How much tuition do university students pay in your country? As part of our "University Life in Korea" series, in this video we talk about tuition in Korea. Attending college seems to be much more expensive in the US than in Korea, but there are some interesting differences between the two countries. We only compared the US and Korea because Terris is from the US and he could give us first-hand information. We'd love to hear from our listeners in other countries! Please let us know what the cost is in your country by leaving us a comment.
