    A fun fact: You don’t pay tuition fees up front. You seem to insinuate students do.

    Also, the new repayment system uses PAYE, so the money goes before you get your pay check. Which means it effectively works as a time based tax (the debt from tuition fees is wiped after 30 years)

    Why should graduate tax be treated differently from other taxes? Surely corporation tax should then only be limited to investing in SMEs? How would you fund other Govt. departments, like DfID, where they don’t take in taxes?

    Fundamentally, tuition fees are not a big problem on the financial side of Uni living. In fact, as you mentioned, living costs are far more of a problem.
