Tuition fees introduced.
When I left sixth form if I wanted to go to University in 2000 the fees would of been just over £1,000 a year, when I finally decided to go to University in 2008 the fees were just over £3,000. Next year they will rise to £9,000. If they were £9,000 in 2000 would I have been brave enough to go to University or get a job and hopefully have a debt free life? I'm thinking the latter.
