    Student loan and grant, and fingers crossed a job. My parents have said they'll give me a small allowance for travel and phone bills etc. until I find a job, as the grant and loan only cover basic rent and food.

    Mum and Dad pay my rent because under SAAS' rules, I can't get a loan. I pay for everything else with my part time job.

    I have already been to Uni once and left, so I have to pay for myself this time around.

    Getting student loans.

    I don't get how anyone's parents could pay for it, the amount of cash they must earn to be able to do that makes my mind boggle....

    Ah well, debt for me!

    I'll be fully supported by the rents. Hopefully I'll receive a grant from the government (everyone who continues studying and is Dutch is eligible for it), and I have money saved. If the course permits I'll be opting for a part time job to pay for all the extra's. I'm just really glad that I won't need to take out a loan as the grant will turn into a gift upon obtaining a Bachelor degree. Compared to those that will have to live on a tight weekly budget, I can say that I'll be in a pretty comfortable position. Yet I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth, have lived through rough patches and am very grateful for what I'm receiving.

    My parents fully supported my sister and I through university, and they don't have massively high paying jobs. They just feel strongly that we shouldn't be starting our adult lives in debt; I suppose when choosing to have children they personally believe that the duty of care includes providing a satisfactory eductation
