I don't know about you guys but isn't this a bit much? ( in a good way ) £1000 to spend for a period of two and a half months?
Look at how many lectures and tutorials you have and how many hours you get. Then take into account of other factors such as the quality of the teaching etc. Then work out the value for money.
Have you taken into account accomodation, food, bills, social expenses, books etc? I take it you are talking about your LEA Grant?
Yes caddie i think it is the grant/loan....... just to spent on food, books, drink etc
that seems too much 1k........ if I have anything left over i think i'll spend it on something of my preference
thats basically 100 pounds a week.... its not alot when you think you have to pay for food - 20 pounds a week - books, socialising, rent, travel... it really isnt that much!!1 im on the 1000 a term and i dont see how im going to survive not with my shopping addiction.... you should have gone on a detox this summer... so your a light weight when you go uni!!1 hjahahah
some people are getting their accommodation paid for them by their families. therefore that leaves them with a grand a term to blow on food, alcohol, and general debauchery
Isn't this thread about the new tuition fees of about £3000 a year making £1000 a term? Or have I misunderstood?
I think last year (my first year) we had about 22 taught weeks so yeah if I was paying £3000 or more a year I would feel short changed. In fact if I had to pay anything upfront I probably wouldn't be at university.
