Help! My twins are both looking at moving away from home to study interstate after year 12. The problem is how to afford it. University fees aside 1 years rent is going to be about $15,000, then there are other food / bills etc. on top. Staying home seems the only option and that means not doing the course they want (also staying home still means more than an hour and half commute on public transport to the closest campus that may not be where they need to go… so they might just have to move closer anyway). I just don’t see how they can afford it without parents taking on the debt. What help is there for this situation?
