Yes the schedule of the White Paper calls for policy implementation ready for the academic year beginning Sep 2006. However, it is looking likely that the Commons vote will be extremely narrow because lots of Labour members have said they will not vote for it.

And reduce the number of places, thus restricting access to higher education.

And cut taxes, and increase teachers pay, and sort out the pension crisis and invest more in the NHS and give money to people who want private health care and education.

Therefore Tory policy =

Take in less money
Spend more money.

Would top up fees affect those who had already started? I would be due to start in 2005, so would it be likely that many people my age reject deferred entry so as to avoid said fees?

Lol yup

trying to be all things to all ppl

if only politicians would admit that the only way to improve public services is to invest, and investment requires tax rises.

no it would not affect you - you would come under the current upfront fees and loans system

No you should be able to take a gap year and it not affect you. When fees were initially introduced in 1997 the government tried to charge gap year students but they were challenged and eventually some legal reason was found why they couldn't do it. But I'm not sure, and they might cover their backs next time.

I actually agreed with everything he said in it!!! I think that it's important that we don't just concentrate on academic qualifications. If you look at places like Germany, they have *very* high quality vocational training and it can lead to work that is extremely well paid and very respected. I think we should remember that vocational does NOT mean remenial!!!
