    hmmm... i don't think it's as bad as it sounds, just look at the price they expect a pint and cinema tickets to be... i think it shows more about the level of inflation

    Isn't graduating with £45k debt but earning £52k in a similar ratio to graduating with ~£15k debt but earning £22k?

    These statistics are meaningless - they're simply the same figures as nowadays increased to allow for inflation etc.

    It's exactly the same as someone graduating now with £16k debt and earning £21k which will be about the going rate especially when top-up fees are introduced.

    But when you're earning £256,543 a year and houses cost £5 million for a 3 bed terrace, £48,000 seems like a bargain
