  • Tuition Fees rise in the UK.

    The UK Parliament has officially voted in favour of raising the university tuition fees.

    For some courses that cost £6000 per annum, this will rise to £9000 I believe.

    The student population aren't pleased, especially as they felt they had been betrayed by a certain Nick Clegg (Lib. Dem). They have held live, [violent] protests at the parliament in London today.

    More graduates will be leaving with debt, even after a decade after leaving university, students calculated.

    I have calculated that this increase will force me to cease to update my vBulletin installations - with the VAT and the tuition fees to pay, if indeed, I go to university. I'd rather force the investment into the long term, than pay for a long time after university. It is a sad day of defeat for students.

    Now, adults, what do you think of this news?

      Well protests, which are protests with so much protest.

      That's such a convoluted sentence.

          Erm, for me, the fees have tripled. Try putting that in your budget, and see how far you go - given that you're not eligible for maintenance, your scholarship is now redundant. You're forced to loan. You pay for your transport, food, education, will not work because businesses cannot afford you. Yep, this is a great thing. Oh, and taxes are increasing as well.

              At least you may have a job! Job prospects here still aren't the best.

                    the course I will want to do is that intense, you can't really afford to do work on the side, of any nature. I've seen people try, and give the work up.

                        Thanks, here's my breakdown for first year, in GBP:

                        £6,000 + £15,000

                        Years 2-5

                        £6,000 + £25,000

                        £6,000 is the minimum, they'll probably charge more.
