You should contact the student loans company in the UK. I would apply based on being a full time student.

But seek advice. Try and contact? the British government (embassy) in your country.

if I’m an EU student, which is? the deadline that applies to me?
31 May or
“The deadlines for 2012/13 applications are:
full-time and part-time students – up to nine months after the start of the academic year.”
I really don’t understand…

ATRJ May 8, 2012 at 1:17 pm

does this apply to international? students as well??

alphon5e May 8, 2012 at 1:21 pm

why should you only have to pay? back your loan if your earning a certain income?

asha05147 May 8, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Wish you were related? to me.

SoapySoul May 8, 2012 at 3:05 pm

SoapySoul May 8, 2012 at 4:01 pm

After graduating I’m? gonna hide out some cave for 30 years then live a free man.

georgiaaustin May 8, 2012 at 5:26 pm

bit? of a bellend but well explained

Yep they say Holland is a great place to do a MA. I’m struggling in my second undergraduate year as an over 25 independent learner, no parental/family support – doing it all on my own. Student Finance are obviously a? lifeline but its a lot of debt to juggle.

Competition for places might settle down, but I wonder about how many intellectuals won’t enter higher education for monetary reasons – sad times ahead, & you’re right… at 9000 a year many see it as far too much debt.

8xNinjax8 May 8, 2012 at 5:59 pm

It’d most likely be even more expensive? there, not that I’ve researched. However I am aware if I went to the Netherlands, I could study for about 1500 pounds a year…that’s missing the point though; I wasn’t complaining either way, just pointing out that not every British student can afford education after the fee rise, contrary to what the video claims. Besides which, I don’t want to go and live somewhere else when England is home.

WeedtoFeed May 8, 2012 at 6:48 pm

Does this new? system also apply to international students? meaning students that come from outside of Britain to study there.

MeesterWolf99 May 8, 2012 at 7:37 pm

There’s? always education in muslim countries, nobody says you have to study in the UK. Be an international student and embrace your heritage.

MeesterWolf99 May 8, 2012 at 8:07 pm

“After 30 years, the debt is? wiped”…

How reassuring.

8xNinjax8 May 8, 2012 at 8:34 pm

It’s all very well unless you’re in the Muslim minority, or, in fact, anyone else who refrains from dealing in interest for moral reasons. I understand we’re a minority, so I’m not demanding a changed system for us, but just be more cautious of the word “everyone” because we do exist, and we do have to pay our fees up front to avoid the interest. So to answer that last question, no I can’t afford to go to university. My? elder brother went, my parents paid upfront. I can’t.

silontong May 8, 2012 at 9:16 pm

Still? no idea?

IRoch86 May 8, 2012 at 9:46 pm

Irony:? YouTube plays a campaign ad for Tea Partier Scott Brown, running against anti-Wall Street Elizabeth Warren, maybe the only major party candidate Max Kaiser would approve of

StuckInTheRabbitHole May 8, 2012 at 10:37 pm

There is no where to run because the Rothschild banksters and their minions already have their? tentacles around the whole world!

mrzack888 May 8, 2012 at 10:58 pm

so what, printing money monetization doesnt create inflation, it? was easy credit that created inflation. all that printed money was went to reflate the void that was created during the 2008 crash. nothings gonna happen. US dollar will go up, no hyperinflation.

janmarsh May 8, 2012 at 11:29 pm

You then? have nothing to worry about. In a sense, you have become one of a 1%. You may already be one of another 1% anyway !

jx14aby May 8, 2012 at 11:46 pm

I knew it too. The minute the Bush administration started asking “What is torture?” I knew we were doomed. ?

misterpants666 May 9, 2012 at 12:21 am

LostFREEDOM May 9, 2012 at 1:19 am

Dr Jill Stein? 2012

mphello May 9, 2012 at 4:23 am

Gonzalo Lira preaches about emigrating based on one’s particular situation.
What if one’s particular? situation is that one has no money? What is one supposed to do THEN? And why should money be the determining factor anyway in anything?

americanbandwidth May 9, 2012 at 4:36 am

I wait? all week for this show.
This is among the best outlets for truth and a take on what is happening that I can understand and feel I can be involved.
It defines the issue so well.
Max deserves his name, he really is Maximus Keiser of the air waves.
I like this show better than Alex Jones and all the MSM combined.

harveybirdmannequin May 9, 2012 at 4:53 am

If you say that you are mine I’ll be here till the end of time
So you got to let me know Should I stay or should I go?
It’s always tease tease tease You’re happy when I’m on my knees
One day is fine, and next is black So if you want me off your back
Well come on and let me know Should I Stay or should I go?
Should I stay or should I go now? Should I? stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble And if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know

smasila May 9, 2012 at 5:25 am

Great show!?

mack3dg May 9, 2012 at 6:22 am

also i forgot to mention that in a dictatorship what you say matters nothing? when you have the guns in front of your face…

mack3dg May 9, 2012 at 6:54 am

i always say that, the word Legal has nothing to do with the word Just or? Justice.
if you and someone sign a contract and in that contract you’re so dumb that you will agree to give them the right to rape and kill your children, that is Legal but it has nothing to do with justice of course in most societies most people will not allow these type of contracts to take place. is all in what the people agree to make Legal, it takes two parties to make a contract legal, people have to agree on it…

PURELOVECREW May 9, 2012 at 6:57 am

“THIS? VIDEO? COMES FROM IRANIAN SOURCES!!!!! Take it with a HUGE grain of dirty? salt.”

Thank you caller from Israel. Next on the line is Tony, from Boston,… go ahead caller

PURELOVECREW May 9, 2012 at 7:24 am

That’s one of main problem with the American, people…most have never stepped 1 foot outside? of their borders. The world has many beautiful places to live freely and happily. And yes, some of those places have McDonald’s…LOL.
