Looking up the transcript for 'Rose', came across this:

ROSE: Do you think I should try the hospital? Suki said they had jobs going in the canteen. Is that it then, dishing out chips. I could do A Levels. I don't know. It's all Jimmy Stone's fault. I only left school because of him. Look where he ended up. What do you think?

AHAHAHAHAHA. (sob) 'Do A-Levels'. Ah, those were the days. Rose - you're 19, you could do an Access* course if you really wanted to continue your studies, but A-Levels are forever closed to you. As is any free education.

*It stands for 'Access to Higher Education' and is a one year course which will let you apply for university at the end of it. It is not free. However, if you take out a loan and go on to complete a degree, the Access loan is written off. You will of course then have accrued a much greater debt thanks to the university fees...

Nutty. We have Pathways which is essentially free [it's how I got into uni] or you can go to TAFE which is like, $50 a semester.

:( The loss of the EMA is something I will really never forgive the Coalition for.
