    Firstly, students today still graduate with £25k+ of debt so surely it wont be a huge difference for future students. And has noone realised that american students are left with over 150k of debt once they graduate and how do they survive?
    Suck it up and stop whining
    You clearly have no knowledge whatsoever of how student financing works in America.

    I think we're going to see this generation being denied the wherewithal to buy their own homes, new furniture, cars and related costs...in fact, many commodities that our parents take for granted.

    All figures are lower under the new system.
    Yes, but you will have to pay back for longer (to cover the increased fees), which would mean that after a certain time (when you would've previously finished paying back your loan) your net income is lower in the new system. When this occurs depends on how much over and above the £21,000 you earn.

    Well done, some people pay more overall under the new system, others pay less.

    The changes made along with the fee increase still make it possible for anyone to go to uni if they want to; the only 'negative' is the mental intimidation from having a large amount of 'debt', but the new system is structured in such a way that it will have barely any more impact on you than the current system.

    Tbh, if you decide not to go to uni because of the debt then you really haven't researched the system and you probably shouldn't be going to uni anyway.

    Probably, it depends what happens with inflation and graduate earnings.

    Lol...though I shouldn't laugh because it's not funny...but yes - for reasons other than student loan debt.

    I guess we ain't seen nothing yet.
