    I like to stay neutral on these things cos there's always gonna be a good and not so good university. BUT wow I cant believe South Bank wants to charge (near enough) the full £9000 tuition fee :confused: it's not even in a mid-table position, it's right at the bottom.
    What are your views on this?...

    London South Bank can make the claim that its degrees are well worth the money, more so than a lot of other universities that are charging 9K per year:

    Perhaps league tables ain't everything?

    As mentioned they can (and do) justify this on the grounds that graduates have reasonable career prospects (employment rate and starting salary better than some Russell and 1994 Group universities and also better than some other post-1992s who have announced fees of a higher level). More than two thirds of their courses are professionaly accredited.

    They have quite a working class intake/intake of students for non-traditional backgrounds. So they will seek to invest money into even greater bursaries.

    I get the feeling that my uni is waiting until we're heavily into exam season before announcing it's fees so there are less protests. Sneaky buggers.

    Just got an student announcement from Newcastle Uni saying that fees (unsurprisingly) will be set to £9000 from 2012 onwards.

    They've let current students and staff know first and a press release will follow. Probably by tomorrow.

    Thanks - looks like it's properly announced now too: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/press.office/pr...fees-proposals

    So I've added it to the map.

    I've also added BSMS and Birkbeck to the map.

    I just wasn't sure what specifically you were referring to

    But basically, it was the high cost at so many institutions that you found 'depressing'. I personally agree

    So if higher fees are not good, then what is the solution, given that higher fees of around £6500-£7500 are needed just to offset the cuts in teaching funding from central Government. With those funding cuts universities would not be able to function on the same level they do now if they don't increase the fees. Do you think the funding cuts should not have happened?

    I personally think 80% cut in university funding is the most stupid educational move this government could have achieved. UKwide research, for our population, outstrips almost any nation apart from America. What it will do is create more LSE/Durham cases; going to dodgy sources to secure income and relying on rich international students to pay the bills. Funding tuition fees is an investment that reaps rewards for the government in a highly educated citizenry who can be part of the 'knowledge economy' people keep banging on about


    However the cat's out the bag now and no government will reverse tuition fees. We're going down the route to an American style higher education system, where people are locked into ridiculous debts which means that employers can do all sorts of horrible things and people won't leave because they have debt approaching 6 figures hanging over their heads. Lovely
