    I'm not actually sure that international students' fees will change... I'll look it up and see. But you guys pay loads towards your education already, I'm not sure that they're actually talking about raising your fees.

    US unis have a need blind policy, which means you only pay what you can afford.

    It's different for International students in UK. Science courses are more expensive than art courses. Medical science is a lot, I mean A LOT, more expensive. approx. 17000 a year.

    and should be too, cause it costs the government a lot to train a medic.

    we have need based grants from the government......

    PLUS....most state universitys only cost about 7000 a year if you are a RESIDENT of the state.....to go to an out of state its going to cost you about 13000 for tuition, not a bad deal really...... and the private universitys dont charge a non residents fee.

    also most american universitys have need based grants that they give out, so you could end up with a university grant PLUS a government grant.......

    I sure hope not, because the 17k-20k medical fees are already painful enough - especially for the integrated, PBL courses where you pay the clinical fee for five whole years. It's interesting though, how Cambridge is actually one of my cheapest unis (after UWCM/Cardiff).

    I don't know this for sure, but I'm pretty certain that there will be no top up fees for international students. Why the f**k should there be? The reason we're paying much higher fees anyway is coz our families don't pay taxes to the British government. UK and EU citizens/residents pay a fee of course and our the added bit foreigners have to pay is equivalent to what the UK/EU students pay in their taxes. The British gov't introduced top up fees for internal economic reasons to do with THEIR citizens/residents so I don't see why international students whouls be affected. If I'm wrong someone correct me instantly...

    Exactly. I had this discussion last night with some people on my corridor. I'm considered international, as is the guy from china, and everyone else isn't. We had 3 lawyers-to-be arguing it out while everyone else interjected with little comments. If you want good debates, make sure you're friends with prospective lawyers, it's great!
