    How likely is it that uni's will start charging more than £9000 per year? Will there be a knock on effect for masters degrees too?

    It's very likely unless the white paper doesn't make it through the commons.

    Rises should only be small to allow for inflation though (so it wont shoot up to £10k+ for a while yet). It's set to apply for 2017 entry at the moment (so shouldn't impact on continuing students only new students)

    If anything this should help prevent masters degrees being expensive - masters courses are sometimes used to subsidise undergraduate courses where the income hasn't increased in line with inflation for nearly 5 years now.
