Graduates increasingly in the red

Employers
face a debt saddled workforce with one in ten students expecting to still be in
debt as many as 10 years after graduation.

One
in five UK students are so concerned about debt that they may not be able to
graduate, and the same number have to work to make ends meet, according to
Hobsons’ National Student Survey.

The
Government estimates that students will leave university with an average debt
of £5,600.

On
average students work 19 hours a month in paid jobs. Seven per cent work 76
hours – more than double the time spent studying or in lectures.
