"There are only a few artists in all the arts who can be called the best without argument. I can only think of two—Mozart and Shakespeare." —Orson Welles
On this date 450 years ago, a man was born into obscurity. That man would change the world with his writing, leave us the greatest treasure trove of stories and characters in the English language, and ultimately receive the most screen credits for a single person in film history.
So, here’s to Shakespeare and to his legacy in the cinema—an art form that wouldn’t be invented until centuries after his death.
There’s a stark difference between the ways U.S. and UK students pay for college. In the UK, tuition costs are capped at a maximum of about $15,150, which doesn’t need to be paid up front or until after graduation. If funded by English or Welsh funding bodies, students don’t need to pay until they’re earning over $35,350 and the amount owed is tailored to their income. Someone earning around $50,500 would pay $1,353 yearly for their loans. If it’s not paid off in 30 years, it’s written off entirely. Meanwhile, tuition in Scotland is entirely free for students who study in the home country.
