Regardless of whether you are considering offline or online universities, you will still need to pay tuition fees and taxes. How do you bypass them?

But you will to enroll with an offline or online degree with the following subjects including Civil, Computer, Electrical, Electronics, Business Administration, Architecture or Molecular Biology and Genetics.

The scholarships are awarded based on a few criteria including international exam scores, English proficiency and the quality of the student’s statement of purpose.
Moving on, students of offline or online universities should be aware of the Wells Mountain Foundation which provides undergraduate scholarships to students in developing countries looking to enroll with one of the many available degrees offered by traditional or online colleges.
The grants range from $300 to $3,000 annually, but the average is $1,400. The money can be used to pay for school tuition and fees, books and stud materials and boarding.
To be eligible to apply for the Well Mountain Foundation scholarships, students interested in pursuing a program with offline or online universities, need to demonstrate they have successfully completed a secondary education with good to excellent grade. They also need to show they will be studying in their country or another country in the developing world, but also that they have plans to work in that country upon graduating with an offline or online degree diploma. Some volunteering experience or expressed willingness to volunteer while being the recipient of the WMF scholarship, is another criteria by which the applications will be judged.
The Chinese Government also wants to attract international students to its universities. For this purpose, it is awarding scholarships up to $2,900 for bachelor degree programs and $4,300 for Master Degree programs. So those of you who are thinking in enrolling with one of the many offline or online colleges out there, you also have China as an option to consider. Applicants for bachelor degree programs need to have a high school diploma in their country of origin and be under the age of 30. Perspective students need to meet the language requirements of the higher education institutions they are applying to, so choose carefully. Not all Chinese universities are offering study programs in English, so if you can’t speak Mandarin it would be useless to apply to one.
