    Hi there.

    I'm a Scottish student and I'm currently in my second semester of third year, studying an Honours degree in business. My course is four years and I chose to do this semester abroad in America, which is where I am right now. Now that I'm here and even though I've only been here a short while, I'm starting to dread going back home and I've been thinking of doing my last year abroad - I'm open to American, Canadian and Australian Universities.

    Now, the way it's been put to me is that if I left at the end of third year, I'd come out with just an ordinary Bachelors degree without honours. So If I wanted to continue studying abroad at the end of this term, would I then have to look into graduate schools as apposed to continuing a bachelors for another year here? Since honour degree courses aren't as common here, I'm just not entirely sure how this would work if I wanted to do this. I've spoken to American students on four-year courses and they're coming out with a Bachelors, whereas if I completed my four years at home in Scotland, I'd leave with a Bachelors with Honours.

    If anyone can offer some insight, I'll be extremely grateful!

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
