Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I have an offer for a foundation programme which I really want to go to this year. However, I'm classed as international for the next two years so I'm not eligible for Student Finance.

    The uni wants me to pay a £5000 deposit before I start the course. I'm not sure what to do! :confused:

    Please give me some advice!

    Do the math . Do you have lots of money? If not wait till you can apply as a home student (if you can) and get the favourable rates plus help from sfe. Think how much you will save. Get a job for 2 years or get experience. Sometimes you have to think longer term and exercise a bit of patience.

    I kind of knew this but I didn't really want to accept the reality. Thank you for the advice.
