Tired of paying school fees? Want to learn German?

Well, now you can kill two birds with one stone if you move to Germany, according to CBS News.

German universities used to cost $630 per semester but they’ve since changed policy and will now offer free tuition for all American and other international students.

Many universities in the country also offer international language programs which teach students German along with “discounts for food, clothing and events, as well as inexpensive or even free transportation.

In explaining why Germany made this move, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a Hamburg senator, called tuition fees “unjust” and added that “they discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”
