Effort, energy and… money: are you limiting your education due to its cost?
University, accommodation and other expenses weigh heavily on the family budget. Therefore, when it comes to studying abroad, the risk is to preclude a precious experience due to a mere but decisive financial constraint.
The constant variation of tuition fees has a considerable impact on mobilities.
However, since the information is power, you should know that Eurydice is an Institutional network that collects, updates, analyzes and disseminates information on policies, structure and organization of European education systems.
At the same time, this incredible resource regularly publishes comparative analyses regarding tuition fees and support systems available in Europe, focusing on higher education.
However, the possibilities for enjoying one's school career to the fullest do exist: there are various support systems and more and more programs - national and European - which allow students to carry out a period of study abroad.
