Chiles University System

Describe the university system of Chile (country in South America). How many public universities exist? Are they free or how much does a year of studies cost? How do people get into the university (open access? entrance exam qualification?)? What is the acceptance rate? What percentage of people have a university degree? You might find this in CountryStudies (Links to an external site.), ClassBase (Links to an external site.), or World Education and News (Links to an external site.). How does this compare to the university accessibility in the US? What are some of the positive and negative outcomes created by this level of access to university education both in Chile and in the United States? In your opinion, is one system better than the other or are they about the same? If neither is good, what are 1-2 changes you would recommend to improve the systems and why?
