    I'm not so sure, I have read before that it costs in the region of £250,000 to get a med student to FY1. £10,000-20,000 a year wouldn't come close to that.
    You are right- I should have qualified that by saying that I've heard that about my own arts and humanities course.

    A loan is not a scholarship or a grant- it has to be repaid. I've never heard of an immigration loan for overseas students. A company owned by Renault pay for which fees, for which course? How many of these are available to overseas fee paying undergraduates? Please send me the URL.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that all courses would have a standard fee for home, EU, and international students. I wasn't aware that it differed between universities. I think it probably differs between courses though.
    EEA (which is EU+switzerland and a few other countries) and local students have standard fees (of about $6000) for undergraduate only. there are no other standars.

    if your from the US and your on a budget then you came to the wrong country. its more expensive to study in the uk as an international student than US as an nternational student. as an estimat your looking at least $40000/year (toatal cost).

    Not necessarily- Undergraduate costs in the US for international students depend on various factors such as the type of university you are studying at. Also, international students at US universities generally aren't eligible for financial aid.

    Not at all, I wasn't linking the cost to how I get them for free at all.

    I just think charging 10k is ridiculous profiteering. I obviously could be wrong, I don't know all the costs towards a degree.
    It costs £250,000 to send someone through medical school - so some serious government subsidy! Well for Medicine at least, I know ither courses are also heavily subsidised by the government. If it is 'profiteering' what are they gunna do with the money? Make the uni better? Employ more experienced lecturers?

    [QUOTE=dismal_laundry]UK universities are not "a lot cheaper" unless you are paying for a private university in the US. UK fees for overseas students are roughly equivalent to US out of state tuition fees at a state university at the more expensive end, for example, UVA. This statement applies to arts and humanities and social sciences courses. Sciences and engineering courses cost at least an additional 3,000 GBP per year in fees, and medicine costs up to an additional 5,000 GBP per year in fees.
    If you are lucky enough to be paying home fees, you really shouldn't complain because you are getting a real deal at the expense of the UK taxpayer. In fact, your post is shallow as well as ill informed.[/I wasn't being shallow, if you compare fees with a lower league college in the states, I guess it's about the same, but getting into a good uni which you could compare to Cambridge or Bath in the UK, I guess what they call Ivy League Universities, it does cost a hell of a lot more. But it reflects in the university. For example, there's just no comparison if you're comparing Cambridge and Harvard for instance, Harvard trumps cambidge, it's so much bigger, beautiful and amazing in comparison. That's what I meant.]
