    Yeah what a joke.

    You are effectively driving people out of education because of the debt.

    When fees were increased from £3000 to £9000 the numbers in HE went up. Why should this be any different?

    Correlation doesn't mean cause.

    I am afraid that doesn't add anything useful where what ghajok45 is suggesting is that the further development of an existing policy will cause a reversal in the outcomes from that policy. There may well be a mechanism why that is the case but ghajok45 hasn't identified it, and there is the impression that he is extrapolating from a trend that he believes exists but for which there is in fact no current evidence.

    Who cares it doesn't change anything.

    University costs don't hold people back with good grades - seems like a lucky coincidence? No

    University costs don't stop anyone from going to Uni, only people's grades do that.

    Yeah, this is the one that Warwick SU is voting on sabotaging at the moment.


    But otherwise, this has exactly the same problem as the previous raise: the government is going to lose money. Again. Because they're still working off those projections where the average tuition fee would be £7,200 (rather than £8,900).
