Comment on rising tuition fees creating unbalanced education system

Tuition fees set to rise again
 
Increasing fees means increasing graduate debt, a situation that will inevitably discourage more disadvantaged students from applying for University places. It also helps to create a class divide in the system. Having a competitive pricing environment for degree courses makes for an extremely unbalanced system. Surely students should be encouraged to apply for the best institution academically, not thrown into a monetary decision? If tuition fees must be paid should they not be fixed to avoid this?
