In Nigeria, the cost of education is steadily increasing, causing thousands of students to rethink their options. All hope is not lost, however, as these countries offer free varsity education.

We cannot deny the fact that the cost of education in Nigeria is steadily increasing. It has become financially challenging for thousands of Nigerians whose aim is attend and graduate from a reputable University in the country.

 If the only option you have left is to study abroad, then you might be facing an even bigger problem, unless you choose to study in any of the countries below.

1. Brazil:

Brazil’s universities charge registration fees,\ but they do not require regular tuition. Many of them also offer courses in English.

2. Germany:

Germany has 900 programs in English, and is eager to attract foreign students to tuition-free universities due to the country’s shortage of skilled workers.

5. Norway:

Norwegian students, including foreigners studying in the country, do not have to pay any college tuition. Be forewarned, however, of the harsh winters and high cost of living.
