See now Trustfund U as I like to call it is at least $42,400 per year not including living. So unless you or most likely your family have cash to blow the smart people go where they don't get put over the coals.

I am doing OU- gone up to about 2.5k per module- six modules to an hons degree, at a brick uni- I 'think' about 9k a year tuition and an hons degree is 3 years. Plus living and expenses...

What's a Uni tuition in the UK? Here it's a welcome to debt for the rest of your life for pretty much the same education. Unless you're a trust fund baby example: Boston U.

"And did Daddy pay your tuition"
no, in the UK we got loans for our tuition, so yes I'm in debt, but I'm paying it back now I have a job.
I had a part time job too to help pay for food and drink and stuffs too, its really not all that difficult to not be poor and not have help for your parents, in the UK anyway

@ruthless: That's not necessarily accurate. You put a lot of "if's" in that statement of yours. For example, when I finished my education (molecular biology/biochemistry) I applied for as many jobs as I could find. Problem was, lots of labs only posted jobs on their company's website, so if you didn't know about the company you couldn't apply. Second, where I live there are very few science jobs, as most jobs are focused around trades like potash mining or oil rigs. So sometimes you have to be willing to relocate to where the jobs are. I was lucky enough to get a great job through the contacts I made during my education and internships, but I literally did not even get one call or interview for any of the jobs I had applied for. I spent 2 months jobless, and I didn't get a useless degree or anything.

getting a job is easy after uni, as long as you went to a good university, did a good degree, and apply for enough jobs. I did mechanical engineering at Leeds and me and all of my friends (ranging from lots to no previous work experience) got jobs. just don't doss about doing a philosophy degree people!

"Speak it brother. I was so pissed when Obama raised tuition and crashed the flourishing economy when he took office."
I truly hope you are being sarcastic in stating that Obama crashed a flourishing economy !!!!

Try getting an education in something the current market considers useful.

While I agree in some respects, it's also not easy to anticipate what the job market will need more of in 3-5 years. It's entirely possible you could go to school for a profession that is needed right now, and by the time you're done, they don't really need nearly as many of these people any more. But here's the way an art major can make over $100,000:

Meh, I graduated with a ChemE degree in 1986 and the economy was bad then, too. Took me a year to find an engineering job and I had to move all the way to Louisiana for it. Then, I got laid off in 1993 and couldn't find a job because decent companies only wanted new grads. So I went back to school and learned computer graphic design and started an entirely new career. You do what you gotta do.

Thankfully, I made specific choices to not rack up a ton of student loan debt. I had an $1,100/yr scholarship, in-state university tuition, took enough credits per quarter to get a discount, lived at home most of the time and rode the bus, bought used textbooks when I could and my parents covered the little bit of tuition and books that was left. Worked for a professor senior year. Graduated in 4 regular years (no summer school). Had zero debt when I got out.

Make yourself useful: Build things, fix things, write about things, invent things etc.

Whomever ranks up 100,000 in debt should have though it twice before signing on the dotted line.

I'm just wondering why Abraham Lincoln is getting his degree. And why is he wearing high heels?!?!?
