There are many countries in the world where a student can study for free or for a very affordable amount. Many of such countries are given below

 Germany:  In 2016 Germany was the third most popular destination among international students in the world. German university degrees are highly respected by employers worldwide. There is no tuition fee or very low tuition fee in most of the public universities. Just a small nominal university fee is charged, of around €150-250 to cover administration costs plus a budget for living cost which comes around € 9000 per annum. The majority of free programs are taught in native language but many universities offer a program in English in both UG as well as PG level. Alternatively, a student can also attend a preparatory school to improve German language skills before beginning degree, but this student will have to pay for.

France: International students may be astonished to hear that they can also study in France for free (or, at a very low cost), regardless of their nationality. Public University in France charges around €200 per year at UG level to cover the administration cost. Additional charges can bring this price up, particularly for more specialized programs such as medicine and engineering, but not dramatically. Like Germany, majority of free programs are taught in French.

Spain: International students are able to study in Spain for between €680 and €1,400 per year at public institutions. Fees are charged on a per-credit basis and can be higher at the graduate level. To live in Spain you should expect to spend between €10,800 and €13,200 a year in living costs.  

Italy: Public universities in Italy charge from €850 to €2500 per annum however private universities charges a very high tuition fee.

Norway: Regardless of nationality university study is free for all the students for any level. The majority of undergraduate programs are taught only in Norwegian, and international students need to demonstrate proof of proficiency in Norwegian in order to study at this level. At master’s and Ph.D. level, English language programs are far more common and free tuition still applies.

Sweden: Study is free for EU/EEA students. Other nationality students pay the full tuition fee for UG and PG programs. Ph.D. programs are free and may be available with stipends. Tuition fee in Sweden may be between SEK 80,000 and SEK 140,000 (€9000 to €14000) per annum.
