British student’s are compelled to pay back around £20,000 when they finish in university but only after they earn a certain amount. Poor student’s. I don’t think so.
I’m not classing all the student’s the same of course’ but i think i’m taking about the majority of them.
I think they should be working in their spare time and also when they are not studying, to get a few pound’s to help keep them selves’ while at uni and staying in dig’s.
I do maintenance work for a student landlord who has 3 house’s with 5 student’s in each so i see this every time i go to the house’s.
When they are not at uni, they don’t get out of bed until about 10 – 11 am, then they lay around their dig’s watching tv, eating and doing other wasteful thing’s instead of studying.
The house and the yard are full of empty beer tin’s, vodka, whiskey bottle’s and more drink’s bottle’s i never heard of.
When they want to eat every night they get a Chinese, Indian, fish and chip or some other rubbish, how can they afford this.
Their room’s are never clean or tidy, if i go into a room to work i just kick everything under the bed out of my road, why should even think of lifting it. They are so dirty in the way they live while in the house it’s unbelievable also they have no respect for any-thing in the house, and it’s some of the girl’s are the worst.
When they go to the house to start their year, they buy a lot of article’s for their bedroom’s such as, tv, microwave, new bedding, plus a lot of other stuff, but the bad thing is they walk out and leave it all behind them, and i’m sure it was their parent’s who bought all their good’s for the room.
when june end’s some time’s i would go to a house to clear it out so that it can be cleaned etc, last year i had to get a large skip, i put about 20 large plastic bag’s of clothe’s, shoe’s, boot’s, handbag’s, coat’s, bedding, 3 tv’s, 2 microwave’s and lot’s more.
They leave all their small change about the floor on top of wardrobe’s, in drawer’s, everywhere and i must have got over £10.00 worth of money, the girl’s left all their jewellry behind so collected it and took it to my local jeweler’s, he took all the gold out and i got about £120.00.
My grandson got a game’s box and about 10 game’s and they are not cheap.
Poor student’s i know they are not, they are complete waster’s, wasting their time, wasting their parent’s money.
But will it change , not until the Government stop’s the student grant’s, then they will know how to manage on a tight budget.
