Keep the Cap on University Fees
A petition against taking the cap off tuition fees, as proposed by Lord Browne. Removing the cap would: Discourage applicants from less fortunate backgrounds Leave students in crippling mortgage-like debt Make England's best universities totally inaccessable to students from low or middle income families Make it difficult for middle or low income families to support more than one child going to university There are countless reasons why the proposed changes would ruin the English University education system. The "Widening Participation" schemes and "Access" schemes many Universities have launched in the past few years, encouraging applications from all socio-economic backgrounds to go to University, would be entirely in vain. University would once again become an option for "upper classes", not for students with potential but for students with money. Join this petition to keep University education accessible for all.
