Thats what you consider practically free? :D Man i feel like im getting off lucky. But im in CA so yes, i am getting off lucky.Dimitri Terryn said:Belgium has a practically free university system. You only pay €500(about $600) a year tuition, that's it. I pay about €80 because I'm scholarship ellidgeable.
Not the same thing here either.Pengwuino said:Wait... college and university arent the same thing?
Oh god yes! Its like... barely a step up from high school! But to be fair, its only reached $300 in the last couple years. A decade ago it was probably $100 a semester or so. Of course, since only poorer people go there, they usually easily qualify for financial aid if they arent too lazy to sign a few papers which means they'll pay nothing. Of course, the more middle class... yet stupid people.... well.. there stupid and have the money, they deserve to pay a piddley $300 a semester.Dimitri Terryn said:Three hundred dollars per semester? So you pay exactly the same as a Belgian student then :uhh:
Also, not to sound pretentious or anything, but don't city colleges have the reputation of being of lower quality then larger universities? That's what Americans I know have told me anyway, I was wondering whether it was true.
Do you get money for cost of living, or do you have to take care of that yourself? Tuition in the Netherlands for University is €1475 a year.Dimitri Terryn said:Belgium has a practically free university system. You only pay €500(about $600) a year tuition, that's it.
