Don’t be a victim of the UK’s soaring university tuition fees. Study in a way that suits you, so that you can achieve your potential.
In the past decade, university tuition fees in the United States of America and United Kingdom have gone through the roof. Consequently, lots of people are beginning to feel like university education just isn’t within their budget. However, for those who have already accumulated substantial student debt, it can be even worse. There are numerous cases of people forking out huge sums of money for tuition fees, only to realise a year or two intotheir degreethat their course isn’t for them. Many of these people have the desire to start afresh and study another subject, but feel like they don’t have the resources to pay for another three or four years at university. The common conception is – I had my chance, and I blew it.
For graduates who decide they want to go back to university or students who want to change their course, the mounting costs of university tuition can prevent them from planning their ideal future and becoming successful. Emptying their bank accounts for their first degree can leave them jaded and unwilling to risk such a large amount of money on a second degree. The result of this is that scores of potential students are turning their back on higher education – despite strong desires to study a new course – simply because they are scared of the financial repercussions.
“The reality is that first-rate education doesn’t have to leave students buried in debt.”
Take the example of Martina – a Malaysian student who dropped out of Durham University after two years. “I was studying Politics, but decided it wasn’t for me,” Martina explains. “I really wanted to study Engineering in London, but I didn’t have the money to start a new course. Especially as I would have had to cover the costs of living in London, which isn’t cheap.” She goes on to say that “it didn’t seem like a good idea to spend more money finishing my Politics degree either, as I really wasn’t enjoying it.” Now, Martina is back in Kuala Lumpur, without a university degree and struggling with over 100,000 MYR of student debts.
Unfortunately, Martina’s case is becoming all too common these days. Thousands of students are being dissuaded from pursuing tertiary education by the perceived costs – but, in truth, this shouldn’t stop them from studying the course of their dreams and achieving their potential. The reality is that first-rate education doesn’t have to leave a student buried in debt. In today’s 21st Century world, technology can help students on a tight budget get the education they desire at a price they can afford.
