A study has shown that, while the United Kingdom has some of the most expensive tuition fees in Europe, the country offers many more affordable options.
The U.K. ranks ninth among 27 OECD countries for student fees, according to a recent study by the International Federation of Scholars.
The country also has the highest number of study abroad students per capita of any OECD country.
“We think there is a lot of opportunity here for people who are less wealthy to study here,” said Jia Hongsheng, a senior research fellow at the IFS who wrote the study, which was released Tuesday.
“I would like to think it’s a very attractive opportunity for those who have little or no means to study, who have a limited knowledge of the world and can’t get their degrees from the United States.”
A report by the IFTS in January found that the average cost of a U.S. undergraduate education was $27,700 in 2018, about $9,000 more than the U.N. benchmark for a middle-class family.
It found that graduates of U.U.M.S.’s undergraduate programs earned nearly $2,500 more than their counterparts in the U,K., on average.
The median tuition fees paid by graduates of the U-M.M.’s graduate program in 2019 was $19,890.
The average cost for an American who enrolled at an American university for four years was $35,000, according the I.F.T. report.
“There is a big gap in what U.
British students are getting from the UK,” Hongsheung said.
“But that gap is narrowing.”
The report did not measure the financial burden on U.M.-based students, but the IFA found that their average debt was $11,800.
In contrast, graduates from the U.,K.
paid $13,000 on average on average for their bachelor’s degrees.
Hongsheing said the UK offers more programs than the United State, with a higher concentration of undergraduate programs.
The IFA report found that British students were less likely to complete their degrees compared to U.W.S., but the difference was smaller than in other OECD countries.
Hongshing said students from the British Isles were also more likely to earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees, compared to those from the other OECDs.

The IFS study found that U.B.I. graduate students who completed an associate degree in 2019 spent about $3,500 on living expenses, compared with $6,500 for graduates from other countries.
The report noted that UB.
Is graduate students also had higher financial burdens than their peers from the European countries.
For example, the UBIs average student loan debt was about $25,500 in 2019, compared, for example, with $34,000 for the European Union.
Hong said the difference in costs between U.A.I.-based and U.H.
I-based graduate programs could be due to different types of financial aid available in the two countries.
In the United states, for instance, most of the money for a bachelor’s degree goes toward loans.
In other countries, most graduate students receive student loans from their parents, who can also get in-kind contributions for living expenses.
“It’s a little bit like the difference between having a mortgage and a car loan,” Hong said.
In addition to living expenses and loans, Hongsheings report found U.I., U.E.A., and UW.
A graduate students had higher debt burdens than other graduate programs.
U.F.-based doctoral students had an average debt burden of $10,400 in 2019.
Hong Sheng said graduate students from other OECD nations often have lower debt burdens, but “there are some gaps that I think are due to differences in financial aid and loan policies.”
Hongshening said that U-B.i. students were also less likely than U.G.i.-based PhD students to take advantage of grants, loans, and scholarship programs.
She said the IFCS study found a gap in financial assistance offered to graduate students.
“What we found was that graduate students in some cases were not getting the financial support that they need,” she said.
