Student unrest over fees: while the ministers insist that their planned cuts in the higher education funding offer a "fair deal for students", the university students and teachers don’t think that this is the case, as the recent street scenes indicate.
Higher education funding is being cut by 40% - with teaching grants being all but wiped out except for science and maths, and for other courses the government expects the costs of teaching be funded by tuition fees. It proposes that tuition fees should rise from 2012.

The plan is for a lower cap at £6,000, with universities able to charge up to £9,000 - triple the current cap - in "exceptional circumstances".

The propose increase in the student fee has differential impact on some groups of students when considering the outcome related value for money. The ‘Alarming Minority Report’ on Parliamentary Brief online found that BAME graduates across the country are failing to even find employment as easily as their white counterparts - let alone progress up the ladder - despite being highly represented at UK universities. Just 56.3 per cent of BAME students who graduated in 2007-08 found work within a year compared with 66 per cent of white students.
