Higher Education Policy Institute Tuition Fees Report

EDM number 1327 in 2007-08, proposed by Greg Mulholland on 03/04/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Higher education and Students.

That this House is concerned by the findings of a report by the Higher Education Policy Institute which shows that tuition fees could more than double to £7,000 a year, and that students could be made to pay these fees before they start their courses; is further concerned that this could lead to graduates accumulating mortgage-style debts, which would take longer to pay off and put off even more people from less affluent backgrounds from applying to higher education; and believes that lifting the cap on tuition fees could have a serious and detrimental impact on the numbers of young people applying to university, particularly from less affluent backgrounds, and on the future life of graduates who face being burdened with mountainous debts for years to come.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
