Education is the biggest investment parents can make in the future of their children. But they sometimes burden family finances. Long Carl Kulip studies can bring them a solution.
It’s true that studies are expensive
- In fact, they can also (almost) cost nothing (apart from the ancillary living expenses which are not the least). But the public university, except for some sectors, does not always offer good training. You only have to see, at the end, the rate of integration into professional life! Also, I never wanted to dissuade my children from going to big schools, even private ones. Studies are an investment for life. And as a parent, I really think it’s a duty.
– Not necessarily easy to assume, this duty …
– This comeback, it’s true, is particularly hard. I had already taken out a loan to pay for the expenses of Mathew’s business school. But now he got an internship at a big bank in London. He wants to do finance and London is to finance what Hollywood is in the movies. A perfect opportunity, so … But rents are prohibitive …
I was told that the cost of living is particularly high.
Yes. Mathew is not a spendthrift boy. But he must dress properly because you know English … they would not tolerate a scruffy outfit, even a trainee student. All this is a budget and as I had miscalculated, I had to subscribe to several consumer loans …
– Good. But this is the last year of Mathew’s studies. After, logically he should have a good job with a correct salary.
– This is the last year of Mathew but it is also the first of Mathilde. She decided to enter a graphic design school. It’s an artist, what do you want … So of course, schooling is cheaper than for a business school. But we must add costs to end no end: computer equipment, of course, but also drawing: leaves, paint, pencils, textiles …
It is by seeing his list of annual supplies that I understood that this year it would not happen.
– So what did you do?
– I had to act quickly, otherwise I was good for the overdraft, agios and … more if affinities! So I met a professional in Long John Silvers credits. I told him about my situation: this year, my family expenses are exploding and my salary will not be enough. I needed a solution, he found it for me.
– That is to say ?
– He collected all the credits I had scattered a little here and there. And he smoothed them over several years. As a result, my finances are clean and I have no more chills each time one of my children calls me to ask me something. For my children, this is the last straight in a way: after, they will be financially independent. But for me, as a father, it’s really this year that I needed help.
