Unfortunately I am in the exact same situation as you We seem to be a forgotten few - and there are not enough of us to make people aware of the situation in order to get any government or financial help any time soon! I understand that CSM won't even be running the foundation as it is now in 5 years time, so I doubt this will change in the future either.
Anyway I'm on foundation too at Byam Shaw, and we've just been told our course finishes at the end of May. (Remind me to start another thread on how much teaching time we lose by this!). Anyway, the fact that we are finishing up so early means I can do an extra month of paid work in over the summer holidays (and hopefully clear my debt). It's not an easy answer but there really is nothing else for us to do, short of finding a sponsor/sugar daddie <hehe>
...Should I go back to school?
