Two Year Fashion Degrees – Slice a third off your student debt!
Are you serious about studying but struggling with the idea of University debt?
There has been much in the press lately of rising University costs and increased debt on graduation, with some forecasts predicting Uni students will leave with loans of up to £50k once they finish studying.
