hello mate

like heidi went to uni at 25 and you pay no fees which is a massive bonus..

i took out pretty much max student loan and ended up in about 12,000 worth of debt even though I worked pretty much 20 hours a week- earned at least 7/8,000 on top of what I borrowed. its a fecking expensive ride- make sure you really want to do it!!

i went back to do study for the pure love of finding out interesting stuff, and couldnt get any further with the mcjobs i was doing- i really thought this degree woudl get me into international development- which it didnt at all - Bah! anyways its defo been worth it - as it gave me the confidence to know that i could stick at something and challenge myself and happily i landed my dream job a year later, in a pretty unrelated field which I,m still in- and I know i wouldnt have got considered without a degree as it was a pre requisite-. Re the debt- denial all round!

also really worth looking into whether you can get some of your studies sponsered- depends which sector you might be going into- a mate blagged their project management degrees part paid through construction firms......

good luck with decisions mate

It is an incrdible debt to burden yourself with at the beginning of your life/ career, but its an experience I wouldn't have missed for the world. There is much more value in university than simply the degree you do :Smile3:
