How to Reduce the Burden of Student Loans

We're pretty sure this isn't how a student loan works...

Meet Catherine Byrne, a model from Essex, England, who reportedly spent a £14,000 ($21,570) student loan on plastic surgery, Botox and fillers.



When she applied to study psychology at the University of East London, she revealed to The Sun that she had "absolutely no intention of studying or getting a degree."



Byrne failed her year, but was able to get back into school, apparently using the excuse that she was "overwhelmed."



With a new student loan for the new year, Byrne also spent the money on clothes and a new car and told The Sun "that it would have been a waste to spend it on boring books."

Unsurprisingly, Byrne now has a £17,572 ($27,074) loan she will need to pay back, "if and when she earns more than £17,000 ($26,193) a year."
