Recently Germany did something pretty awesome, it abolished all tuition fees at all public universities. However, that's not all they did. Germany also extends this free college education to all U.S. students! The U.S. has just passed $1.2 trillion in student loan debts, so this may be a smart option for future students looking to study abroad and save money. Although they are accepting foreign students, German universities do have a request for those considering this offer. Aside from the usual credentials and records needed for applying to any other universities, a foreign students need a level of conversational fluency of the German language as a prerequisite. There are plenty of programs both in Germany and in the U.S. that offer courses on basic and advanced German, so if students are dedicated to learn the language they can get a great free education!
