A report published today (Tuesday) by Universities UK looks at the likely impact that changes to the variable fees system might have on universities, students and government.

The report, Changing Landscapes: future scenarios for variable tuition fees, considers a limited range of future scenarios for variable fees, funding and student support that might apply following the Government’s independent review of fees in 2009.

As part of the review, suggestions have been made to increase tuition fees to £7000 per year, leaving the average student with £32,400 worth of debt after three years of study.

The report can be found here:

We need to increase pressure placed on our elected officials to ensure that this never comes into effect in Wales. Education is a right to all and future undergraduates should not be crippled with debt upon finishing University.

We as Cymru X urge anyone that has not already contacted their AM to do so immediately.
