Europe offers over 30,000 international study programs. International students in Europe enjoy learning state of the art science and technology, as well as enjoy high living standards and multicultural environment. University Tuition Fees are not every where the same, also they are not the same for EU and Non-EU students.
Tuition Fees for EU and Non-EU students
EU students have the same rights when they move to another EU country. EU citizens are automatically entitled to study in other EU member states: they should not be paying higher tuition fees and they should be able to receive a residence permit. The same applies for EEA and Swiss students too.
Non-EU students are required to pay for tuition fees; however they apply for scholarships or funding to cover high tuition fees and other costs. In countries such as Austria, Germany and Netherlands, where the tuition fees are relatively low, the concept of scholarship does not exist. In any case, there are many ways that students can finance themselves.
