University Life: a course in personal financeWritten by Richard Green
Recent findings from Educational Policy Institute indicated that UK is third most expensive place in world to go to university. Combine this with figures from Prudential, showing that a third of university students have considered abandoning their studies due to financial strain they have encountered, and it is not surprising that many prospective students are finding need to seriously think through merits of going to University.
Whilst it is true that there are currently loans available from both government and from banks that are designed to see students through their period of studies, for many this will mean emerging into their adult life with mountains of debt. Barclays Bank has stated it believes that once top-up fees are introduced it will cost about £33,000 to put a child through university in England and Wales. At a time when number of students has greatly increased and number of high paid graduate careers appears to have diminished, students now have to factor in cost of living when making important decision of where to study. In an article by Scotland On Sunday (http://business.scotsman.com/archive.cfm?id=644512005 ), experiences of a university student from Glasgow show that question of finance already weighs heavy for some students in their choices of where, or even if, they can study. Moving out of parental home to take full advantage of university life may become less of an option for students as costs increase and financial assistance decreases.
The president of National Union of Students in Scotland, Melanie Ward, said: "I think most students underestimate amount of debt they will leave university with, which will be above £13,000."
With graduates needing to earn £22,000 a year in order to pay off anything more than just interest on their student loans, many people are in their 30s or even 40s before their debt is fully cleared.
Graduates are also finding that they have to make tough decisions as soon as they complete their courses. With banks, building societies, credit card companies, and other private sector lenders requiring sums borrowed to be repaid. The immediate question of, “Do I build on knowledge, work experience and internships, that I've had over last few years and pursue my dream career, or does chasing of perfect job I’ve been working towards for years, have to take second place to getting back into black?”, is now an all too intrusive reality for many.
