Unfortunately, even A grade students have had to put their life on hold as there are no university places left! Why?? It is possible that students are trying to get into uni this year because of the impending rise in tuition fees. I mean, no one wants to pay over £9,000 a year for a university place! And in the current economic crisis, can they afford to?
This could mean that in a few years time, people will be disinclined to go to university. If this happens, will we end up with a moronic society, of people in dead-end jobs and less skilled professionals??
Universities are overflowing with students and so lecturers can expect more pressure and bigger seminar groups. Could this mean a decrease in the quality of education at university?
There is something that has confused me throughout the discussions and political policies concerning the alterations made to university and tuition fee costs. The people in charge of the country, and those who have decided to increase the tuition fee by £6,000 got their university education free. So why are we expected to pay these extortionate costs? Moneygrabbing.
So when tuition fees are anything up to £9,000 a year, will you still plan to go to university? Or will you settle for a college education, apprenticeship or a normal 9-5 job? Politicians are naive if they think that the cost will not affect prospective students’ decisions in the future.
