Tuition Fees Research - History Of Tuition Fees

 Tuition Fees Have done up by 1000% in last 10 years.

History of Tuition Fees

Tuition payments are charged by educational institutions in England to assist with funding of staff and faculty, course offerings, lab equipment, computer systems, libraries, facility upkeep and to provide a comfortable student learning experience.

Link Below gives us a more understanding History of Tuition Fees. Tuition fees go back to the Medieval periods when Universities were introduced by the Roman Catholic Church. Centuries later Protestants countries were encouraging people to go to University in order to improve the quality of Civil servants.

Tuition fees were first introduced across the United Kingdom in 1998 as a way of funding tuition in Higher Education. In 2004, the government announced development of increase in higher tuition to £3000 and had reached a maximum of  £3,290 in 2010/11. Proposals were brought forward by the Browne Commission to remove a cap on tuition fees. The government won a vote in the House of Commons to allow universities to charge up to £9000 in tuition fees. Sixty-fours universities applied for their intention to charge £9000 in tuition fees.

Tuition Fees - have been heavily debated by all. Here we have the Main two opposition parties. The tuition Fees were introduced by the Brown/Blair government, Yet Ed Milliband in this instance, is against the rise in in fees yet its his party that introduced them. 

Below we have Students having a go at Deputy Prime Minister  John Clegg, majority, angry at  him for going back on his word on Tuition Fees.

This is an advert from University of Coventry. Most universities will be aggressively enticing students to their faculties, as they consider Tuition Fees as the main way of deciding which university to pick. Similar courses, can easily offer A difference of £10000 in tuition fees, which in my own opinion sway students opinion. 

65% Would  Choose Cheaper Course Tuition Fees when picking a university 
35% Would choose according to quality of course provided and will not opt necessarily for lower fees.
Based on a Survey Conducted at Manchester College on 23 November 2011

Although the Survey showed that 70% of Students did not agree with the Tuition Fees, majority of them did not understand the reasons why fees had been raised.
