Hold up, I thought you got to go to Uni for free in Oz!!

At least that's what one of my profs told the class! He said it was something along the lines of 'pay if you can, and if you can't, no problem!'

Really?!

My prof lied to me! :lol: Wouldn't be the first time! I was under the impression that you only have to pay back your loan if & when you can afford it.

It sounds like the same as what happens here. You get a loan from the Government for about £4000 a year. You have to pay it back when you earn over £15,000 - 9% of everything over £15,000 to be precise. It's highly unprobably that a graduate would earn less than £15,000, I would imagine 99.9% of grads pay back their loan.

"Tuition" fees are paid by your parents, but that's means tested so only the wealthiest have to pay the full whack.

Of course, living on 4000 a year is nigh-on impossible, so you've got the credit card bills and a bank overdraft to pay too...

Ha, ha, nice link bak to the original thread buddy, but no, u hav to pay it all bak and the bad thing is, is that even if u take out a loan, somehow it ends up more expensive than paying for it all. And yes, now would be an awesome time to win the lottery! :wink:
