You are correct the university of Cyrpus has the worlds first for that and Oxford has the one for giving out Bitcoins to new students
Not sure if the first fee payment what they defined here is credited to this place but interesting enough
Still nice to read about another university taking Bitcoin now

You can and should invest in your children's education regardless of if a particular university accepts bitcoin.

Very few people have enough money in bitcoin in order to use to to pay for a college education.

Very few people have enough money period compared to the cost of higher education, at least here in the USA.



College tuition makes the US's bloated, parasite-ridden healthcare system seem like a downright BARGAIN by comparison.



Which is why students are being driven deeper and deeper into debt to try to get that education.

Remember Aaron Swartz, a 26 year old computer scientist who died defending the free flow of information.

End of the day ,does those students get high-paying salary to payback their loan ?

Or they don't ?
