Why the hell did I stay so long in that stupid country?!

Just looking at the website of Chester University:

Tuition Fees
You will find that your contribution to your tuition fees differs from university to university, but will usually be somewhere in the region of £3,145 per year. This will increase slightly each year in line with the cost of inflation. However, you will normally not be expected to pay for these directly until after you have completed your course, and until you are earning more than £15,000 per year. Instead, you will normally be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover fee costs, which will be paid directly to us on your behalf.

So, it's about $6,300 a year for undergrad. You don't pay up front and you don't start paying back until you can actually afford to.

And I'm told that this is after the system was screwed up under the Blairistes.

Its a funny thing about Canada; they aspire to being a socialist country, but can't even get students into their universities.

Just another of the millions of reasons Britain is still better than that pathetic backwater I was living in for sooo very long.
