MPHEC releases report on graduate borrowing and debt patterns

December 6, 2020

The Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission (MPHEC) has released a report titled Class of 2012 Maritime University Graduates: Borrowing and Debt Six Years after Graduation. The study compared borrowing and debt repayment patterns among graduates who went on to pursue further education and those who did not. The study also focused on the contrast between Maritime students and those from outside the region. “Maritimers were more likely to borrow, and borrowed more, than graduates from outside the region, and graduates with parents who had completed a university degree were less likely to borrow, and they borrowed less, to finance their education,” said Catherine Stewart, CEO of MPHEC.
