University Tuition Fees – The Facts
MP’s have now voted and by a majority of 21 the proposed tuition fees have been passed into law.
The whole business of tuition fees has been whipped by interested parties into another poll tax style campaign.
What are the real facts behind these tuition fees, for example the fees are paid by graduates and not students
The Coalition Government is reforming higher education funding to ensure universities have the money they need.
Following the advice of the independent funding review, set up by the last Labour Government, the upper limit on tuition fees is being raised to £9,000. Students will pay nothing up front, and will only start paying the money back once they’ve left university and are earning over £21,000 a year.
A lot of myths have been circulated about the plans. On this site, you’ll get the facts.
