        1. Dear shamsah,

          The following sentences "Students must be on a full-time Master’s programme (not MBA) and be self-funded. Students must be studying based at the University of Bradford i.e. distance learning students are not eligible to apply." do not exactly say much. It could be either way. Why don't you try and contact the University and ask your question.

  2. Typical selective, arnroagt and nasty response from bomber, the arrogance of those who spent to long at school perhaps. If payment tax is the criteria for voting age becomes irrelevant, all we need is a tax return. This is another example of putting (unearned) rights ahead of responsibilities.Anyone who has ever employed 16 years olds or had teenage kids and their friends at their house, will be amused by bombers rose coloured glasses view of ‘responsible’ teens. Funny how the childless are the experts on children.Which group is it that kills itself the most, drunk driving, drugs, violence, etc. young ‘bullet proof’ males I believe, it that an arnroagt adult prejudice or it is a statistical fact. I understand is to do with brain development resulting in an inability to predict consequences. I will leave it to bomber to expand on the science and research on that topic.Aren’t many professionals in the field writing about the sense of entitlement that is prevalent today, 30 years olds still living with mummy and daddy, avoiding adulthood and its responsibilities. Expecting to immediately have the standard of living their parents worked 30 years or more to acquire. Bomber works on his opinions (which are like him perfect in every way) without wasting time presenting evidence or facts. This whole thing is flying the face of every other trend, age of marriage and childbirth is rising as is the age of leaving education, all would be higher than the statistics show if it weren’t for the teenage drop outs who are going the other way.We already have this trend of sexualizing young people, especially girls, forcing them to become adults before they have a chance to be children. On the one hand we are over-protecting children slowing down their development, on the other children are under pressure to become adults before their time. Just how do you explain to your children that they are mature enough to do something as grown up as vote, but to young to have children, drive a truck or drink. Personally I think 16 is to young for sexual relationships and I think most parents advise against it, realistically of course we know many children are sexual. I think placing more adult responsibilities on children is giving a mixed message, its hard enough bringing up children already this will make it worse.It is giving adults a mixed message as well. Is a 16 year old a child or an adult, in my view they are a child, if the state decides they are adults I predict the harm from that will far outweigh any benefit. Bombers abuse has made me re-think how I will view 16 years olds in future, maybe I have been wrong in my mindset of believing I had a special, social responsibly towards children, is that my arnroagt adult mindset. In the past I have intervened a couple of times with teenage children, in ways I would not have done if I thought they were over 18 or so. I genuinely thought I was doing the right thing now I see that was arnroagt and wrong for me to interfere with their adult rights. I feel if I did that now I would be criticised as being patronising, arnroagt and worse.If we have to have legal prostitution I would say a preferable legal age would be 21, but the reality is once an age threshold comes in its tends to spread. It is not my place (or right) to interfere with or protect anyone who is legally considered an adult and of voting age. On a personal note, I was re-doing my will recently and age of inheritance is something that is entered. If you want it to be over 18 you have to state it. I have put 25 but am considering raising it to 30, no doubt there will come a time when children will be encouraged to challenge this.Bomber you complete lack of empathy or compasion towards people who have been hurt by life make me sick. Some people are doing it hard and your contempt towards them is totally misplaced.
