join the military. You get to shoot people, you get paid, and it's not college.

As much as I admire the work you brave soldiers do but would never join the military

Right, it's always someone else's fault. Perhaps if you could organise your affairs better, and develop better interpersonal skills, you wouldn't find yourself in this mess.

Anyways, the OP isn't even raging about the student loan itself - it's that the student finance department are totally useless. Which they are.
That's why the Australian system is so much better. You accruse a HECS (Higher Education Contribution Scheme) debt during your studies, and start paying it back one you start earning over X amount of dollars.

How is it my fault? You clearly don't know how the system works in the uk. The fact that yet again the departments I need information from have been late and then after getting the information I was told to get they tell me it is the wrong one? I even started trying to get the information earlier this year I need the loan to pay for my education. Well to the shit system that is the uk. And my interpersonal skills are fine lol

Not to be rude but you shouldn't talk about something you don't know and just assume that it is the OP's fault. I've just finished university and I can tell you that the student finance system here in the UK is an absolute joke. The first year I sorted it out I did it 5 months in advance and yet SF here didn't sort out properly until a couple of weeks before I went to uni. That is right, it took them almost 5 months to sort out one case that being mine and they kept sending me multiple letters and emails telling me they needed information to prove my and my parents financial standings even though it was done months ago. The amount of headaches we got just because of how unorganised and shitty the system is was unparalleled. I know people who didn't even receive their SF until a few weeks into their first year, it is that bad. Just proves you can't trust the government to sort everything and do a better job than the free market. But that's for another discussion.

I don't know what the living expenses and tuition fees are like in Australia but here unless you come from a super rich family you are pretty much forced take out a student loan from the government because the fees and living expenses are so high. Which sucks because not only are we putting ourselves in so much debt but we have to deal with this fucked up mess.

Its not as simple as "sorting out your finance affairs and interpersonal skills better", it shouldn't take 5 months to sort everything out.

It's the same as that for paying back your tuition fees over here Benjamin.

Stop picking fights and looking like a silly twat Benjamin.

Re: Student finance and government departments

I was going to say just sleep around as a female, but that's out of the option. apply for scholarships. that's what I did, and I'm already getting free college; so I'm getting paid to go to college now.

don't tell anyone.
