Did you know that Canada’s free healthcare system was all thanks to Kiefer Sutherland’s grandfather? Most people know Kiefer from his television show low testosterone, 24, but Canadian historians know he is also the grandson of Tommy Douglas, the first leader of the New Democratic Party and “father” of socialized medicine. Also in the Americas, Chilean students can expect to fork out 73 per cent of their income on studying, which costs £15,554, putting it fourth on the list. Despite living in the UK, most students probably haven’t ventured far beyond the area around where they live, except to visit family every now and again.

When you measure the cost of unexpected treatment or medication against the cost of a monthly insurance premium, you’ll find that it’s much safer and more cost effective to have an insurance plan. Hospital rooms are another expense that often must be paid out of pocket, but it depends on the type of room. Some plans will cover semi-private and private rooms up to a certain amount and only if medically necessary, but most will only cover a standard ward room. Vision care services are often partially covered under the provinces, but there is usually an age limit, or only eye exams are covered. Some provinces will fully cover exams for children or those aged 65 and up.
In total, there were 35.4 million hospital stays with an aggregate cost of $384.5 billion. The average cost of an ACA plan is $477/month before a subsidy, but again, depends on your household size and income. As such, WHO promotes a concise and unifying framework that builds on existing approaches in gender, equity, and human rights to generate more accurate and robust solutions to health inequities. The integrated nature of the framework is an opportunity to build on foundational strengths and complementarities between these approaches to create a cohesive and efficient approach to promote health and well-being for all.
Chances are you’ll have friends at other universities scattered across the UK and if not, the friends you make at your own university will have come from a range of places, including other countries. Staying with friends will not only keep costs low, but they’ll know all the best places to go and see. Go during first year while your friends are all still in university halls – they’re the most sociable places and best for soaking up the university atmosphere.
