  • university/college fee's

    i know there's a lot of americans at college, so i was wondering how much your fee's are.

    At the moment our fees are £3145 a year + accomidation + living costs + learnig materials. So it equals roughtly £8,000 a year. The government are in talks with our university vice chancelors on raising the fees to between £5000 and £20000 or even to remove the fee cap all together and let universitys decide them selves how much to charge. It is causing an outrage among students and lectures alike. So i invite anyone to comment on what you think of this.

    my veiws on this are that the vice chancelors who are getting paid rediculous sums of money for being pen pushers is a farce

    the fee's should stay as they are otherwise students will end up in more debt and eventually the working class people of england will no-longer wnat to go to university as they wont be able to afford it. Leaving universitys open all the higher class people who have lots of money to go to university. Eventually leaving our country run by the rich and wealthy people of england. Not good!

      My local university, University of Texas at Brownsville/Texas State College.
      Currently charges $146 per credit hour so $1752 for 12 credit hours(4 classes) + $1000 in fees. If you take a science class or something requiring a lab class tack an additional $200 easy. A decade ago when I first started college I was paying $1000 for 4 classes.

      This is the reason I stay at my local college. I could have gone to a college upstate and paid a ridiculous amount of money to get a college degree.
      But I stayed here for my Undergrad and will eventually move to Houston or Kingsville, Tx for my professional program.

        Tuition for undergrad at my school is $34k. Housing, meals, books, and other fees come to about $16k. So $50k per year total. Graduate students are charged at the rate of just over $1100 per credit hour.

            Fees are all over the place. Private >>> State run. In all places I know of state residents pay less than US citizens from other states and they pay less than International students.

                  Thats probably per year. I went to a private college for 3 years and it was about 26k per year. And since i was a white middle class male i got crap for aid.
                  that sounds like a good idea trooper.

                    seeing as i dont know how america is run as a country i cant really comment on that, im curious to know tho how the fee's compare to that of england. And also if people think that english students have it better/worse off or if you think they should stop their complaining and live with whatever our 'wonderful' governemt decides

                        i bet you could become a international student at an American college and get your education paid for. Just something else to think about. American colleges cream themselves to have more international students, and will do alot to get them

                            6 years ago I was in a private college in upstate New York that charged $40 K per year, all told. I had $20 K per year in scholarships, which was enough to let me last all of one year before going completely broke.

                            Now I'm at a state college that's much more reasonable, clocking in somewhere around $5 K per year. I can pay that off what I earn working part time after class, no problem. Less than one year left to my degree, woot!

                              This is probably because they have lower enrollments and smaller endowments.
