Support for postgrads? Watch
Dont sum post grads get small salleries, at durham uni i've seen sum chem phds where they pay you bout £12000 a yr, i thought this was typical, i may be wrong.
eg. translation, journalism, law, management,engineering (just thinking about the people I'm in halls with) you dont get anything fees can be up to £5000 per year and there are no loans available. of course a postgrad is a personal choice and I'm not asking for a handout at all but i think there should be some sort of loan available. i'm really lucky I've been given a fund this year by applying to an educational foundation at home but I dont have time to work and I have to shell out £3000 per year accomm plus living expenses and books. My grad bank account runs out in sept and so my interest free overdraft will be reduced and I cant have a grad bank loan this year cos my course is 2 yrs and without earnings I cant pay it back, next year when my grad account goes I'm not eligible. I think there should be a fund available which you have to repay for grads too that has low interest rates.
I always assumed that post graduate students are as entitled to a student account as undergraduates.
I'm hoping to get work exp this summer and hopefully they'll love me and give me money but its getting me down a bit being so broke I've only been out about 6 times in Sheffield all term and I've only been clubbing once. its depressing
