France: Though France is an expensive country, but can be very reasonable place for higher education, especially if students plan to study in semi-urban cities like Grenoble. Grandes Ecoles graduate schools like “The Ecole Polytechnique” (for science and engineering) and the “Ecole Normale Superieure”(for humanities), are the French Universities where acceptance is usually accompanied by a full tution scholarship and cost of living-stipend.

Finland: It is another Nordic country where the facility for State Funds is available for higher education. This is also applicable for international degree students. However, for non-EU students some of the master’s degree programs are chargeable. For international students there are some free universities such as: Abo Akademi University, University of Helsinki, University of Jyvaskyla, and University of Eastern Finland.

But to study in U.S there aren’t any tuition free colleges. But they have a number of financial assistance options for international students. Some of the popular universities like MIT, Harvard, Stanford, and Yale provide full time scholarships to a handful of meritorious international students each year.
