yes they are high but the thing is, they arer only high because the univeristy gets into debt for each student becasue of how much it costs for them too, and also most people end up not paying them anyway, especially if they find themselves job less, becasue they are overly qualified for current jobs.  another thing is that you dont even notice it coming out of your pay packet/wages, becasue a small percentage is taken each time you get paid.  :) x

well not really becasue alot of bright people are still studyin at our uk unis, only 4 people though, out of the thousands of people in the uk :) but people from other countries are coming to our uk uni's which i dont think is right really? and i dont think we should go over to other uni's just becasue its free.  unless necessary they should study in their home town so to speak

About the first comment.. how do the uni's get in debt if students pay for everything themselves :| i dont see why students, who are skint anyway, have to bail the unis out? Also, the people who dont pay anything because theyre jobless.. yeah theyre not paying off their student debt, but theyre also getting into more debt from everything else, its not really a bonus tbh :SSS

Recently it was released that most unis will be cutting down over 20,000 students over several years as they are losing a lot of money especially when most people apply for student loans which the university is providing. Studying abroad can be a good option because it would be cheaper, but not for foreign students coming to study here as they have to pay over £10,000 people now.

I agree with vdfsfds.... uni students have to pay for accomodation and everything.

Even if they take out a loan, the loan will pay the university so they aren't losing any money.

Also, university loans have added interest which, according to my teacher, is added to the loan the day that you start university.... so unfair :(

you could argue that it does matter because more really bright people will study abroard and the uk will lose some good results. for example, 4 people just turned down places at oxbridge to go to america because, appart from travel, it will be free.

if more people go abroard, the people with Es and Ds will end up going to oxbridge and all the A*s will leave and other countries will get the credit.

Students would prefer not to go to unis because they don't want to pay or be in debt after they finish their degree, which might not even get them a job since the "job world" is very competitive so students end up going with the choice of not even bothering to go to uni

I don't think that it makes much of a difference, you don't pay it off until you're earning a certain amount anyway. People should be more concerned with the cost of living and resources.

I dont get how before, uni's only needed £3000 to support their students.. but now they need £9000.. we're not in that big of a recession to need 3 times the amount.. just for tuition?

Plus, if that extra money is needed because theyre in debt, shouldnt it be a gradual increase.. rather than increasing it a lot in the space of year? its pretty unfair that before last year, people got to pay less for the exact same thing

Yes but, the money wouldn't matter when you have a job. The bank will slowly take the loans back so you will not be in debt. You wont even notice the bank doing this. However i do agree that uni should not be that expensive, we are students not millionares :)

Good education shouldn't just be for the wealthy people. £9000 is a lot, even if you're taking student loans. Obv the world can't be completely fair, but this has just made it more unfair.

yes, they are high, very high indeed however the way universitys work nowadays make it much easier on grad students. for example, for me to do forensic science and criminology at uni, itll cost me around £50,000 since im doing 2 degrees. BUT when i get out and graduate, i dont haveto pay any back untill im earning at lease £15,500 a year, and its only in an increase in tax so i can still live on my wages, so dont get so down ppl

I think they are high, but it depends on what you do with them, if that makes sense. For instance, you could take advantage of this and get really could grades, or you could just waste it. But, that's only my opinion :)
