    hi, i am just wondering what the exact reasons for the initial introduction of tuition fees in the late 1990's was and why they are increasing to such huge amounts in 2012?

    i am in my third year of university and am doing my final project on the affects of increasing tuition fees on student applications and need to find the above information. i have gathered the increases are due to cuts in the public sector because of the current deficit but am struggling to find out why they were first introduced so if any1 could provide me with any useful links to help me answer these questions i would really appreciate it

    thank you

    Because it was politically safe to do so and cut the cost of higher education so money could go else where.

    It also freed up money to encourage higher take up of uni.
