    The article suggests that many probably are as the graduates stand little chance of ever paying the money back.

    Oh dear, don't tell students that. They'll run for their safe space. The honest truth is that their are a great deal of degrees that should be axed but their are still fools will pay for these degrees so I guess that hope is out of the window. Give it a minute and one of them will come along, ranting how their £45K in debt to study fine art is worth tax payers money, even if they go on to never work or use that degree.

    The thing is though that they won't pay for them. Or at least all of the so-called loan. Ultimately (other?) taxpayers will because they won't earn enough to have to pay it back

    Or just maybe it's the poor state of the job market combined with stagnated wages that are responsible for the lack of money being recouperated via this loan.

    But no let's jump straight to blaming students.
