Money, Money Money...

I wonder if the current credit squeeze on both sides of the Atlantic will make finances for our students harder?

Petzi sent me this link to do with student finance in the USA.

One British bank (HSBC) has already stopped giving interest-free over-drafts to students - I don't know about any of the others.

I have heard a rumour, unsubstaniated but from an ex-teacher, that our own I-o-M government might be going to means-test its payment of student fees in future.

::waits hopefully for daughter to get job in future to keep me in a manner to which I would like to be accustomed, after all this pay-out for her education...!::

I think it is a good idea too. Two years gauranteed work as a staff nurse in a familiar hospital is more a bonus than a big weight to carry, I reckon.

In Britain nursing students are treated slightly differently to ordinary ones - many of them get a bursary and so do not have the overwhelming debt when they qualify - but the bursary is not big.
