    It isn't fraud. But this girl is a fool and she will doubtless regret wasting her student loan entitlement in a decade or so.

    'My boob job has done more for my career than any degree could': Katie Price fan went to uni for just TWO WEEKS so she could bag £14,000 student loan to pay for surgery

    A wannabe glamour model spent two weeks at university before ditching classes - just so she could apply for £14,000 worth of student loans to fund breast enlargement surgery.

    She seems like a classy and intelligent young woman!

    'I'm the one who has really invested in my future because my bigger boobs have made me happier every single day.'
    Bigger tits = investment. Studying = waste of money. Right.

    'You always hear about people who leave university and can't get jobs. That just seems stupid to me.'
    Gaining education and skills at university = stupid. Blowing over 10k on surgical enhancements = savvy. Gotcha.

    'I'm probably happier than most of the people who enrolled on that course at the same time as me.'
    Having your tits pumped full of silicon = fulfillment. Gaining an degree = dissatisfaction. Okey-dokey!

    She scammed us.

    Don't blame her. Doing a poxy subject like psychology at a **** uni is a waste of time.

    On the bright side she will become the first "student" that can actually pay back their loans thanks to her fruitful career.

    Another well thought out policy by Mr Cameron.

    Typical student, they couldn't use money properly to save their lives

    Wrong. She used it properly. She obtained a low interest rate loan to invest in a potentially lucrative career in glamour modelling.

    Read my thread on university, it may give you perspective.

    Not as much as the bankers and all the super rich people and corps do.

    To add to my previous point, if this loan enables her to enter into a lucrative career then she's used the loan exactly in the way it was intially designed to be used insofar as it's really only justified if it enables people to increase their earning potential.

    Sorry, there's a limit on how vacuous a post can be if I'm to respond to it, and I'm afraid this crosses it.

    It isn't fraud
    It is, if she misrepresented herself as a student/potential student to secure the money for a purpose other than what it was meant - ie to support her during her studies. Student loans and grants aren't available to the general public.

    That said, it's still sloppy reporting by the DM.

    She didn't. It sounds as though (as generally happens) we're being old half-truths.

    But the tuition fees go directly to the University?
    Yeah how did she get so much as well so quickly.
    This, it's hard enough getting payments on time and enough to cover rent and stuff.
    Plus either way she'll still have to pay it all back.

    That's assuming the article is legit, which for the Daily Mail means it's probably bending the facts quite liberally.

    No it isn't. There is no requirement to spend your maintenance grant/loan on food and living costs.

    It would be fraudulent to claim a student loan if you weren't enrolled at university, or to claim multiple loans under false identities. Doing what this girl did is not fraudulent - stupid yes, but not illegal.

    Yes. Once it hits your account, you're free to spend the money on whatever you want.
