Fewer Law School Applicants Due To Lack Of Jobs, High Tuition

http://wosu.org/2012/common/images/wosu-color-128-32.pngBy . As students return to class, there are fewer law students in the lecture halls. Law schools across the country report close to a 20 percent drop in the number of applicants this fall. The lingering recession, staffing cuts at law firms, and the rising cost of a law degree get the blame for the decline. It can cost more than $100,000 to earn a law degree. Twenty-three year old Brandon Edwards says that was too much when he thought about attending law school full time at the University of Cincinnati. So he decided to stay home in Columbus and attend Capital University’s law school. More...

MBA : des frais de scolarité de plus en plus fous

http://www.e-orientations.com/imgs/orientation-etudes-metier-emploi.gifLes MBA américains sont souvent en pole position dans les classements mondiaux. Mais ils sont également les plus onéreux, frisant parfois les 200 000 dollars ! Pourtant, l'investissement est rapidement récupéré…
L'UNEF a récemment pointé du doigt la hausse du coût de la vie étudiante. Mais on est bien loin des coûts délirants pratiqués outre-Atlantique ! Logement, assurance santé, transport,… A ces coûts s'ajoutent parfois les frais de scolarité mirobolants. Dans un pays où les MBA coûtent parfois jusqu'à 200 000 dollars, les étudiants doivent se serrer la ceinture… pour un temps seulement. Suite...

Why Does College Cost So Much--And Why Do So Many Pundits Get It Wrong?

http://www.hastac.org/files/imagecache/Small/hastac-icon.jpgBy Cathy Davidson. To say that American universities are too expensive is like saying cars are too expensive. What do we mean by such a statement?  Are we talking about the cost of a Lamborghini Veneno (at 3.5M, one of the world's  most expensive cars) or a Hyundai Atos (at $9000, one of the least expensive)?  For the captain of industry, the sultan, or the magnate, there might not be enough luxury features on the Lamborghini.  For the person barely hanging on to that minimum wage job with no benefits, paying $9000 for an Atos to get across town to work at Walmart every day may be hopelessly out of reach.
So is the Hyundai too expensive?  Is the Lamborghini too cheap?
That is the kind of question we need to be asking of U.S. higher education, an ad hoc system that varies tremendously by state and by kind.  Unlike many countries, we do not have a publiic, national university system. The range of tuition costs (elite private university? public community college? for-profit institution? online provider?) is as diverse as the students being served. More...

Canadian Millennials Look For Opportunities Abroad, Embrace Expatriate Culture

http://s.huffpost.com/images/snn-logo-comments.pngBy . Royal Tsang was working at a bank in Canada when he was offered an opportunity to move to Hong Kong. The 29-year-old Vancouver native had never lived abroad before, but took the opportunity to gain global experience. Almost two years later, he says the nature of the job in Hong Kong is global in scope, making it an ideal place for career growth and making connections from around the world. Tsang is one of many Canadian millennials who have sought experiences abroad.
Each year, 10 to 12 per cent more students go abroad, says Glynn Hunter Executive Director at the University of Calgary International. Universities are increasingly making opportunities abroad a priority in their academic plans, and a nursing student can now do their practicum at a campus in Qatar. More...

University of Alberta suspends admission to 20 arts programs

http://profile.ak.fbcdn.net/hprofile-ak-frc3/373030_100429659640_257453280_q.jpgBy Alex Migda. The University of Alberta is suspending admission to 20 arts programs as the faculty grapples with a budget shortfall over the next three years. The programs were chosen “because they have had 10 or fewer students enrolled as majors” in each fall term, from 2005 to 2012, according to an Aug. 16 memo from dean Lesley Cormack to her department chairs. Some of the programs have no students enrolled. Cormack stressed that students already enrolled in the programs will be allowed to complete their major. More...
