Jenn Viemont

"When I heard that there were even these sorts of programs in Europe at all, I started to research it to look about the feasibility and the cost. And I was amazed at how many there were, how reasonable it is, and also how hard it is to find the information. So we decided to put together a single source of objective information for other parents and students."

A entire degree at a top-tanking college in Europe will cost only $41,820, and this includes tuition, housing, transportation, and other expenses like mandatory fees. If a student chooses the US and graduates in 4 years (of which less than 50% of students do), then the total cost as an in-state student would be $98,328 and $336,788 at an out of state private university. The difference is staggering – the entire cost at the end of his Bachelor’s in Belgium will be less than the cost for 1 year at Duke and less than 2 years at UNC. Sources: KU Leuven, UNC, Duke
