College Is Cheaper In UK And Europe And Students Protest To Keep It That Way

There's a big difference between $4,700 and $40,000 for a top quality education.
The Wall Street Journal
Tuition fees in the U.K. vary from institution to institution, and also from region to region, but the cost for an overseas undergraduate at University of St. Andrews, in Scotland, for the academic year 2009-2010 would be about $19,000.
And if you're lucky enough to be able to claim "home" or "European Union" status, this figure would be just shy of $3,000 a year—though it is set to triple or even quadruple from 2012 onward for some institutions south of the Scottish border under the British coalition government's aggressive overhauls to higher-education funding.
Even to study in the University of Oxford's hallowed halls would cost a U.S. student just over $20,000 for an undergraduate program of study. (The fee would be about $4,700 for a U.K. student.)

You would think American college students would be upset that they are paying so much more for college than their European peers, but they seem to be satisfied mortgaging their lives rather than standing up and raising Hell.

In the UK students graduate in three years not four and that's huge when it comes to shelling out the big bucks for tuition.

An added attraction for Americans is the length of a typical degree course. In the UK they last three years, while a similar course in the US takes four. Read more.

Kudos to the students in the UK.
