Higher education should be affordable to all, but there are certain courses or institutions that charge tuition fees that are out of reach for the average student.
But how much is too much? Is it after the net price after all financial aid and scholarships have been deducted? When it’s located in an expensive city like London or New York? Or is it due to the number of years the entire study will take, such as medicine?
Many factors influence the final tuition amount charged by each university. Do you think you can match the course, study level and university to the right tuition amount?
