Jurisprudence, business, medicine (dentistry) and bioengineering. In this case, the training of physicians takes place up to 8 years, two years of which are allocated for internship. The cost of medical postgraduate study at Cambridge is 40,000 British pounds per year.
Which university is the most expensive?
The London School of Economics , opened in 1895, is part of the University of London. It is LSE called among the most expensive educational institutions in the world. In the ranking of research centers, the London School of Economics is located in the top ten, along with Cambridge and Oxford. It includes 30 scientific institutes and centers.
Only one third of the 8,000 students in the school are British, the rest come from 140 countries. It is generally accepted that the LSE's main courses are economics and political science, but 23 faculties are open at the school, which also include degrees in anthropology, sociology, law, geography and the environment, statistics, international relations, accounting and other sciences.
Only the residence of students in the school will require at least 12 thousand pounds a year, the training is paid separately, and the cost depends on the faculty. The one-year course on the bachelor's program is estimated by the university at 16,000 British pounds. A considerable amount of money will be required for living expenses, since high prices are also provided for additional and individual classes, sports clubs and even corporate clothing elements (suit with the LSE logo).
It will be fair to say that graduates of the London School of Economics justify high financial investments and often reach the top in their profession. For example, 28 school leavers became heads of state, and five former LSE students earned the Nobel Prize in economics.
