There are no standard tuition and fee rates for colleges and universities. Each institution will have rates particular to itself. There are a number of variables to consider to include whether the institution is public or private, the geographical location, the specific program of study (some of which have greater course and/or clinical fees), and whether the school is a two year or four year institution. Once you collect the names of some colleges and universities you have an interest in, you can then research the cost specific to those institutions.

For colleges and universities within the United Statesand its territories, you can obtain this information by clicking on the related links section (College Board) indicated at the bottom of this answer box and using the sites College MatchMaker search engine. You can research colleges and universities by name, or by programs of study, or by geographical location, size, or combinations of part or all of them. The site will provide you with a list of institutions based on your request. It will give you the schools background, accreditation, degree offerings, programs of study (majors), entrance requirements, tuition and fees, financial assistance, room and board, athletic programs etc., and a link to each institutions official web page. Practice navigating this site. It will be well worth the time and effort.


When choosing a college or university within the United States, make sure the institution has a regional accreditation. With a regional accreditation you can be assured the coursework and degree you complete will be recognized by all other colleges and universities as well as employers. Below I have listed the six regional accrediting agencies and their geographical areas of responsibility. I am disclosing the below so you do not become a victim of educational scams, institutions that are nothing more than diploma mills, or that do not have the best accreditation, and are eager to take your money for a degree that is worthless. Make sure the institution is accredited by one of following responsible agencies.

Regional Accreditation Agencies

· Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools - Educational institutions in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands, as well as schools for American children in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.

· North Central Association of Colleges and Schools - Educational institutions in Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, New Mexico, South Dakota, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

There is no specific answer to that, and as you are aware, College is not compulsory. Seeing as in the Uk, it is only compulsory for a child to stay in education until the age of 16, after that it is down to them whether they would like to continue their studies or go into paid employment. However, based on statistical data, on average, around about 84% of students in the United Kingdom go to or attend college.

Education in the UK is very centralised; the UK Government plays a much more direct role in education. All schools must follow the National Curriculum, though Scotland and Northern Ireland have a large degree of autonomy.

There are two levels of schools and both are compulsory: Primary (aged 4-11) and Secondary (aged 11-16) schools. Students leave Secondary School after taking about GCSE exams (usually about 10 subjects). Most will go on to a Sixth-Form College for the next two years and will finish by taking A Level exams in 3-5 subjects. A Levels are in turn required for University entrance. Some Secondary Schools are combined with a Sixth-Form, while some Primary Schools are divided into separate Infant and Junior schools.

Most students go to state schools and private education is available for those who want it. Some of the most famous schools are boarding schools, where pupils live at the school during term time.
