Medical students consider quitting due to debts

Its a common story that we hear time and time again – that medical students have got no money, they are hard up, and struggling.

Reading this article today it seems the average cost of debt is almost £7,000, with some students in excess of £10,000. But in the grand scheme of things – does this pale into significance once you consider salary potential?

As a previous medical student i was part of a culture which was very much about living for the present and not worrying too much about the future in terms of debt. And i’m still paying it off!

We would be interested in hearing other peoples debt stories – is it a big factor for you, or is it one to stick your head in the sand about?
