      We could all do with more money, especially when cost of living is going up.
      I’m lucky I don’t have any student debts.

      The job pays well enough. I do not know much about student debts but any debt can be paid off if you plan your finances well..like taking a set amount of money out to pay the debt each month even if it is as small as 20 pounds per month

      I was lucky that I only had a small student loan. If you’re worried about student debt you could always consider an apprenticeship. There are lots that will give you access to healthcare.

      I’m not eligible for a loan to do my course, because I have a previous degree. BUT. what I do know about student loans is that you don’t have to pay them back until you are getting a decent wage – so if you were on minimum wage you would not have to start paying your student loan back straight away. you don’t pay it back until you are own a reasonable salary (the student loans page online will be able to tell you what the level is) but even then it is not a huge amount that goes from your salary. I would say please don’t let student debt put you off following your passion

      Paid reasonably well. I suspect I have a good few years of paying off my student loan ahead, I think I will be able to pay it off over the course of my working career though.
