You're confusing me too, here, you pay the $12000 yourself (unless you get scholarships or something like that).
You're saying that the Dutch government gives you $11,243 a year right?

BTW, I checked and last year I paid about 20% of my income in taxes (income tax, social security medicare, etc...).

I get like $300 a month now. So that's about $3600 a year.
If you also count the money you get for Public Transport, which is $85 a month/$1020 a year. You'll get $4620 a year.
I pay about $1800 for college. Plus $700-$900 for books. Total of $2700. And the rest...spend it on beers I guess? :p

Oh the $11.243 I mentioned was when you get the full load of money...living on your own and stuff...and I counted the Public Transport Cash into it too..

But you need the cash here...government increased insurancemoney and all shit, pay for your dentalvisits...at least $100 a time (for me :roll: )
Pay your own medicines... :?

My tuition at a public Canadian univeristy is about CAD$4500 this year, which at today's exchange rate roughly equals US$3465. No housing (because I live 15 min away from the school) is included, but it includes a public transport pass which is useful for the occasional drink at night (over 1 beer can = illegal to drive), and health insurance.

Books cost about CAD$500-1000, depending on how often I make use of the photocopier :mrgreen:

My Danish professor told me before that he went to univeristy in Denmark for free. You just pay you ass off in taxes once you get to work.

:shock:
AFAIK my father paid about 50% (49 or something). :?
I'm done with school now and hopefully I will pay the same high income taxes one day... :p :D

Only 12000 dollars...How much do you actually pay for your education?
I pay about 1500 euros a year for college and about 600-800 euros for books.

my education costs $6000, and the room and food cost the other $6000
and then i aso have to pay another $300-350 for textbooks and notebooks and such

the cheapest schools are community colleges which usually cost $2000 a year.. but you only get 2 years education out of it (associates degree).. if you want higher, you have to go to another private or public school which usually costs about the amount i pay or a lot lot more

I'm home schooled in 11th grade, when I'm out of high school I'll probably go to a community college for two years, then transfer to Stony Brook University, my dream goal is to attain a PH.D in business from NYU. Ah I can hear the flood of debt flowing in now. :( :lol:
