Now that it’s term time once again I’ve gone back to my one post every month or so if I’m lucky. I might try and do better, but I’m never one for promises here…
I do have lots of lovely pictures of bikes and jeans, but I just can’t get round to posting them as it just takes a little time. But maybe, just maybe soon.
The only real rant that I have at the moment is the whole living in Scotland and going to an English University thing. Basically, because I do such a thing (
probably clearly considered obscene by the Scottish government) they penalise me… Just because I want to read engineering at one of the best places possible (hint: which isn’t in Scotland) I don’t get as subsidised financially…
If I were in Scotland, I would not have any fees, and get a meagre yearly non income assessed loan of £915 (try surviving on that…)
If I was to live in Scotland and go to an English university, then I would pay the tuition fees (£3225 a year) and get the same meagre yearly non income assessed loan of £915.
Even if I lived in England and went to university here, then I would pay the tuition fees, but then get a yearly non income assessed loan of £3564.
Just consider the figures… I was just pretty shocked when I found out I was getting a solid £300ish a term, when others in the same situation here got £1000+
