The main reason for this is technology, which has developed at a remarkably rapid rate over the past few decades, resulting in many new jobs having been created, and an increased expectation to be able to transfer skills from one job or sector to another.

At the same time, however, some jobs are disappearing, due to mechanisation and automation.

Many students do not realise how much university actually costs aside from the learning material, transport costs, accommodation and living expenses. A bursary is a monetary reward from an institution to a student based on their academic performances and personal circumstances. The main aim of a bursary is to reduce the financial constraints or avoid them altogether. There are many different types of bursaries available and the student is not always required to apply for them.

The costs can be daunting especially if you need to cover accommodation fees too. University funding is often an integral part of the college application process. Students are often required to come up with an upfront registration fee before they are accepted into a course or program, which can be difficult if they do not have the necessary finances available at that time.
