Interview with ABC News: Are degrees worth the debt?

Amid the excitement and relief at finishing a university degree, students are also graduating with tens of thousands of dollars in debts.

One national education consultancy group says it’s impossible for students to know whether their degree will be worth it in end, because there isn’t any long-term data available on job outcomes and salaries for Australians with degrees.

Good Education Group is urging prospective students to look at all of their options to make sure they’re making smart financial choices, and not just following the crowd.

Head of Data and Analytics for Good Education Group, Ross White, speaks with Isabel Dayman from ABC News on whether a university degree will pay off for students in the long run.
