who is we? students in NZ? really? there's no privatized or government aided loan system for college students? or is post-high school education a free public institution in your country or something?
edit: AUS, i mean, not NZ. i thought you were from new zealand at first for some reason. something about "kiwis" or somethin like that
We have the loan for tuition fees here and the good thing about it is it's interest free for as long as you stay in NZ. You can also get a weekly $150, and a one off $1000 loan for "miscellaneous expenses" - gotta pay that all back one day though.
My parents literally made no money in the last two years and I haven't been able to prove it to the tax department - if I did I could get about $180 per week and never have to repay.
