Statistics

Private American universities charge roughly $60,000/year in tuition. Most students don't pay the full amount, but the US is by far the most expensive country in which to pursue post-secondary education.

In Japan, private universities cost about 1.5 million yen ($13,476)/year.  National universities, which are publicly supported, charge far less: 538,000 yen ($4,833) per year.

In the United Kingdom.."For home students, institutions in England can charge up to a maximum of £9,250 (~US$11,370) per year for undergraduate degree programs, and in Wales up to £9,000 (~US$11,050). In Northern Ireland the limit is £3,925 (US$4,830) for EU and Northern Irish students, and up to £9,250 for students from the rest of the UK."
