Tuition fees; are they debated enough?
Tuition fees are a big issue in any general election but what are the three main parties’ policies. Well, Labour are saying that they want to get a 50 per cent target into higher education but are have not yet said how they are going to
do this and what it may cost. The Conservatives have said that they will have extra funded places for those who wish to attend university and the Liberal Democrats plan to lower fees and scrap them all together for final year students and first degree students.
But what would these proposals mean for students? Siren Reporter Becky Stanworth spoke to Kayleigh Turner of the University of Lincoln’s Student Union and she told us their views.
