For the first year, I paid £3,000 tuition fees, then they realised about halfway through that I'm only on part-time, so they halved it because £3,000 is for full-time. Then, later on, they realised that my course wasn't actually intensive enough for that, so I only had to pay something like £325. It's nice getting a refund of £2,700. :-) Either way, I'm still paying for my education and they ballsed it up.
To get a half-decent job though, you have to pay for half-decent education, so :-P
When my dad took the dog for walks around the UEA, it was the hottest part of the summer, when everyone else was getting flooded. XD And he used to let the dog swim in the UEA Broad, as it's called. Hope she doesn't fall ill now. :-(

Heres a better one for you.. ;)
If I didnt work and pay tax, the government wouldnt be able to afford to subsidise your 3 year party....I mean education. ;)
I'm going for a Joint Honours degree in History and Politics, basically because the two link together quite well, and were the only A-Level subjects I was really any good at!

If we didn't pay our tuition fees, the Government wouldn't be able to afford your unemployment benefit!

So what are you studying then? Back when my mum was frequently going to hospital for cancer treatment, my dad used to take her to the hospital, with the dog in the back of the car. He'd drop mum off at the hopsital, then go and park where he didn't have to pay for parking, and whilst he was there, he'd walk the dog around the UEA grounds. It is open to the public. ;-)
So if you ever go outside to have lunch, it's not my fault if you put your food down in ... something ...
> Really? Where are you going? UEA or CCN?
UEA, although my mum keeps referring to it as UAE. I don't think there's much sand, oil or camels in Norwich though...

aww, see, i missed out on this side of uni life entirely.
maybe it`s because i went when i was a bit older, maybe it`s because i cared more about getting good results, or maybe i thought the rest of the people there were tools (which was no doubt reciprocated :D )
probably a combination of all 3!
Nahh im just joking...its true = p
