Study abroad vs. study away - September 30th 2014, 11:02 PM

So I was thinking of doing Study abroad (probly to an english speaking country, maybe french) or study away (in the US, particularly looking at hawaii). Anyway, I was wondering about the benefits of both, specifically cost comparison. Anybody ever done both?

While many of the universities in the USA are amazing they are extremely expensive, especially for foreign students.... I think it was going to be around $12 000 A YEAR for me to go to university there. The same programs in Canada were only around $7000 a year and I was getting the exact same education.

I would recommend Canada, Sweden, Norway, England or Belgium, but that's just me

12,000 a year??? That's a bargain. I'm paying 11,000 a semester for a school I dont even like. And this is in-state tuition at a public school.
That didn't quite answer my question, I must have left things out... I go to Michigan State University, the ugly stepsister of the University of Michigan. I could go to hawaii for a month in the summer (2700$ not counting airfare) and get 8 credits out of the way for psychology. My brother recommended study abroad in London or France. This is a pros and cons kind of deal.

Hey!

I know my university has a study abroad option where you go for a semester and pay the same price as tuition at my school if that makes sense? (For 5 courses I paid roughly $2000 per semester so instead of paying say $9000 I would pay $2000 plus the housing and airfare among the other expenses) Personally I'm looking at either the England/France. My school has partnerships with a couple of schools in each of those regions which means I can transfer my credits I took over there to my "home university". It might be worth asking your advisor about what options there are for going abroad because it would be really redundant to go somewhere that you could not transfer credits, if that makes any sense.
I also was looking at universities in the USA but they were far more expensive then Canada and it was the exact same education.

Hey Robert,

What would be your reasons to go to an out-of-state or abroad school? Do you have any schools that you like instate that might be cheaper? I've studied abroad before, and I've studied away from home (but not out of state) so I can give a few different perspectives, but I'd like to know your reasoning first.

PS: Dang, that's expensive instate. My instate is $9,000 and that's freaking expensive in my opinion. But I have a full tuition scholarship, haha.
