University Top-Up Fees Proposal

Universities possibly charging 10,000 a year for tuition: the government is proposing removing the current cap on tuition fees. Amazing how this is all panning out. BBC News ran a feedback forum, and the results are pretty much all against this idea. Quite a few individuals also suggested that universities are becoming ‘the norm’, with the government’s pledge to get 50% through uni in the near future.

Margaret Hodge, the Higher Education Secretary explained to Universities UK, that university graduates have a better chance at higher paid employment from leaving uni. This is correct, however lets not forget that as salaries rise, the taxes do to, so the government gets a higher return from higher paid employees anyway!

It’s a scary amount of money. Fortunately by the time this might be passed through I’ll be out of uni.
