If its not free how much does it cost?
Lucky you. Here in UK going to uni means earning yourself a big debt to pay back over your life time.
Accommodation - £7,000
Tuition fees - £9,000
Travel - can range between £3/4,000
Then there's books, food etc as well
Nope, its really expensive in America. Many people have to take out student loans.
I'm not sure if it is completely paid for by students or if the government covers a portion of the cost. The reason is my cousin studied at the University of Pennsylvania and their tuition WITHOUT RENT AND LIVING EXPENSES is $27 000 dollars a year. While Tuition at the University of Toronto is about $7000 - $10 000 a year and you get discounts if you are under the age of 21. I know U of T is a top school so I don't know why our tuition is cheaper then the University of Pennsylvania.
Here you can take student loans. Basic tutoring cost is 9,000 per year, but then you have living costs and accommodation on top of that.
University here (America) can be ridiculously expensive :(
For some people it is, for some people it isn't. Depends how well you did before and other factors.
It's not free. There are public and private universities. The public ones are less expensive than the private ones.
In a public university you pay approximately 1000 euros per year (1104,9 USD). In a private you pay something like 3000 euros per year (3314,7 USD).
Well, depending on what college you go to the cost varies. Some universities cost a lot of money while others are less so. You can always take out student loans, but you will have to pay later.
I have to pay about 12k-14k a year (in tuition/books) for school. Luckily, for me, my parents are poor so a lot of my tuition is covered with financial aid, and I also get good grades which means scholarships. I'm about to start my 4th/final year and I expect to graduate with about 8k in loans. So I'm over the moon about that lol.
A public university here in Italy won't cost more than 2000 a year (most universities here are public). You have to pay for books too (which are quite expensive).
However taxes in public universities can range from 0 to 2000 euros a year (it depends on how much money your parents earn, so if you're broke you can study for free)
For private ones it's more than 8000 a year
Here in America, taxes aren't as high so we have to pay a lot for colleges especially if its private, an ivy league school or religious.
It used to be subsidized. You'd only have to pay back your loans after you finish, but not the subsidized part. Now that's changed and there's no longer a subsidy, only loans. Stupid ruling in my opinion.
In most public universities is free, in others you won't pay more than 10 USD the semester; yet some students only go to waste time and those who really want to learn cannot go due to lack of spaces (there are entrance exams).
That's awesome and you're lucky and no mine was around 25k in the US.
It's subsidized here.
Sweden is fortunate it can still do the "free" model. But with a lot of other internal problems, I'll be surprised if there is a Sweden in 20 years.
Here in the States, the whole thing is a racket.
It's not completely free but it's very cheap compared to the Britain or the US. Per semester a pay a fix tuition fee of about 800 dollars. However, the whole education system and lifestyle is also different in Switzerland. First of all, Universities in Switzerland are a type of education that not anyone can attend as it is the case in almost all other countries of the world. This is because we have a rather unique system called "dual system". After three years of high school (so at age 14-15), students have to decide what job they want to do later on (we give quite a lot of responsibility to kids already early on). about 80-85% of teenagers decide for an apprenticeship. In that case, they have to write an application and go to a job interview. If they are accepted, they go through a 3-year apprenticeship in which they learn whatever job they applied for (it can pretty much anything from being a cook or a landscape architect to banking). The teenagers earn a salary because they already work in the company (it's learning by doing basically) but they don't earn a full salary because they're still in the process of learning. Students who are academically interested and smart can take entry exams to a further education called "Gymnasium". Only about 1-3 students per class (20-25 people) eventually make it into a Gymnasium. In my class, I was the only one out of 5 people who tried the exam. If you pass the exam, you have a further 4 years of education. The students in Swiss Gymnasiums are 15 to roughly 19 years old, so like students in American senior high schools. But the level is more like something between American high school and college. At the end of the four years, you have to take a further final exam in all subjects. If you pass these final exams, you earn the official certificate that allows you to enter a University. So, while Universities in Switzerland are open to really anyone in terms of finances (even poor people can go to Uni), you have to be both smart and diligent to actually make it to Uni. Also, we don't have "good" and "bad" Universities. All Universities in Switzerland are public and they are all top-notch (2 of them are in the top 100 world wide). Finally, college students in Switzerland don't live on campus. We don't have any campuses in fact. Some people live with their parents but most students live in something we call Wohngemeinschaft or "living community". It's basically a couple of young people living in a large apartment and
America it definitely isn't free unless you get a scholarship.
in America college is almost 100% business these days. some people can get private or government loans. some can get loans from the university, and some just pay for it out of pocket... there is a movement to get some amount of college subsidized or made free. there are programs now that allow a graduate to do service/volunteer work (with stipends) and those companies will pay off college debt after a certain amount of work (a few years maybe 2 or 3)... there has also been a proposed plan by Obama to make 2 year degrees at community colleges Free
I wish, it's somewhat subsidized but most people take out a loan to pay for it.
The cost varies per program but it's cheaper than in the US.
University is never free, because buildings and supplies and salaries cost.
The question is, does everyone pay for university with high taxes, or do the people who attend university pay for their tuition?
In the U. S. It depends on how affluent you are. You pay it all if you're in a certain income bracket. The poorer you are the less you have to pay and the better loans/scholarships/grants are offered to you.
Education in the U. S. Isn't free because our country doesn't collect taxes for it, which is a better system overall since people who don't want to go to university shouldn't pay taxes for those that do. Also, attending an in state university is quite inexpensive, my tuition is only about $8k a year including books. It's food, and room/board that make up most of the costs.
It's free here in Scotland.
No it's not. It's not bad I'm America if you look for cheaper schools. My most expensive semester was 3,500 dollars I think. And my cheapest semester was 2,000 dollars
No but it's not that expensive
No, not in the United Statees. It's kinda like post secondary education is an industry over here. Though there are grant, financial aid, and loans to help with that stuff if you qualify. Tbh that's the only way I could ever afford college.
It depends on if you did well in High School. If you got really good grades you can get full ride scholarships. Otherwise it can cost a lot. It depends on the school. It costs more if you go to one outside of your state (here in the U. S.). Some can be as low as $12,000 a semester while others are up to $40,000
Nope... nothing is free in nigeria
you either pay for it directly or through taxes, but it's never free...
I sss topper so i got scholarship. Else j gotta pay for education here

In the US it is very very expensive. You pay for it all unless you fall into a certain privileged status
