Free Degrees & Americans

After a refreshing dinner of veggies and more veggies, I entered an interesting conversation about higher education with a German lass studying abroad in Mexico. Once I heard that Americans can obtain their degrees for free in Germany, I did some immediate Googling. I can not believe that I had no idea about free public education overseas! Considering I love being abroad. I compiled a list of top countries offering programs, as well as some other exciting aspects. *Short post*
