Helenka, you're right that the average figure I was citing masks a huge variation in the cost of educating university students across various disciplines. But this variation raises several questions. Should universities charge different fees for different disciplines, depending on the costs of educating the students? (You might then get even more under-employed English professors). Or should you charge more for engineering and business studies, say, because they have higher earning potential after graduation? These are tricky issues that many universities grapple with. My sense though is that, in the end, they decide to charge a uniform fee across disciplines. Shanta
