    I'm doing a BA, it is around about $800 per subject at the moment, $1000 for psych subjects.

This was a few years ago though and I think that the Universities will now with the new budget be able to set their own fees so they will all be different. I might be wrong though

    Saw an interview with Shorten, they are going to fight it all. The best thing that can happen is a double dissolution and it goes to another election. Either way, I always said Abbott would do one term and I stand by that. Hopefully we can get rid of him ASAP.

    My primary teaching degree is almost 800 a module. My DH is doing IT and some modules are 1200 each one.

    Does anyone just find it laughable that in his victory speech, tony abbott said he would "govern for all Australians!"

    How can they defend that they didn't break any promise?

    No cuts to abc, SBS, education, health! They have done exactly that. Joliar! LOL

    The fees vary a bit it seems.

    I am doing psychology and mine are $755 per unit. I am in a Commonwealth Supported place, so don't know if that makes a difference.

    Yeah it depends on the trade it seems. Humanities tend to be lowish (if you can call $750-800 low), then science, IT are the middle level, then medicine and law are really dear.

    Wake up and realise that despite the proposed changes we still have so much more than the majority of the world.

    I'm not selfish or bitter at all.

    My husband and I and our 3 kids have remained relatively unscathed by this budget. Apart from fuel for my husband's car (my car is salary packaged so doesn't matter) and the $7 GP fee, nothing much has changed for us.

    But that's where we are different. I actually have empathy for low income families who have to watch every penny to get by. And let's not forget that there are many hard working families on low incomes. Not all are bludgers.

    yep and masters degrees are more again, my subjects are about $1500 each. (Professional Qualifying) Masters degrees generally around $16k over 2 years.

    My partner and I are 29&33 we have a 6month old. He works full time hours as trade assistant and gets about 32 a year. I get tax a and b and some parenting payment depending on his hours.
    My Dp has looked into training courses to try to up skill how're we can't get the money together as there is never any left over. We just can afford rent and have looked into moving but the lesser rent in our areas don't have heating and cooling and would only be a 10-20 difference. We never have caught up on bills since Dp had to take time off work ( not all the time but the days add up) when I spent 72 days in hospital while having our son.
    I don't drink or smoke or go anywhere, I buy the same shopping list each fortnight and cook the same meals. I do budget to buy my child new clothes however I op shop most of the time. I can not break the cycle I can't get ahead.
    I was applying for jobs when my bub turned 3 months however after applying for 50-70 a week and never getting a call back I stopped. The money would have to be a certain amount to make the child care cost worth it and even then I really want to be there and raise my child as my mother never was for me.
