    About £37000+ if I stay in the UK.
    About 7900€ (around £6800) if I go to a Dutch uni.
    RIP.
    Tfw you want to get a degree, but by the time you finally start your life you're in so much debt.

    A 4 year masters degree for a student taking the maximum loan will be looking at £68000+

    £51,600 if I do three years
    £68,800 if I do four years

    add £20,000 more to the last value and I can buy the house I live in

    Can't remember how much I owe for maintenance loans, but I owe around 10-11k for tuition fees (Welsh students don't have to pay 9k a year).

    It's not too bad tbh, you only start paying it back once you're earning over a certain amount, and you pay a little bit per month (kinda like a extra tax). Ive just started paying mine back, I look forward to the day it's all paid off :lol:

    I never took out a maintenance loan but after the 3 years of tuition my debt grew to 28.5k i think, i had 5k lying around at the time so brought it down to 23k for now.

    You guys should really check how much you debt is, because you wont be on 27k lol.

    How long did it take to grow to that amount, was it after you finished uni or during uni?

    I'd say by the time I've graduated from this second degree I'll be about 80k+ in debt. Yay me!

    I thought you couldn't borrow for a second degree. I suppose owing 80k won't affect you much for than say 40 or 50k since you will still be paying the same back each month and then it gets wiped after 30 years (apparently). Though the government make changes all the time.
