    I was just wondering if the £9000 fee is a long term cap or whether, like the current system fees will be allowed to rise with inflation?

    Inflation at 2% could see these new fees rise by around £200 per year

    I presume so, universities costs will increase with inflation.

    It's just like how they increased to £3,000
    We could even see the cap removed.

    It has risen with inflation in the current system so I wouldn't be surprised if it did under the new one. Although with the maximum charge of £9,000 universities are obligated to show evidence of widening access although its safe to assume that the most reputable universities and courses will assume this rate. I have yet to see what their plans are for easing the pain of those less able to afford such fees, but APPARENTLY it is meant to be a more progressive system. I start medicine this september so as far as im concerned, it don't affect me *rubs it in well*

    As far as I know, it's a fixed cap, so won't rise with inflation - it will stay at £9000 until they decide to change it
