lokis_mentor: Why would I want to enroll in a foreign art production technique, subs? An, art degree from a foreign school is just as worthless as an art degree from an in-country school.
Fun Dumpster: I've been looking for a use of all of my pictures I took in Europe, though isn't a foreign collage something more geared towards tween girls?

GDubDub: I am a programmer with no degree. I work for a Fortune 100 company writing financial management software. I would like a useless piece of paper for the hiring luddites. Hepl.
brantgoose: Ironically, seeing as Homeland Security made it hard for top students and top professors alike to go to US universities. Canada, Australia, New Zealand ... and the UK possibly ... took up a lot of slack--valuable, creative slack.Mmmmm ... delicious slack. Beware the stealers of slack.A lot of Americans go to Canadian schools because it is, even with the much higher fees that are charged foreign students, dirt cheap and good value. Canada is fairly homelike for Northern US students and professors.Canada has fewer than 100 universities to 16,000 or so in the USA, but they are all good or middle rank universities, whereas the US has a small number of great universities and a large number of jumped up high schools and seminaries and teacher colleges.If the US adopted Canadian education proportionately it would have less than 1,000 universities. If Canada adopted the US system, it would have about 1,500. Once again, Canadians get the job done on the cheap compared to the US. In fact, we're even more economical in education than we are in health insurance and health care. This is a good thing all in all.The best American schools, teachers and students are very good and equal to any in the world, but the worst are dismal and drag down the average.Canada ranks behind a handful of Asian countries (Japan, South Korea, whatever) in math and sciences but that is good. That is very good. The Asians are, if anything, working too hard and a lot of students break down or commit suicide from the stress. The Canadian system is more relaxed but still good. Common sense prevails over intelligence some of the time, and that is good.Canada is what the USA would be like if it worked more for the people and less for the super rich.

theflatline: I see they have faculties in Sub Saharan Africa, Rabat, and Cairo.I wonder if they are party schools?
The Southern Dandy: Heh! Subby spelled it wrong. To funny!

Fark It: If we truly cared about education in this country, we'd semi-nationalize everything at at least the high school level, and we'd tie financial aid to the BLS's projections for particular career fields and degrees, and what you can expect to make upon graduation. Everybody should also have the opportunity to take community college courses for credit beginning in high school, and if you're expecting to get aid for a $20k-40k a year school for some BS undergrad degree, and the required courses for the first year or two can be taken at a junior college, you should be given aid to take those courses at the junior college level. There's no reason why English 101, 102, or Intro to Psych/Sociology should cost $400 per credit hour, and as taxpayers, we shouldn't be subsidizing them.

skullkrusher: or stay at home and go to state school.
