There should be a cap on university tuition fees in the UK.
Education benefits society as a whole. Society should pay for tertiary education (as it does in Scotland and Wales)
Without a cap many students would be priced out of the market.
Student fees are already too expensive and saddle people with a lifetime of debt.
If fees are not capped poorer students will not be able to afford to go to the better universities.
Capping prevents students from being beholden to future employers to fund their education. Universities should be a place for free and critical thinking.
Capping devalues the status of a degree qualification, and leads to students undervaluing their time at university.
Students should have to pay for an education that is largely for their own benefit.
Most people who go to university waste their time and would do better for themselves and society if they went directly into the labour market.
Education should be treated as part of the real economy and choices should be market led, only the free-market can be trusted to result in efficiency and excellence.
