CITY VIEWS: SHOULD WE REPLACE TUITION FEES WITH A GRADUATE TAX?

SOPHIE BOYD | HISCOX

“If the aim is to make the system fairer, I think that removing upfront fees might well encourage students from lower income families to go to university. But ultimately they will still bear the costs, albeit at a later date.”

MICHAEL GROVES | LLOYDS TSB

“A graduate tax might improve social mobility in making university more accessible. However, a badly designed graduate tax could end up meaning people pay a lot more than what universities currently ask for in tuition fees.”

JAMES BARTHOLEMEW | MODELZONE

“It seems a bit useless to change the system to me – I don’t think it
will make a great deal of improvement so why bother going to all the effort? I don't see how this is going to plug the higher education funding gap.”
