University is held up as a brilliant life experience – but there’s no getting away from the fact that it is an expensive undertaking.

Questions from this particular session have touched on issues from the government’s expectation that parents will top up loans to how the final loan amount is calculated, and listeners have been signposted to other trusted sources that can provide further information and guidance.
