Why need it be public? :confused:

Realistically, most people are not going to be earning £40,000 after six years graduation.

depends how you plan to live, and what sort of job you do. if you're a doctor earning 15 grand then thats obviously not right, (not that it would happen anyway) similarly if you're a parttime shop assistant or something, and earn like 30,000, then thats just ridiculous.

if you wanna live where your partner is going to be earning as well, and just wanna be comfortable, then i reckon 30000 each is plenty.

Perhaps not a medical doctor, but lecturers can start off in the region of £12,000. JRFs can be as little as £9,000

You misunderstood, it is simply out of interest. Also ppl tend to make it private only when the question is perceived as a private one, and what I wanted to see what you fell into that group.

It depends where you live, if I wanted to stay in the area where I live now, a 3 bed terrace house on my block (the owner died) is on the market for £185k in need of modernisation. This is a tpyicaly ordinary boring house, so I would need on average £200k to buy a house.

This means I would have to earn around £60k a year or buy a house in a cheap area.

My parents earn £21k between them and we are not exactly poor, although certainly not rich.

(my parents can't afford nice cars or holidays but can afford to put food on the table)

If I was married (thus has joint income) then £30k should be more than enough to buy a decent house and live a good life style. Reastilcally I doubt I would ever earn more than £30k.

you want to do dentistry right? so if you become a successful dentist, you will earn big money...probs 70 000+ but it depends how well you do and in which area you are in. ofcourse, if you have settled down in the middle of a little hamlet, you wont earn as much when in the heart of London.

£20,000 will be fine.

I can't wait for those who voted for massive salaries to find out you wont be getting them.

£20,000 would be more than great, as if you find a partner with the same salary, that's £40,000 between you. As well as my property developer ideas. :cool:

Its not as much as you think though, it sounds a like a lot but its not. My parents earn £22k between them and some times to struggle to find the mortage money which is only £40k. (about £350 a month)

Our generation are basicaly facing massive property time bomb, apart from the higher earners most us may be renting all our lives.:mad:

I guess £30k a would be enough for me as I could afford to buy a 1 bed room flat as longs as its not brand new with £100k.

At the moment the average salary for Britain is 22k, which is a reasonable amount, and anyone who earns more than this is very lucky.

Decent, really depends on the person, and thier idea of decent, if they like luxaries and expensive life style, they need more money to lead thier " decent life"

My cousin got a First from Cambridge, and got his PhD last year. In his job for the last year he was on £18 000, next year he's becoming a lecturer elsewhere, and I assume he'll get more than that, but not much. But I guess it's what he wants to do.

Hopefully 6 years after I graduate I'll be an SpR, so on ~£40 000, I think. I'll be 31 though :eek:
