Students face a “perilous way of life”…

Just when your thoughts were on getting the exam results and moving students into the next stage of their studies, a warning about making sure they can manage student debt comes from Nigel Boobier, an insolvency practitioner with Osborne Clarke in Bristol.

It might sound boring to any young person, but it is worth checking on the basics and make sure  budgeting skills and financial ability is equal to the task.
