About a month ago, I was asked by a commenter to write about the cost of higher education in Norway, after rambling on about expensive textbooks. So after having a week off blogging due to intensive studies, I thought time was due to finally sit down and share with you the secret behind higher education in Norway. Can you guess what it is?
Yes, that´s right. There is no real tuition. Education has been one of the most important issues for Norwegians for a long time, and the Norwegian mantra is: Free education for everyone.
Now, I guess you´re thinking, “for all”, yeah right, for all Norwegians,that´s what you really mean, Norwegian Girl!
When I say (write) everyone, I mean everyone. Whether you´re from South Africa, UK, Holland, or better yet, Canadian or American, you can come to Norway and study for free! I know, I know, you´ve probably fainted by this breathtaking news and trying to calm yourself down, but this is the real deal! Norway offers tuition-free education for everyone who wants to come to Norway, to study!
I guess you´re all ready to get crazy commenting, so I´ll keep this post short, and let you share your thoughts.
