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.

Considering the yanks have to pay roughly ten times that per term we should be pretty thankful.

Have you taken into account accomodation, food, bills, social expenses, books etc? I take it you are talking about your LEA Grant?

No, it's nothing, you'll find that out soon enough.

When you have 3 children to put in childcare (£400 per month, £300 for ONE WEEK when its school half-term) and the powers that be won't give you any money for fees and childcare because your husband apparently earns too much!!!!!

£3000 is all the income I will be getting for a year at Uni, and that doesn't cover my childcare....world gone mad.

Sorry ~ not meaning to moan, but I needed to vent that somewhere!

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

Maybe we should be charging commercial rates on student loans after all?

Not really, a lot of people have to pay for their accomodation (which at some universities can be £1000 or more a term :eek: ), food, books, stationary and then you can think about going out

Don't just blow your money, this is the cheapest loan you are ever going to get. If you don't need to spend it all, open an ISA or something, seriously it's worth it.

Powers that be? do you mean your LEA? If so try access to learning fund at your uni - childcare is suposed to be a priority.

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.
