Sweden is one of the few European countries to study for free until 2010. The Swedish government has passed legislation to supplement Swedish scholarship programmes, charged for the tuition and application fees of non-EU / EEA students. Many Swedish Universities still provide international students with scholarships in the form of tuition waivers.
