There are quite a few ways to source funding for study and these include scholarships, grants and gifts. If you canâ€™t find free money for your child it is possible for every child to receive a government loan which is provided on very good terms. If this is your situation you will also want to read about working while studying in order to think about keeping loan debt to a minimum but still maintaining a work/study balance that is not too overbearing.
To further alleviate school fees many schools have on-site housing or student housing near campuses which significantly reduces travel costs and often includes utilities, meals and social opportunities.
