I didn't even know about interest until right towards the end of first year. uni's don't focus on telling us about the interest instead they are more focused on advertising to us that they are not letting students pay the full 9K instead fees will be £8,250. Now that am in uni i cannot quit and even if i did i still have to pay for 1st and now 2nd year. However, knowing too well that the more i pay each month the less interest or no interest. If i was to pay £15 a month there would be interest. But if i tried to pay the full amount of fees for each year meaning paying £700 a month then there will be no fees. How on earth is that going to be possible i really don't know. All i know is i have to avoid interests.
In my first year, teachers always said studying and getting a degree is not about getting a job but wider our knowledge. There are people who just studying to gain more knowledge not for the job. And there are many reasons why women choose not to get a job, including:
Wanting to settle in and have a family
Bring up their children until they are old enough to go school and come home alone.
What they studied is no longer of their interest.
No jobs in their chosen field!!
Husband wouldn't want their wife to work and so on.
