A comparison between UCU and UU students' budgets

Body: 
The University College staff is proud of itsintellectual elite, but denies that the College can only beattended by the very rich. It is argued that expenses are the samefor both College and University students. Besides, there arescholarships for students from abroad, and if Dutch students needfinancial support, an extra loan can be

arranged. However, the figures, giving theexpenditure per month from September until July, show that expensesfor University and College students are not the same.
