Top Uk Universities Are Cheap!

Recommended Posts

but still four times the price of the first swiss entry.jsut because they're cheap compared to the yanks doesn't mean they're cheap.

Other than Berkeley, US universities seem VASTLY overpriced. One wonders how they manage to stay in business!

(The fact that Americans are pretty much forced to save for University education from before their kids are born may help to keep prices up there... :rolleyes: ).

IMO They do seem quite cheap, I dont mind the tax payer paying a bit for 'Proper Degrees' that will help the nation but if you want to study surfing or Popular music then really you should fund yourself.

Problem is there is not enough apprenticeship programs taking talented people on from school and proving that Uni is not the only option. You would be better placed to buy a house after earning as you learn your trade than leaving Uni saddled with £40K+ debt and a degree in fashion journalism.

Sorry to any Fashion Journalists.

I think you're forgetting about the financial aid that top US schools offer

http://www.harvard-ukadmissions.co.uk/Funding%20and%20financial%20aid

The website states that for a family with combined income of £75k it is cheaper to go to Harvard than a UK university in 2012!

it is not easy to get in to top US schools either, but certainly worth knowing about for bright kids as an alternative to the Russell group!

Going to a school overseas ticks a lot of boxes– for one, it’s a hell of a lot cheaper, and you don’t emerge deep in debt like you would back home.

Second, the quality of the education is as good if not better than what you would otherwise receive.

Third, and most importantly, it’s just more interesting. The experience abroad will be much more fulfilling, and it will distinguish you from the pool of other candidates who all have generic resumes.

Let’s say you’re an Ivy League type. Why pay Harvard $52,000 per year when you can go to the University of Cambridge in England for around $19,000 per year? Cambridge is consistently rated as one of the top universities in the world: same quality education, a fraction of the price.

If that sounds like too much, consider a place like Hong Kong University. Tuition at Asia’s top school is around $15,000 per year, and there are plenty of scholarships and financial aid packages available. Not to mention you’d be networking with future movers and shakers in the region.

Still too much? Look at Erasmus University in the Netherlands, whose Rotterdam School of Management is one of the top business schools in Europe. Tuition in the all-English program is around $11,500 per year, 73% less than Notre Dame’s Mendoza School, and 26% less than Michigan’s Ross School of Business.

Still too much? Try Qatar University, where there are numerous English-language programs in disciplines such as business and engineering. Tuition for foreign undergraduates is just $4,000 annually, and you’d be spending formative years in one of the world’s most thriving, opportunity-rich economies.

Still too much? Try Albert Einstein’s Alma Mater, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. If you make the cut, ETH’s tuition fee is a whopping $750 per semester for both undergraduate and graduate programs, and the school is typically ranked among Europe’s top 5 universities.

Here’s the bottom line– if you’re facing an uphill battle for prospects and opportunities, get creative; don’t simply follow the same path that everyone else is taking. The world is a big place– stop limiting yourself by geography and start looking overseas for solutions.

why are US universities so expensive?

for the same reason that US house prices went ballistic - subsidised lending.

That and a mentality that requires a degree at any cost as you wont be successful without one.
