When and who introduced tuition fees?

I wonder where students and their families should be looking when they find themselves so much in debt when they start their new career?

Tuition fees in the UK are currently up to £9,250 a year. Obviously on top of this, students are likely to get maintenance loans, so could be walking out of university in nearly £30,000 worth of debt. Thatís quite a chunk given that the current average graduate salary is £23,000. There was a simpler time, though, when tuition fees didnít exist.

You might be surprised to learn it was actually the Labour Party who introduced tuition fees.

Re: When and who introduced tuition fees?

I am never surprised that Labour introduced either new fees or taxes,especially when Brown was around.

Re: When and who introduced tuition fees?

It's not that onerous and many will never repay the debt. I believe that loans are disregarded for mortgage applications.

From HMRC guide notes.https://www.gov.uk/repaying-your-stu...n/what-you-pay

You’re on Plan 2 if you’re an English or Welsh student who started your undergraduate course on or after 1 September 2012.

Your income per year Monthly repayments
£25,000 and under £0
£30,000 £37
£35,000 £75
£50,000 £187 

Interest on Plan 2
While you’re studying, interest is inflation plus 3%.

Once you’ve left your course, your interest rate depends on your income in the previous tax year.

If you’re self-employed, your income is the total income amount on your Self-Assessment form.

If you’re an employee, your income is your taxable pay:

plus any pension contributions
minus any benefits you get from your employer that are taxed through payroll (ask your employer if you’re not sure)
If you have more than one job in a year, your interest rate will be based on your combined income from all your jobs.

Income Interest rate
£25,000 or less Inflation
£25,000 to £45,000 Inflation plus up to 3%
Over £45,000 Inflation plus 3%

Re: When and who introduced tuition fees?

I was reading the other day that millions is owed in unpaid grants/loans. It seemed to be saying that foreign students coming into the UK can also get access to grants/loans from the UK, is that correct or have I got that wrong?

They can get access to loans, grants or scholarships depending what they want to study and there are hundreds of different organisations offering these readily and are dependent on ability and field in which they want to study. It's almost a free for all out there. A course I did years ago (teaching English to speakers of other languages ) apparently was funded by the EU. However, I still had to pay the going rate at the time. Lots of money moving around in the background of these things.

Seems I must've got the gist of it then.

There was a woman on a show the other day, she had finished Uni with a degree in Modern History..........now training to be a midwife. Not saying her time at Uni was wasted but what a turnaround.

Re: When and who introduced tuition fees?

You don't have to pay in Scotland if you live there, or if you are from the EU. But if you are English you pay the full fees. Why is it that if you come from the EUROPEAN Union & have never paid (or your parents) any taxes in the ,UK you are exempt ?? I don't get the logic

Possibly because the wee Krankie is buttering up the EU with a view to staying on without the rest of the UK. . . ??

PS: Hasn't some enterprising English student tried a racial discrimination case??

Re: When and who introduced tuition fees?

Double the amount of EU students come to the UK than what go there, reason being we have some of the best universities in the world.
