When I was lecturing 62 students in Sheffield Hallam University in 1993 , the LA paid £1,000 per student to the University
that was the total payment for tuition.
In 2011 I was teaching 320 students, they paid £3,000 a year, personally in fees, and soon to pay £9250 a year
Clearly the level of tuition – 62 to 320 students per lecturer for all tuition and marking, had decreased – why did they pay more ?
All universities including the Open at £6,000 a year, are now on the profit bandwagon
University is free in Scotland, but only if you’re a student from Scotland or the Republic or Ireland (or from the EU, and started in the 2020/21 academic year or earlier). If that’s you, you won’t pay a penny towards tuition fees at Scottish universities – the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) will cover the £1,820 a year for you.
So Scotland’s gov think a degree worth£1820 a year, so why £9,250 elsewhere in UK and far more for foreign students ?
And I assume won’t pay after 2021 intake so how much will be charged for even Scotland and NI ?.
i assume, all bar Scottish, must pay £9250 a year as all feed into greed. see below
In Ireland, undergraduate (Bachelor’s) degrees are free for citizens from Ireland, EU/EEA countries, and Switzerland. The costs are covered by the Higher Education Authority (HEA). Keep in mind that not all undergraduate courses offered by public universities are free.
The fees for new students who are domiciled in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and entering the University in 2021/22 will be £9,250 per annum for all programmes apart from LLB: Graduate entry accelerated (£9,450 per annum).
Most European Universities are still free or on average £800 a year ,
even in USA the student has a choice UK all degrees and Universities charge £9230 FOR all subjects excluding a few like Buckingham
All Universities are Charities,, paying no tax on income/buildings. So £9250 a year worth nearly £12,000
NOW MOST REMOTE TEACHING BUT NO REDUCTION IN FEES
Not accountable for services, subject to their own PR and students, who invest in their profile
The only future for our children is extortion and life debt with no accountable education
They are given no future no jobs, no alternative, but the University conveyor belt
Captive consumers, without rights or choice
All is now public money, thrown at institutions any, without accountability
Despite years of austerity, it adds to our three trillion defecit
Indebting our future generations – forcing into low pay jobs and an average debt of 60,000
Yet universities ARE going bankrupt because of their misuse and greed.
Once a University degree was a choice, guaranteeing a future, now it is a money maker, guaranteeing debt and servitude for life.
