Study in Europe
Free education is education funded through government spending or charitable organizations rather than tuition funding. Many models of free higher education have been proposed.
Primary school and other comprehensive or compulsory education is free in many countries (often not including primary textbook as well as certain post-secondary administrative and sundry fees), including post-graduate studies in the Nordic countries.
Article 13 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights ensures the right to free education at primary education and progressive introduction of it at secondary and higher education as the right to education.
