    If you start university in 2011, does an English student pay 3 grand for the length of the degree, or is it 3 grand for the first year, then 6 - 9 grand for the remaining years of the degree? Thanks if anyone knows the answer!

    By the way didn't know where to put this so sorry if it is in the wrong place.

    I think you pay 3000 each year for the length of the degree.

    the rise in tuition fees wont affect you at all as long as you start your degree next year- the changes wont come into effect until 2012/2013 year. i think the actual sum is £3375 for the 2011-2012 year it goes up slightly each year in line with something- maybe inflation im not sure? but you will be paying around the £3000 mark each year for your degree so dont worry!

    Thanks for the answer - so going to university means you could save up to about £18000 if you go in 2011 rather than in 2012?

    erm yeh i guess so, obviously the rise in fees hasnt defo been sorted yet because they need to vote on it, but i think its bound to go through some how.

    what i will add though is that if the changes do go ahead you wont have to start paying it back until you earn over 21,000 once graduated- thats an increase of 6,000

    But you''ll be paying a minimum interest rate of CPI at least as the interest rate unlike the current rate of bank rate plus 1%. The more you earn the higher the rate will be until you will be paying CPI plus 3%. Whereas currently it is bank rate plus 1% = 1.5%.
