    Does anyone else think what Blair is doing with tuition fees is wrong (I mean the proposed top ups). I'm in enough debt already so if I had my fees bumped up I'd be in real sh*t! When blair went to uni he was financed by grants which he never had to pay back so it seems a bit hypocritical!

    There is a bit of a funding crisis at Universities, which need to be solved. I don't think a Uniform raise in top-up fees is the way to go however.

    I'm all for the proposals but don't agree with varied fees for particular unis and courses. Also I'd like to see concrete evidence about the package of measures to ensure that poorer students will get grants etc...

    I just think it's a big U-turn on policy considering Labour said in their manifesto that they wouldn't introduce top up fees. Politicians eh. you cant trust em!

    Yeah, it is very annoying that they've made such a U-turn on it. But something needs to be done to solve the funding problems in universities, or all the top academics will just be haemorrhaged (sp?) to America and we won't be able to compete on the world scale any more.

    I guess sometimes we all have to raise the bar whether we like it or not.
    It isn't really fair though. Pity really.
