Public vs. Private Education

Woodbury’s world-class faculty and intimate setting enable us to provide our students with unprecedented attention. It also means that our students are able to take the courses that are required to complete their degree and begin their careers in four years. By comparison, the average time that it takes for a student to graduate from a public university is over six years, largely as a result of overcrowding and the inability to get into required courses. Graduating in four years and getting into the job market immediately has a big impact on the rate of return on the investment (ROI) in education.
