University - Cost


The examples and perspective in this Section may not represent a worldwide view of the subject. Please improve this article and discuss the issue on the talk page.

Many students look to get 'student grants' to cover the cost of university. In 2012, the average outstanding student loan balance per borrower in the United States is $23,300 USD. In many countries, costs are anticipated to rise for students as a result of decreased national or state funding given to public universities.

There are some big exceptions on tuition fees. In many European countries, it is possible to study without tuition fees. Public universities in Nordic countries where entirely without tuition fees until the latter part of the 2000. Denmark, Sweden and Finland then moved to put in place tuition fees for foreign students. But still, citizens of EU and EEA member states and citizens from Switzerland are exempted from tuitions fees and the amount of public grants granted to promising foreign students was increased to offset some of the impact.

Famous quotes containing the word cost:

    Keeping accounts, Sir, is of no use when a man is spending his own money, and has nobody to whom he is to account. You won’t eat less beef today, because you have written down what it cost yesterday.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    If music in general is an imitation of history, opera in particular is an imitation of human willfulness; it is rooted in the fact that we not only have feelings but insist upon having them at whatever cost to ourselves.... The quality common to all the great operatic roles, e.g., Don Giovanni, Norma, Lucia, Tristan, Isolde, Brünnhilde, is that each of them is a passionate and willful state of being. In real life they would all be bores, even Don Giovanni.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    One must always be aware, to notice—even though the cost of noticing is to become responsible.
    Thylias Moss, African American poet. As quoted in the Wall Street Journal (May 12, 1994)
