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:

    I knew that the wall was the main thing in Quebec, and had cost a great deal of money.... In fact, these are the only remarkable walls we have in North America, though we have a good deal of Virginia fence, it is true.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Now that is the wisdom of a man, in every instance of his labor, to hitch his wagon to a star, and see his chore done by the gods themselves. That is the way we are strong, by borrowing the might of the elements. The forces of steam, gravity, galvanism, light, magnets, wind, fire, serve us day by day and cost us nothing.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
