Is Cut in Universities Fees Going to Impact the Higher Education in UK?

Cut in Universities Fees
News and media has shown that government has decided to cut the universities tuition fees. This is a good step taken by the government for students, but not so good for the universities administrations. There are some diverse points that say that this cut will be the loss of university, yet it would be in the favor of students to the level of their higher education. There is a great contrast and contradiction between the statements (cuts in universities fees is the downfall of universities or the blessing for students) that would be discussed in this paper accordingly.

According to dissertation writing services UK, the higher education is most important part of student’s life nowadays because you can’t get job without a higher degree and the other sad part is that if you get education from a low ranked university even your degree can’t be recognized from certain companies and educational sectors. It is a quite challenging part for a middle class person to educate his children or himself from well known, highly recognized and exceedingly ranked universities, because the fees of these universities are too high and one cannot afford it.

Certainly, most of the universities in UK offer some programs for foreigner students as well, but fee is too high. Two-year degree’s fee is more for students and there is no extra variety of subjects for them. The fee is quite high as compare to the regular amount. Consequently, it is very difficult for foreigner students to take admission in good universities of UK, because of very high ranges. They cannot afford high fees of universities and stay in the limited circle of their education that is not enough for today’s technical world.

Hence, most of the talented students cannot get higher education because of the high tuition fees of good universities. It is not just the loss of a family, but also the loss of government in terms of not having hard working and talented people. So in this case it would not be harmful to say, that decrease in the fees of universities would be the best opportunity for middle class, lower class and talented people to get admission in the first-class universities and to educate themselves in a very good environment for better future and better life.

In some of the universities in UK, there is a loan and fund section that helps the poor, lower middle class and middle class students, as their parents can’t support them. The universities offer them bigger loans and they get their education under the pressure of debt. They graduate with the burden of great debt that is very fearful and unfair for them and for their families as well.

On the other hand if you talk about the full fee cut in the universities; it means no more good universities. If the whole fee will be cut down, the university administration will automatically be getting poor day by day. Some of the universities in UK will likely close and other universities may reduce the range of their regular courses they usually offer for their students. Most importantly the higher cost disciplines like Medical, Engineering, and technology would direly be threatened. Splashing the fees would not only affect the subjects, but also the practices and researches. Although, the cut in fees is also a big loss, unfair and damaging part to the universities, but that could be coped-up through the funds given by the government of UK.

Since the slash in fee of universities of UK is very constructive, supportive and valuable for the students of higher education not only in UK, but also for the foreigners students. But if the universities are still charging high and maximum amount of fee per subject from students of higher level of then, there are some points that should be highlighted; there should be enough verity of subjects for students to explore the gate ways of knowledge, and there should be great flexibility about the how the courses should be delivered, so on and so forth.

In a nutshell, you may say that yes, the cut in universities fees going to impact the higher education in the UK. It is better for the students, yet not so good for the universities administration. But there are still chances that these universities might take fewer students per year and there will be fewer graduates. And if the students will take admission by the help of loans, they will not be helped because of the debt they had to pay the same amount of fees at the end of their degrees.
