      As long as there are loans/grants/bursaries available - I really do not mind.

      I wouldn't feel anything, because if they went up any more, there'd be outright rioting and the Govt would never get away with it (Hopefully)

      I think you didn't get what i meant, you are applying for 2011, so your opinion on the matter can be seen as irreverent cause this doesn't affect you. The government can do what it whats as long as it has support of its peers, "our" finances i don't understand? this is not your finances this is the money that has been loaned to you, if you don't like find some other sources of income solves both problems? tbh i find that you have easy, i m British and i get charge £10,498 year so tbh i don't see what all fuse is about

      This post has more irony than this thread has room for. Just as an interesting social experiment, can you post a thread stating how you think all those people who have protested etc, who will not be affected by the rise, shouldn't have done so because their view is irrelevant. Although to a large extent self satisfying, I would like to imagine the human race to be capable of at least some level of empathy - and to have these views respected.

      right, yeah :rolleyes:
      they could go up to 50k a year, as long as I can get a massive loan to cover it all that i'll then pay back later...

      150k of a persons earnings isn't that much is it..
      I mean, it'll be paid back in manageable payments, that changes everything.
      How many of these manageable payments you'll make and for how long doesn't matter

      I'd be annoyed and maybe a bit angry, if they affected me, that is, unless they also imposed some more things to counter the effect of these rises. So, basically, making it feel like you aren't paying so much and not getting yourself into debt that you just can't live with. I can't explain that very well.

        Oh come on, 50k a year? That's just unrealistic and it will never happen.

        As long as it's written off after x years, and I can get a full loan to cover it, I'd go to university even if it cost £1 million per year.

        Tution fee repayments could easily go up after you start repaying because the government can adjust the factors that determine the amount of interest you have to pay. For example, G Osborne has said that he wants to find a way of including housing costs in the way CPI is calculated. If he does this and CPI is higher then the amount of interest on the loan will have to go up.The govt could also "adjust" the threshold of 21k, either by changing it or not uprating it for inflation.

        For the amount of contact time I'd be getting, I'd vote with my feet. ****, I'm thinking of voting with my feet nwo depending on how my finances will work out. The student loan repayments would be taking cuts directly out of my salary for 30 years. That's not appealing to me AT ALL.

        Yeah, but there is also the (unlikely) situation that the loans get paid off (with interest) before the increases are imposed. But, unfortunately, that is unlikely.
