  • Comment on: Students ready to work for free

    Dominic Wright's comment 21-May-2009 12:06 pm

    Students from all classes have an uncanny way to make do financially. Third year students are still eligible to free student overdrafts as well as what is now a 0% student loan and grants from the governments Student Finance. On top of that many Universities offer hardship funds and other grants and scholarships to assist students throughout their education. Many degrees require students to take years in industry to complete their degrees, without the promise of a wage to fund the year, people should stop being so ignorant, what does the profession currently know about the hardships of student finance, none. They aren't a student today. A few more thousand pounds of free debt is effectively an investment in a lifetimes career. However a solution is not in how much a part 1 should be paid, the educational process of architecture itself should be readdressed to educate the architects of tomorrow without burden, making practical experience the responsibility of the money grabbing Universities.
