3. Student debt

The median respondent was in debt by £7,000 (excluding mortgage) on the date of their qualification, or was expecting to be. (UK median debt = £7,000; UK mean debt = £8,486)

Analysing this data by UK country shows England with the highest mean debt of £8,732. However, the differences between the UK countries are not statistically significant; the sample sizes from outside England are too small to discount that the differences may simply be down to random chance.
