    If you have to pay that much for a degree then you would have to pay it - if you want a degree you don't have much choice.

    Are we talking total of 3 years or £9,000 per year? I'd pay it either way... if I were promised a good job

    I think it means 3 years at £3000 a year.

    Yes, that's what the government is thinking of doing.

    Yep, a total of 3 years

    Year 1: £3,000 :confused:
    Year 2: £6,000 :eek:
    Year 3: £9,000

    For a piece of paper that can be easily faked.

    If that is what the government decides to do, what choice do you have if you want to get a degree? It would still be far cheaper than studying abroad.

    Plus people wouldn't have to pay until after they start earning, and those on modest incomes would only pay what they can afford.

    Seems reasonable enough .

    I agree, univerisities are massively under-funded as it is - they need the money from somewhere and I don't think it would be fair to make the general tax payer pay for it.

    why should the dustman further subsidise the doctor? If its going to come from anywhere it should be from the person receiving the private benefit.

    I completely agree...that is why I agree that students should have to pay more for their degree. We shouldn't put it on the general taxpayer as they may never wish to get a degree and so shouldnt have to pay.

    True. I think the person you were replying to means the same thing. Some people say that if someone does go to uni and gets a top-earning job that they will pay more tax but I think that's too simplified.

    For me it depends on my finanical circumstances etc. I would probably just go to a university that had lesser tution fees. This is the point I was getting at with my "Blair must be stopped" thread.

    The thing I disagree upon is varying fee levels depending on course and uni.

    Yeah, but it would be horrible if they all had the same price tag.



    University of Bums on Seats
    Arse-Elbow Differentiation = £1,100

    Oxford University
    Law = £1,100
