United Kingdom

If the Government’s plans for higher education go ahead it will be a disaster for students and the future of university education;

• students will be leaving university saddled with debts of up to £80,000;

• higher education will become a two tier system with only the rich going to the best universities;

• access to university will be based on bank balances not your academic ability;

• poorer students will be put off going to university if they have to pay £9,000 a year.

We, the undersigned, urge MPs to vote against the rise in tuition fees and cuts to education funding.

The future of education and the future of the next generation of students is at stake.
