Have rising tuition fees put you off going to university?
New figures have shown that the number of UK students applying to start degree courses this autumn has fallen by almost 9 per cent, as tuition fees triple to up to £9,000.
Just over 50,000 fewer applicants have applied for university compared with the same point last year – a drop of 8.9%, according to new Ucas statistics.
Students starting university this autumn will be the first to pay up to £9,000 a year in tuition fees, with many English universities planning to charge the maximum.
Universities minister David Willetts insisted that 2012 will still be a “competitive year” for students hoping to gain places.
