The days of free university are remembered fondly by some and thought of wistfully by others. These days, Students resign themselves to graduating from university with at least a $20 000 HECS debt dangling over their heads. However a group of universities from around the world are challenging this expectation, offering free online course in everything from Artificial Intelligence to Introduction to Criminology.
