As can be seen on this map, the price of getting a university education varies greatly from country to country throughout Europe. 

For example, the most expensive years at university seem to be found in England and Cyprus, whereas your time at university is free in Greece and Scotland. 

The map is, of course, a slightly simplified version of the truth, as most European countries have rules which mean that students from other European countries have to pay more. 

It does, however, show some startling contrasts in how much debt students across the continent are likely to leave their educations with when they go on to search for their first job.

What do you think of the map? Is it an accurate illustration? Is it missing important details? And what are some of the consequences of the varying cost of education found across Europe?
