Studying at the university is a very stimulating challenge, but often the economic issues become a headache.
To begin with, one must be clear about the differences between a public university and a private university: the function of the former is to guarantee universal access to education; the latter are more expensive and are governed by other types of priorities.
In both cases students can request scholarships to cover part of the academic costs.
5 tips so that you can face your university career in a stable environment.
Remember that today it is possible to study in face-to-face or distance learning. In this sense, distance studies allow to better combine the work with the study obligations.
1.Submit your application for public and private scholarships.
The scholarship system seeks to guarantee equal opportunities for students in access to the university. In fact, a wide variety of scholarships are offered from both the public and private systems.
Also, keep in mind that there are specific grants for some professional sectors.
2.Check if you are entitled to any exemption.
Some groups, such as people with disabilities and victims of terrorism, are exempt from paying tuition.
In some cases, the exemption is total, while in others the discount is partial.
Of course, keep in mind that positive discrimination is applied with different criteria in the public university and the private university.
3.Do not enroll all subjects.
If you sense that the final price of tuition is going to be too high, you can reduce the number of credits.
That is, enroll part-time and take advantage of the rest of the hours to do other activities: work part-time, sign up for free courses, study at the library, etc.
4.Approve the first one.
Repeating a subject means having to assume a more expensive tuition. Therefore, it is worth trying to pass during the course in which we have enrolled for the first time.
Normally, the curricula usually include two calls: the ordinary exam and the recovery exam. Seize it!
5.Try to obtain several honor grades.
Fortunately, good performance has a reward. For example, if you get an honor registration (first class honors registration) you will save the number of credits for that course and earn a sponsored scholarship for your masters
