Can anyone give me an approx. cost for what the average cost is for a child to go to Uni...I understand it depends on which uni, where in Engalnd, what cost of the course but is there an average.
Debating whether to send DD to a fee-paying Independent or pocket the money and fund ALL her Uni expenses by sending her to Grammar school.
I went to Uni many, many moons ago when my LEA paid!!! So, no loans or anything else. I think I left Uni with some money in my bank balance
So in the (my) old days about 7% went to University...
In the old days you got a grant (usually) and that covered most things.
You could realistically come out of University around debt free if you worked the summers.
If you couldn't be arsed working, you could sign on in the holidays! And they didn't ask silly questions like are you trying to find a job!
And with such a relatively low % of the population graduating it was pretty easy to find a decent job!
Nowadays it costs loadsa money, seemingly everyone goes, you come out with a huge debt, you can't buy a house, you can't get a job...
