Figures from a new YouGov survey says that while 86% of students are satisfied with the quality of their course, the majority of university students don't think that their £9,000 a year fees are justified.

62% of students said that the standard of education and the wages graduates earn are not enough to warrant the cost of English/Welsh degrees.

However, most students do believe that their job prospects are increased and that they'll earn a higher salary.

What do you think about your uni fees? Are they worth it? Do you think your job prospects will be higher?

It is a difficult question to answer. I suppose that depending upon your university experience you may have a different view. I myself haven’t gone yet so I can’t really speak for ‘value for money’. I think that your job prospects can be improved but it depends upon the field you want to go into. One thing that does irritate me is that people, mainly politicians, refer to it as a tax to pay for the privilege of going to university. Those who went to university when it was free don’t pay such a ‘tax’. They had that privilege too and yet they aren’t ‘taxed’ for it.

no fee for education is feasible, education SHOULD be free for all. Its a choice to go to university. Higher income after university is not guaranteed. Even being able to get a decent job with a university degree is not guaranteed. However, I do not see my university fees as a debt, I don't think my job prospects will be higher - its up to me to prove to employers that I am worth taking on.
