We suspect this will be a growing trend as universities use technology to further their reach and empower individuals all over the world to succeed academically.
You can study for free at many universities across Europe thanks to free-tuition policies. Finland, Norway and Germany top the list of countries that provide excellent opportunities for students and a first class standard of living.
