Apparently, in the US, the average amount borrowed to pay for one year of college tuition has risen from $5,075 (£3,255) in 2007-08 to $7,874 (£5,050) in 2011-12. The rise is forcing more and more students to forgo expensive schools and to live at home.

Meanwhile, in Britain, university applications fell by 9 per cent, or 50,000 places, as top-rate £9,000-a-year tuition fees came in to play last year - and some universities are already reporting falls in applications for undergraduate degrees starting in the autumn.
