Professional study costs reach new highs

Published: Friday, 17 August 2007   Category: Government policies

Study costs for professional careers in areas such as medicine and architecture have been subject to large increases, new research has discovered.

According to figures from the Children's Mutual, the costs for studying to become a doctor, solicitor, engineer, architect or nurse have rocketed over the past 12 months.

The research included every likely expense such as accommodation and tuition as well as living costs and, according to the Children's Mutual, parents are set to foot a large proportion of the bill.

Statistics show that the expense of training to become a doctor is now £68,300 while parents will have to fork out a large share of the £79,500 it will cost to study as an architect.

Prospective solicitors will be subject to fees of up to £56,000 and prospective engineers and nurses will be expected to pay £39,000 and £38,600 respectively.

Further research by the company suggests that the average total cost of a three year university course can be as much as £38,000.ADNFCR-1068-ID-18250010-ADNFCR
