I read somewhere that Jeremy Corbyn would make uni fees drop slightly in 2021, but the new repayment method will mean that the student will end up paying back more of it, whereas atm most students barely pay back any of it before it's written off. So basically I don't want this to happen lol. Is this actually confirmed to happen?

Jeremy Corbyn isnt PM yet. There will be a general election before then.

That's not really what I'm asking. Is it confirmed that this change is actually going to happen?

How can the change be guaranteed if the bloke pushing it is not in power?

Maybe I misunderstood that it was due to Corbyn. The article 999tigger linked only really mentioned Theresa May. That's not really relevant though- do you know if the change is confirmed or just a hypothetical thing?

I don't know 100%, but I do know that the institutions for which I work are preparing for fees to be lowered, so that might be taken as some sort of indicator.

Are you on about this independant report that suggested an alternative student finance system that came out 2/3 months ago with a £7K loan/year but higher repayments & interest?

Its not in Labour policy or Tory. Its just a report atm. & for the average student they would be worse off, so i doubt it would get implemented. Also JC couldn't do anything in 2021 (unless a no confidence vote, then win an election but tbh thats not going to happen)
