I mainly wanted to find out about the system in Germany, Scandinavia,France,Belgium and perhaps Switzerland and Italy. College plans worry me to no end although I still have 2 years till I graduate high school. That is because I'll probably be short on the money and getting to college means a whole lot to me .
I'm a pretty good student, my school average is always either A or A+. I plan on either studying Medicine /Engineering (Mechanical or Computer) /Theoretical Physics.
Any sort of information will be of huge help, especially if it's first hand. Estimated cost as an international student, chances of getting a scholarship, comparisons between the systems, personal experiences..etc.
I've heard stories about students (some of them even academically average) who graduated from European Universities for free or almost free. Does that happen often?
I've done some research and googling, but nothing helps like knowing from people with first hand experience . Thanks!
