With tuition fees being introduced in 2006, wont there be a massive rush for everyone to go to university from 2004.

I would presume many people will not be taking planned gap years so competition for places (starting 2004) will be more competitive and it maybe that uni's will be stricter on their grades.

Although we will have to pay the new fees in 2006 (our 3rd years)!!!

Oh no, in 2006? I though they'd come in in 4 years, after my 4-year course is finished. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! !!!! :mad:

1) Yes, apparently its 65,000 more people that year.

2) I thought it was only applicable for that year group i.e. if you get in in 2005, you don't pay for the term of your stay in uni.

Number 2 is correct

I wrote an article on top up fees for my school website - http://www.saintolaves.net

That's what I thought and was hoping. I assumed that I wouldn't be in the position where I had to pay tuition fees.

If you get into uni before 2006, you won't have to pay the top-up fees. It's only those starting on or after 2006 who have to pay them.
Phew. I'm glad of that! Just had to make sure.

Are you sure about this, so if we are in our last year at uni when fees are introduced we'll still get to pay the same rate as before (around 1150)

I'll have 2 years left after they're introduced.

If you want a gap year then take one...the new system actually means that students will have a lot more money to live off while they're studying in exchange for repaying student loans for a bit longer (but not much longer because they get written off after 25 years...if you weren't planning to go into a job earning over £30k very soon after graduating it's unlikely you will be repaying much more at all).
