Student University Fees

Milliband has announced he will reduce tuition fees from £9000 to £6000. What difference will this make to students? He is to fund it by reducing tax release to higher earners.
Student Fees
Not a very well thought out policy.

Re: Student University Fees

Really expensive Uni courses like engineering will suffer badly just when the UK needs engineers.

Re: Student University Fees

The politicians should be looking to see why the UK Universities are so expensive for the minimal hours of lecturer/student contact. Over the past few years their salary costs have risen a a rate far greater than Joe Public.

Re: Student University Fees

At £9000 a year (or even £6000) is a university degree value for money?
I would much prefer to see Science, technology, engineering, chemistry and medical degrees subsidised.
One of the drawback to a 5 month lead in to an election, we well probably hear all manner of ludicrous announcements.
