I would be willing to pay interest.
IF AND ONLY IF both the allowance and living costs loan were raised so that you didn't have to work 20 hours a week on top of your already-over-full-time course to survive on more than noodles & frozen mould.

Pay home-loan interest rates, but get to put the actual costs onto loans, so that the choice of devoting all your time to study is available to everyone, not just the rich.

Because $250 (allowance + rent assistance) barely covers rent in Auckland
