Oh, I love this turn of events.

Oh-ho, we're only hypothesizing raising fees to £5000/7000/9000 per year; just speculative ideas is all. We'll listen to the public, of course. Oh, look, a charity poll.

Charity research finds high impact of university costs, as college staff fear 'lost generation of learners'

A big rise in tuition fees would lead to a dramatic reduction in the number of teenagers aspiring to go to university, with those from poorer backgrounds the most likely to give up hope of getting a degree, research reveals today.

- Excerpt taken from the Guardian article, by Rachel Williams.

If fees were to rise to £7000, there would only be 45% of prospective students? Ah, of course we'll take that into account!

Oh whoopsie! We're planning to raise the tuition fees to £9000 per year. Can't be helped! :D

All that above was sarcasm by the way, encase you couldn't tell...

OH HAY THAT'S HAPPENING AT MY UNIVERSITY AS WELL. (It's 1500 to 3000 euros though, ffs. And I can't bother to give a fuck since my fees are more than 10 times the amount, to give you a hint. Yeah, they're basically using me as free moneyz for degree. Sigh).

And holy shit, maybe it's because I automatically convert everything to US$$$ in my head, but your fees are getting expensive. As in, they're approaching US state fees. Which I consider expensive enough. D: D: D:

I usually say "STOP WHINING I HAVE TO PAY XXXXXXXX EUROS SOB" but... that's really high. Not something a lot of families can cough up immediately.

:/ :/ :/

Out of curiosity, did you have any protests? We just had a huge one on Wednesday.

I just realised I sound like I had about two hours of sleep. This would be because I had two hours of sleep, so I apologise for the lack of, er, coherence. Yeah.
