English Tuition fees

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Ok, people who are studying in England. How do you pay for your tuition fees? Did you take any particular loan for your course..orrr..?

I'm gonna be moving down south probably. Cause I want to go to a university north fo England - Hull, Manchester, Huddersfield, or Derby, Leeds..Strathclyde as a last resort. :(

But they want Journalism more than owt. I want creative writing, etc.

I've been told SAAS only applies to students studying in Scotland. Not anywhere else. I need to pay my tuition fees and living expenditure myself.

So..how do you lot it yourselves?

    the SLC gives students in the UK a student loan varying from £3k upwards. Handy really.

    I've already got a loan going on for £3357.00 already..and that's for college. Can I get another for uni?

    if you haven't already, check out http://www.dfes.gov.uk/highereducation but i think most people who have to pay fees have their parent's help, or partner's help, or pay for fees out of their loan, money they have saved up, etc.

    You MIGHT be able to get a grant if you're the one paying for everything, although it's dependant on your family's ability to support you rather on whether they're ACTUALLY supporting you, if you see what I mean.
    I pay pretty much everything myself from my SLC loan and the money I make working my holidays ... and live on very tiny amounts of money per week I have to admit

    I thought that Scottish folk got free uni stuff even if they studied in England, because I remember a while back there was a big fuss because of the inequality with English students studying at the same uni.

    Check it out tbh.

    Personally, I was in the last year to get the student grant (pittance, just about paid rent) and the rest was bank overdraft and thousands of pounds of student loans, which I shall be paying off for some time.

    I know where Hull is, I live umm...near you I should think.

    Not exactly what I'd class as 'north' though

    Then your sense of colloquial English geography is unbelievably screwed up.

    The North starts at about Sheffield. Everything south of Sheffield to about Northhampton is Midlands (divided up into East and West, depending more or less on which side of Brum they fall). London area is London, until you're north of Watford, east of Reading, south of Croydon. And then the rest of it's the South.

    All which means Hull is most defintely the North.

    And Derby is well and truly Midlands.

    i'll admit, my geography isn't great.

    i ought to admit i was wrong, but i won't :p

    Le sigh, doesn't matter.

    I'd need to take a loan through the bank to pay my tuition fees. Then that's before any student loan from the SLC.

    I'll stick to Scotland, merci. :)
