“I am not paying for that,” would be what any reasonable person would say when he had been left to foot the bill for something he clearly had not ordered, or at least would not have ordered had somebody told him the thing would cost not only an arm, but also a pair of legs. Education has become expensive. Unbearably so. And as this trend deepens, a new one is shyly emerging to indeed give it a hard time.
Online universities have sprung up on every Internet corny – glitzy or dingy. These self-styled bastions of higher learning have declared themselves the vanguard of the fight against what may be describe as silly expensive education. Online universities, together with the online college degrees they offer, have made it so that students would be able to enroll for classes without having to pick from what they should deprive themselves if they are to make both ends meet.
Meanwhile, traditional institutions of higher learning have been putting quite the fight to nip this new, and potentially dangerous trend in the bud. Scholarships have been coming a plenty. Indeed, universities have realized the need to support students more, but ironically not enough scholarships can be distributed, as the proverbial bill is, sadly, too hefty to foot.
Scholarships do have a vast and rather positive effect on those on whom they are spend though. Students of outstanding academic performance are the usual favorites who bag the much needed funds which are then used to alleviate some of the stonking financial burden that higher education has so comfortably taught itself to foist upon the unwary academic enthusiast.
Speaking of governments backing students in their efforts to study, consider the full government scholarships in the United Kingdom. In order to apply for those, students need to have 3.0 GPA as a bare minimum.
In addition they need to sit a SAT or TOEFL, or IELTS test to have legitimate evidence that they are capable of handling studies in English.
The government scholarships come with different benefits. More details are available here. A kind reminder to all applicants is that the deadline is set for 20 January, 2018. The portal offers a full list of the documents prospective applicants would need to submit.
Scholarships today give an honest shot to everyone to participate in the complicated and exorbitant process of education.
Do not hesitate a moment more and sign up for a scholarship with the UK government so that you may…
