Well it pretty much works like a graduate tax already, except you get taxed if you drop out or refuse to finish the course - how would your system differ?

there are no tuition fees and tuition student loans. perhaps there are maintenance grants. but once you graduate there is no balance to be paid back you have to pay an additional tax on your salary for a period of time perhaps 20, 30 years

No, some degrees are worth more than others, and everyone paying the same tax wouldnt work, not to mention some degrees wont get u a job (at least one that will pay more, theres plenty of underemployed ppl)

it is a de facto graduate tax at the moment. it will stop being a graduate tax if the government introduces a stricter repayment policy (e.g. one similar to that of a bank's repayment policy for personal loans)

How about vastly less bureaucracy for both students and SFE?
