Students choosier with fee rise
With A-level results approaching, a study says that higher fees are going to make students in England more "choosy" about their university decisions.
If I were applying to be an undergraduate in late 2012 (thank God I’m not!) I too would look very carefully at the institutions and courses. With so much likely debt it is very important to choose a course that carries some weight after graduation. Only then can you begin to pay back that massive loan!
At least this is an indication that students are thinking about the courses they are applying for and not just ducking out of work for a few years and (dare I say it) having fun.
At least I was fortunate enough to be able to study and have fun without accruing enormous debt. Those were the halcyon days of student grants and before tuition fees had to be paid by the student.
