    ~£43k max loan and in London for a 4 year course. If I included tuition fees that's ~£80k. Yep.
    At least you probably won't be paying that all back i suppose, londons living costs sound insane

    A maximum of £30k, thats just for tuition fees, luckily my parents are covering living costs and accommodation. Still a ridiculous amount though.

    No not for med I don't think. And the bursary's barely anything. It makes the maintenance cost lower down. Essentially I'd be having to pay the same amount, just from my own pocket before getting a job
    And omg Ik. Thinking about it gives me a heart attack:lol:
    I'd say it'll be about a good 92-4K overall. Maybe a tad bit more

    Still haven't decided on where I want to go between the US and the UK

    If I go to the UK, I will end up with minimum £120,000 debt
    If I go to the US I will end up with minumum £210,000 debt
    But the thing about the US, is that jobs are much more prevalent and salaries tend to be 5 times higher than UK counterparts in the field i am looking at

    I really wouldnt let it worry you so much.Unless things change you might not pay back anymore than students doing 3 year degrees anyway.

    Seems like current students average debts are going to be double that.

    That was pretty frugal of you, i m kind of wishing that I'd taken a part time job as i'd probably have not needed to take the maintenance loan then.



    That's pretty good, i presume your mortgage will go down much faster once your student loans out of the way
    Yea, I lived at home and worked 1 day 2 nights in a call centre so I was earning £600ish from that job plus I had worked full time during summer so I had saved up quite a bit. I only paid £160 in digs to my mum and that included my phone bill. Plus I got my bursary, being from a "broken home" it was pretty good, couple hundred a month.
