Rubbish for two very good reasons:
You have to do much more than just string a few words together to get a science based degree. 
And:
Scientists have to explain their findings in learned journals.  Look at any journal and it is 90percent text and only contains a small amount of 'equations'.
Sloppy English is not acceptable.

No sorry have to dispute.

1. You do not get marked down for grammar or spelling mistakes. You get marked up for the scientific information you contain in your report / essay etc.

2. Journal entries are not written by university students. I do not even think a PHD student will write a journal entry.

I am talking about an undergraduate degree here.

My understanding is no fees or loans including maintenance loans need to be paid back until after graduation and they get a job paying over £15k a year at present rising to £21k when the higher fees come in in the 2012/13 academic year. I recall this being discussed on TV so dont have first hand knowledge though.

Maintenence loans are also through choice.

Students don't have to apply for them if they don't want to and they/their parents can financially support them with all the other necessities. You don't start paying back any of your loan until you graduate and get a job.

Simples  :cool:

To expand on this as I was thinking about it more.

I can remember a revision session where we were advised if an exam question said to write an essay on something

And we wrote all bullet points we would get 95% marks - thus this means 5% is spelling and grammar (which is nothing when you think of it).

Plus they would also say make a bullet plan of notes of what you plant to write in the essay, and never scribble out those notes. As if you run out of time the marker will read your notes and mark you on them. Unless you line them out.

They are trying to help you get the degree no penalise you and for a science based degree its largely wrote learning of facts.

I disagree with this too, since I had to write plenty of essays for the science subjects I covered. Anyway the thread is actually about the number of students turing to prostitution, not about the content of degrees. I did however see some terrible writings whilst at university. I prefer more vocational training.

Thanks for clarifying that nothing needs to be repaid till after graduation and in a job. This to me doesnt explain why higher fees charged would make many more students become WGs as the NUS is saying or implying as while studying they arent paying the fees or loans back.

I understand that jobs that students might do to earn money to help are fewer in this dire economic situation so my logic tells me this is a more likely reason than higher fees that more are becoming WGs or working in the sex industry generally. The Prostitutes collective says it has had many more calls from students, this of course doesnt mean more actually became prostitutes. Like most things in this unregulated industry actual facts are hard to come by, its usually guess work and a very important point Strawberry made which i agree with was i just cant imagine most Uni students who are studying for a career to help their future admitting to becoming a WG, sadly it still carries a stigma and certainly not by giving their real names, so anoynmously is more likely and who knows how accurate the information is. I smell NUS bullshit with them finding reasons to complain about higher fees. Actual definitive evidence is what will convince me. ;)

Also I can't actually see too many actually declaring their student status to all and sundry either.

Actually, there's one student who always seems keen to say she's a student: Emily Jones, she's a moderator on Saafe.

Yes I know, I wasn't referring to her - but students in general.

Many many students are mature students, but punters are not interested in students who are in their thirties, they want 19 year old girls, preferably from nice homes, not too many of them, in the parlours.

I wouldn't want a student because ...

a) they are probably 18-20 years old and inexperienced in being able to give a good time to someone old enough to be their dad
b) they are only in it for the money

I'd much rather see a >22 year old who has decided to accept prostitution as a career and is therefore more adept at it and wants to make a living, therefore by being as good a prostitute as they can be.

I saw a 19 year old student (trainee dentist) who was very good and friendly as well, she was also certainly not inexperienced. I have met/fucked WGs who are 30+ who have had poorer technique than younger ones. All prostitutes are in it for the money, not the socialising or as a career choice.

I think what defines a student is more interesting - is a 20 year old doing an online course and prostituting in her spare time a student? Is a WG who does 2 hours a week resitting her GCSEs? I think there is a difference between being a university student and simply studying. I think WGs are happy to flaunt the fact they are students to appear intelligent or nice, when they probably haven't studied anything other than some guy's cock and balls since they were in high school.

English language students don't count. I've seen plenty of them.
