Student Debt


I presume that this image will need viewing in a seperate window. This is exactly how much debt I am in from my BSc degree. This does not include the money for my Masters, or the debt I owe my parents.
The worrying thing is the constant addition of interest - at around 3% until I start paying it off.

The thing is - I won't start paying it off until I earn more than £15,000 per year. The rate I'm going at that won't be for another 3 years at least - possibly 5 years depending on which degree I do next (if any).

So, if there are any wealthy business people out there, or any well meaning company that would like to sponsor me, give me an email!

As a student myself, all I can say is *ouch* and send you lots of sympathy. That's a scary figure.

Sorry, that's not the most reassuring thing I could say, is it.

Jo, it's better than nowt. Where are you studying then?

I'm at UEA - a second year. But I wasn't as badly behaved as your first years last year, I promise!

I already owe more to the student loans people and I am not finished my undergraduate degree yet. I am on a 4 year course though. Sharon

Thanks for reminding me how much I'll owe when I'm finally out of uni! *Sigh* DS
