    What? I though education was free. --- Im also a Bernie supporter.

    Jokes aside though, this is not a nice developement, but not nearly as high as US Uni costs. They're in outer space.
    I can agree 8 months for me is $23,000 or £16,100 (equal to £24,150 per year)
    plus other living expenses so it about £100,000 to spend a year out there

    More.......and more...............and more................until the government requires you to sell yourself to them

    This is one situation where the free market principles of economics should apply. Most universities and their courses need to be shut, admissions numbers slashed. There should NOT be this many people going to university(neglecting the fact so many study degrees deemed useless just because its "their passion"). It defies supply and demand economics.

    I have studied TEF to a higher detail and while the hike in fees is a very annoying thing it will do a lot to improve the quality of teaching at universities, improve diversity and prevent this idle trade off at top universities in apathetic academics taking fees and giving out degrees like candy with very little challenge.
