Students starting university next year can expect to graduate with debts averaging almost £60,000, according to research published today.
Undergraduates enrolling on courses in England – where costs are higher than elsewhere in the UK – can expect to owe £59,100 when degrees finish, it was revealed.
Debt levels will be fuelled by a dramatic hike in tuition fees for students starting courses in 2012.
According to figures, the overall cost of a degree course – including fees, equipment, rent and living expenses – is expected to almost double under the new student finance regime.
