Finland!
« on: February 18, 2012, 10:12:20 PM »
Is college really free for everyone in Finland? My preliminary research indicates they have degree programs taught entirely in English.

I'm, thinking I screwed up when I chose my schools.

Aren't there English speaking countries with free college?

Probably, but I'm a bit isolated from educational policies in foreign countries. I'm hoping the presence of international members, including those who live in Finland, makes this forum a decent source of anecdotal reports regarding educational opportunities. :P

There was talk of charging foreigners but I'm not sure what came of it. I think its still free though.

I'm pretty sure foreign students go to university for free in Sweden too.

I bet it was the "true finns" party's idea in an attempt to keep foreigners out, because they hate foreigners.

If I was to do it all again, there's only one sensible choice.

The University of Maastricht is actively recruiting British students for the coming academic year.
The Dutch all speak English anyway.

OH MY A THREAD DEDICATED TO FINLAND MY NATIONAL PRIDE IS TINGLING

Yeah, college is free here apart from living costs and paying for books and shit, though you can cover for that with welfare. Not sure if you would be liable to the same social benefits as a foreigner, though.

Also consider that our universities aren't very good.

Your updated map has mislabelled The Netherlands as "Holland".

No, just the ones that were made by people as confused as you.

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holland

"Holland is a region in the western part of the Netherlands."

Wikipedia even has a correctly labelled map of Holland for your convenience.

Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holland_(disambiguation)#Relating_to_the_Netherlands
In English (but also in Dutch, German and Swedish), "Holland" is informally used as a name for the whole of the Netherlands

I am speaking English. This is the Lounge of an internet forum - its safe to say it is informal.

Whether people would "informally" refer to The Netherlands as "Holland" is irrelevant to whether Maastricht is actually in Holland.
