    What? Are you an idiot? It doesn't matter what kind of job you get, you pay it back based on your income, not job type.
    Secondly, of course you can still earn a substantial wage. Imagine you get £25,000 in your job annually. You're gonna be paying 9% of (25000-21000), so £360 a year. Does that seem so substantial to you, especially that considering under the old system you'd be paying back £900 a year if you're on £25,000.
    Everyone pays back less per month, most people will just be paying for longer.
    Umm, 9% of 25k a year is 2250 pounds...?

    anyone put off by the fees rise shouldnt have been going to uni in the first place
    the fees are done fairly, unless you earn over 30k average in your life your going to pay back less than the current system.
    Student finance debt isn't a real debt and you dont have to worry about it

    From a kid who does Economics I would say the demand for Universities in general is price inelastic (demand will not respond much to a change in price) for many reasons. I'll still be going and I'm sure a lot of other people will have not changed their minds either.

    It's 9% of your earnings above £21,000, so 9% of £4000. Otherwise, where would the incentive to go from a £20k a year job to a £21k job be.

    :yep: I will still go to university. I have aspirations and I am damn sure that no piece of legislature , no matter how big it is , will stop me pursuing them.
    Nothing will stop me from doing it. :borat:
    Although the unis I want are probably going to charge the maximum £9,000. :getmecoat:

    But think about it, generally speaking, those who do Mickey Mouse courses are usually those from poorer-income backgrounds.
    What evidence are you basing this claim on?

    ****ing welsh, you do realise you, along with the Scots are living out of our back pockets?

    **** off with your negs, you foreign *******s.
    Cae dy geg, y twpsyn cenfigennus

    P.S. It's strange that you call us foreigners, when the Welsh language is one of the most ancient that still exists in the world today and was being spoken in Britain long before English was...

    Can't believe people are upvoting this? Racism against the Welsh is okay then.

    Well, I'll make no qualms. Says it all about the English. And "foreign"? Funny that you say that actually, the word "Welsh" actually comes from an Old English word meaning something along the lines of "foreigner", despite the fact that we were on this island a thousand years before you... times never change eh.

    It's not the most eloquently put but it is grossly unfair.

    How exactly is it unfair? If you're moaning about English taxpayers' money going towards the Welsh budget (as well as every other taxpayer in the UK and Wales vice versa), that's how this works. Californians don't moan about it.

    What we do with our budget is our business. You haven't given us extra money just so we can keep fees down you know, we have to make sacrifices in other areas. Luckily we have a government in power that actually cares about things like that.

    ... Californians? What do you mean I'm not exactly interested in the niceties of politics. All I think is that it's **** that the English have to pay more than the Welsh and Scotish to be educated by the same institutions when we're all part of the UK

    Just added to my above post, take a gander.

    Well c'est la vie I'm afraid, maybe you guys shouldn't have voted the tories in. We're all part of the UK yep, but we have different governments. There are federations all over the world, I don't know why people in England seem to find it so hard to get their heads around this.

    I mentioned California because they generate a massive surplus and subsidise other areas of the USA.
