University of Nottingham graduate Simon Crowther’s post on Facebook went viral this week, after he revealed how much interest is being added to his debt. He’s part of the first wave of graduates to have left university after paying £9,000-a-year fees. His total debt, a year after leaving college, jumped to £41,976 by the end of March, with the interest racking up by as much as £180 a month. Crowther claims he was mis-sold the loan and “cheated by a government who encouraged many of us to undertake higher education, despite trebling the cost of attending university”.
