What's your obsession with "flipping burgers"? Seems a bit of a festering point with you.

Does it matter whether they struggle to pay it back or don't manage to pay it back? It's creating a two-tier system where only the rich will be able to study or they make up the gap with overseas workers.

The NHS isn't known for upping salaries to attract doctors, is it? More likely to cut staff and budgets.
I have no intention of a 2 tier system, just that loans are given out where there is a 50% chance of repayment. I can see less philosophy & media studies courses.

Whilst allowing less intelligent members of the population to go to University was a noble idea, however if they cant pick a subject that has a 51% chance of giving them a higher paying job, enough to repay their student debts, then taxpayers money is being wasted.
