Here in the UK yearly tuition fees for Uni can cost up to about ten thousand pounds a year (average about three and a half). We don't have the sports scholarship system here. You just take out a student loan and pay it back when you can, generally a long time after you graduate.

We don't have state run boxing programs either. Never have.
