I hope someone out there can give me advice on this. I am desperate for some good news.
My girlfriend is Vietnamese, I met her while living there. I recently moved back to the UK for study, but she is still living in Vietnam. She has dreamed of studying in Europe for years, and she is trying to go to England as her first choice.
Her grades are strong enough to be accepted here, her family finance is not.
My question is for students who come from outside Europe, from a country where the currency is not so strong:
How do you handle the high cost of studying here? Is everyone on a scholarship?
I know it is sensitive to talk about money. But really, there are some countries with a 'weak' currency like Vietnam, which makes it so difficult to come to Expensive England.
For the VISA, you must show the UK government evidence of your finances. £9,135 for 9 months, and then the cost of your course.
I have been looking at scholarships, but I only find options for maybe 50% of the course.
So I want to ask, really, how do we do it? Was your family able to pay for your study? Did you find a 100% scholarship? Even then, how do you afford the crazy cost of living?
I am starting to think I'll never see her again and there is 0% chance of her coming here.
I am not making any judgements about money - I just want advice.
