Public Photography Schools in Europe

Does anyone know a good photography school in Europe where there are no study fees? Like a public university or something.

Most German public art schools ("Kunsthochschule") will have photography. There are fees, though, but they are the same as for all public universities, and comparatively modest. You typically wouldn't study plain photography, but more universal concepts, like "visual communication", "media design" etc.

I should add that these are strongly directed towards arts. Photography as a trade is taught (in Germany) by senior photographers through an apprenticeship system, but this education is no longer mandatory to open a photography business.
