Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.

Well it's about time!

No more free education for non-Europeans

Sweden is to start charging tuition to non-European university students, according to comments by higher education minister Lars Leijonborg in the Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) newspaper.

Today, Sweden is one of the few countries in the world which does not charge tuition to students from other countries.

The Social Democratic government examined how a tuition system would look, but never put forward a legislative proposal on the matter.

Leijonborg has thus far avoided taking a stand on the controversial question, but now says that the government is in total agreement on charging fees to university students coming from countries other than the EU member states, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.

“Our primary argument is that it is unwise of a country not to benefit from a payment system which obviously exists. Why should these students pay money to American or British universities, but not to Swedish [ones]?” Leijonborg explained to SvD.



Well, even though I think it's stupid to give away multi miljon edjucations to Britts an Yanks- that's not the problem. We are giving it away to everybody, the majority being middle easters and North Africans. If a Swede want's to go abroad for studying- it's the Swedish tax payers who are paying tha tuition for them. Fine! But why should it also be the other way around? I'm sick and tired of having to pay for others edjucation!

On the other hand, Lars Leijonborg- Minister of higher edjucation said that: "Poor foreign students should be granted scholarship financial aid so that they would be able to study in Sweden". Of course this means that poor students will seek their way to Sweden! How ever you turn your bum is on the backside... Gnaaargh!
