees. Although primary school and other comprehensive or compulsory education is free in many countries, all education is mostly free in the Nordic and Scandinavian countries. In Norway and Finland, no fees apply for foreign students enrolling at a university, although they may not be eligible for a monthly study allowance and a loan.

Sweden, until recently, provided free education to foreign students but changes have been introduced to charge fees to foreign students. Denmark also has universal free education, and provides a monthly allowance, the "Statens Uddannelsesstøtte" or "SU", to students over 18 years of age. Greece and Argentina provide free education at all levels, including college and university.

In Brazil, free education is offered by the Ministry of Education. The Ministry offers scholarships for graduate degrees, masters, doctoral and post-doctoral for Brazilians and immigrants who have Brazilian citizenship. The best universities and research centers are public institutions, financed by either the local state or the federal government.

In Sri Lanka, free education is provided by the government at different levels. Government funded schools such as national schools, provincial schools and primary and secondary education is free, while assisted schools and semi-governmental schools provided the same at subsidized rates. At the university level, the state universities provide undergraduate courses free, however this totals only about 10% for those qualified for university entrance. Grants and scholarships are provided for a limited number as study allowances.

Higher education was free in The UK until fees were introduced in 2001. Initially pegged at £1000 per year, the levels which institutions can charge has recently been raised to a maximum of £9,000 per year. These charges do not apply to students in Scotland however.

There are a few countries which offer free education. The few names are;

Denmark
Sweden
Finland
Germany

The first step is to find the colleges and universities in these countries and apply for some degree. Then you apply for visa on their invitation. You can't get a good job while you studying there. You have to do part time work. Macdonlad is the best option in these countries to earn.

There is no such thing as free higher education; but if I have to mention a next-to-free, then; germany, finland, denmark and sweden. Sweden, however is planning to charge for education beginning in 2010. Please, remark that students will have to pay enormous amounts of money in forms of living expenses, health insurances..etc. And in those so called free countries it costs more than the countries who actually charge. If you plan to work while study in these countries, I say, stop dreaming and get real. Good luck however.
