The problem of high fees and ways to overcome

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I'm an international student and I want to study in Australia or New Zealand. My grades are pretty good and I've got so many 6's and 7's. However, the problem is that tuition fees are so high and I can't afford them.

Is there any way to overcome this problem?

Unfortunately, scholarships are very competitive and I don't think I can count so much on them.

Thanks.

PS: In the interim grades, I got a total of 39 including ToK and excluding self-taught. So I would be a hard-working student but the fees obstacle is a problem!

Get a student loan? It's how almost all students in the UK who don't have rich parents willing to fund them have to go through University. You come out of the other end laden with debt, but at least everybody around you is also laden with debt. In the UK I'd say there are extremely, extremely few ways to avoid or reduce tuition fees, if any. You just have to start finding ways to come up with the money and hope that you've applied for a decent enough degree that you'll earn it back later.

Taking loans is really fine for me. But do you know any loans given to international students? Because as far as I know, governmental loans are only given to you if you are an EU or UK national, which I'm not.

When I start university, I'll have resided in an EU country for 2 years. But I don't think that will help me as long as I'm not an EU national. And that's the big problem! :no:
