    so because my mother is now classed as disabled and my parents need benefits to actually support my family, I'm not allowed to accept my offer to attend a Russell Group university with a student loan? Is that your point? because it seems to me you're just unfairly discriminating and prejudicing against others for no overwhelming reason except because of their wealth or lack thereof. .. just sayin'.
    unfortunately yes. you could atleast try and support your family then go onto uni in about a years time instead of abandoning them now... poor/ middle class people are so selfish

    extremely! troll elsewhere, please

    but all the best as well!
    Hopefully the fee rise won't affect me too much, but it's pretty difficult for most.
    regarding Essex, I think people have just assumed that because of it's location, the perceptions of Essex itself and its relatively low profile in the media, the university isn't as 'good' per se. Still, shouldn't be judging!

    i wouldnt be surprised if atleast 30 unis charged the full amount. its good that their charging more, the poor/ middle class be going to uni anymore or if they do go, it would be to a cheaper uni
    *they're

    If you're going to act like a pretentious snob, at least get the act right.

    The major issue is that if some universities start charging lower fees than others then the difference between good and bad universities will become even more VAST! No institution aspires to be a 2nd class university hence all with a VERY small minority WILL charge the full £9000; this is inevitable!

    What's the difference between now and in 2012? If the poor 'can't afford to go to uni' now, then they can't when the fees go up...you pay £0 up front. The system is actually much easier if you are 'poor'!

    If I could go to Oxford/Cambridge/another elite university and have to pay £9,000 I would rather do so than be paying £6,000 and going to a lesser university.

    Why can't everyone have a fair chance at going to university despite their social class?

    No uni wants to be '2nd class' but let's be honest we know which are good and which are bad - if you're only looking at how much they charge as a pointer to how good they are then you're a bit silly anyway.
