    I thought that the cap of £9000 was coming into place in 2012. But then I just looked on a BBC article and it said 2013. Which year is it meant to be coming in?

    It will affect all students who will start their courses from 2011/12 onwards, i.e. all the people who apply next year.

      This is the lib dems we are talking about.

      I reckon they will bring in something to charge current university students more as well.

      They are nothing but liars.

      Remember a few years back when Clegg was banging on about scrapping fee's altogether.

      Damn I'd love to punch him.

      No it won't.

      It comes into force in 2012.

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-11483638

      When will the proposals take effect?

      Ministers intend to bring in the new system in time for it to take effect from September 2012. Students applying in 2011 who defer entry to 2012 will have to pay the increased fees, and there are concerns that there will be a rush for places in 2011 before the new regime kicks in. But students who have begun their courses before 2012 will not be affected in their later years of study.

      A vote is needed in both houses of parliament for fees to be raised, and is expected to take place before Christmas.

      No need to apologize as I know there is a lot of misinformation flying round due to the governments inability to actually come straight to the point about the whole thing.

      I just don't want students on here being misinformed and not going in 2011 because they think they will have higher fee's.

      Basically, if you can go in 2011 then go otherwise a year later you'll be paying possibly double for the same education and qualification. Also, don''t defer entry as those that do will still pay increased fee's.

      2011 entry is definitely the option you should take if you can.

      Nothing has been announced as yet.

      I bet this is another major thing they are trying to hide and slyly vote through.

      As a Welsh student I feel gutted for the English. Its a disgrace what their government is doing to them. I would definitely riot.

      What about the fact that under the government plans you will actually be paying much less as a graduate (and at a much higher starting salary of £21,000 rather than £15,000 under the current system) and the obviously these are LOANS which you don't have to pay up front and which will be cancelled after 30 years. People seem happy to ignore the details published by several independent groups which show that graduate repayments for the poorest 30% will actually fall.

      Technically, it hasn't been voted on yet, so it still may not happen at all.
