The 10 Most Expensive Colleges in the World

The U.S. is home to some of the most expensive colleges in the world, with annual tuitions surpassing $50,000. While some countries emphasize that education should be a public affair and therefore charges as minimal of fees as possible to university students looking to earn their graduate degree, this is not the case for other nations. Although the United States isn’t the only place that offers exceptional education in exchange for sky-high tuition rates, it certainly houses some of the priciest academic institutions in the world.



A short while ago we addressed this issue in an article about the 10 most expensive boarding schools in the world, noting that most of them were either British or American, and this is also true for graduates. However, the assumption that higher fees equal a better education happens to make the universities on this list some of the most solicited as well. So let’s see which names fall under the most expensive colleges in the world and what they have to offer.

10. Imperial College London

Annual tuition: $42,000 (approximately)

The London-based institution offers a smaller range of careers compared to other colleges, with its main focus on engineering and computer science. Therefore, the average tuition of $42,000 per year doesn’t fluctuate much between fields of work. Also, women are likely to receive a scholarship due to their incursion into a male-dominated industry.

The nine most expensive colleges in the world, and some of the most prestigious institutions on the planet, are yet to come on our countdown. You can’t afford to miss them (or attend them, most likely).
