Comments on: Tuition row: The beginning of the end for the coalition? Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:37:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: sey51 Wed, 08 Dec 2010 16:01:34 +0000 As yet I haven’t heard any references as to how the graduates are going to manage once they have left uni, apart from not having to repay the student loans until they are earning £21k. This is all well & good apart from the fact that all students graduating from uni will find it virtually impossible to get onto the property ladder. My son is at Med school at the moment and under the present system will still leave with a debt of approx £50k. Under the new system Medical graduates will have a debt of approx £70k. How many financial institutions will want to provide these graduates with a mortgage when they are already £50k-£70k in debt?
