Countries that have free education are sure a thing to notice. Canada and Germany both are amazing countries that have world-class universities. Having done a degree from anywhere in these counties will open a ton of job and career possibilities. Regarding free education and whether it is available or not, the answer is; Yes and No!

Germany is one of the most popular destinations for studying abroad. A large number of international students every year go to Germany for their masters. One of the prime reasons for this is free education. Basically, Germany is filled with public universities which all do not charge any tuition fee for their programs. Besides, it's not like these free institutes are any less in caliber.

RWTH Aachen University is one of the examples here. Not just in Germany, this university is considered top-tier in the entire Europe. You get access to various free of cost master degrees in a developed country like Germany. It doesn’t get any better than this. Colleges in Canada aren’t free however. But compared to the top names like USA and UK, it is definitely affordable.

The flight tickets cost from India to Germany are basically around INR 60,000. Based on the booking and experience, it can reach up to 1 lakhs. On the other hand, flying from India to Canada can cost you around 1,25 lakhs on average. A good class ticket for the same costs somewhere around 1.5 lakhs.

But apart from these, the major concern here are  living expenses. Because even if you get free education, you don’t get to stay in the country for free and pursue a degree. On average, you will need a round 8-10 lakhs annual expense if you live in Germany or Canada. Does it help your dilemma or did I leave something important?
