The educational system of the Norwegians is being administered by the Norwegian Universities and College Admission Service. There are many institutions of higher learning in Norway, sixteen of them operate as private colleges, eight of them being universities, and twenty of them operate as state university colleges. Universities in Norway deliver standard educational programs plus other value-added services to their foreign and national students who go there to study each year as their government ensures that their students tuition fee is taken care of through the money generated from taxpayers, though students from other European countries benefit from these services more than students from non European countries. Though tuition fee is free, one will still pay for accommodation and cost of living and that may be relatively high particularly for non-European students, as Norway is globally regarded as one of the most expensive countries of the world.
Sweden was one of the first countries to offer free education to all students both local and foreign regardless of where they came from. This however changed in the year 2010 when their Parliament promulgated a law that changed this and made it compulsory for international students from non European countries to pay both tuition and application fees. When the situation changed, a lot of new scholarship schemes emerged which were made available for students. So if you are a student from the non-European countries, tuition fee for an academic year ranges from eight thousand three hundred to twenty thousand eight hundred euro, in addition to other charges for accommodation and cost of living.
Germany is also another country among the European countries delivering free education to undergraduate students regardless of their nationality. Both European students and non-European students are treated alike. Germany remains one of the most coveted countries among the European countries as an international study abroad destination.

Those value-added services were however brought to an end in 2017 for non European students specifically for courses taught with the English language. Though students from European countries continue to enjoy the free educational services, non European students pay tuition fee ranging from five thousand to twenty thousand euro each academic year including their accommodation and cost of living.
