Can anybody tell me when these are going to be brought in? I haven't really paid much attention to it as it won't affect me, but now I'm curious.

Will they be brought in across the board or just to new students (ie, will students in third year when they are introduced have to pay them?)

They will be introduced in September 2006, this will affect applications next year however as nobody will want to take a gap year, so there will be stiff competition.
If you start University in September 2004 or 05 though, you will not be affected, you'll just have a lot of rich and very smart graduates following you into the work force

I alsways find it amazing how so many NUS members are members of the labour party, had the Tories intorduced any of this there would ahve been riots, as it is there is a quiet, and polite, oh no I don't think that is a good idea, sad really.

Exactly. Stupid NUS relying on conformity. "Oh, these people represent us, so why don't we sign every sheet of paper they give us". Great. Now they're trying to take us out of college, away from education on strike because of top up fees. Nice one, idiots.

I watch the news at 10, then switch over to newsnight at 10:20, I don't fully concentrate on ti like play darts or brush my teeth but it still sinks in I guess.

so, let me get this straight:

the £3000 fees and new payment provisions (if they get through parliament which it looks like they will) will be brought in in 2006. However, they will only apply to new students starting that year- so students already at uni (eg in years 2 and 3)will not be affected.

Is this right??

The Government is currently making changes to the funding system so if you are starting college or university in 2006 or later the system will look different.
ie the changes only apply to people STARTING a course in 2006

Guess you didn't notice the people marching through the city centre yesterday then. Apparently in Sheffield 500 students took control of the town hall.

Right, and how would skipping lessons/causing a riot/shouting/wasting money etc. change anything :rolleyes:
