Porter: Students will be deterred

Porter claims that average debt will raise to more than £40000 with the increase in tuition fees.

He says that just because the previous increase in fees did not deter students from attending university, it is not necessarilly true that students will not be deterred by fees of £9000.

“Students will be forced to choose subjects that deliver a graduate premium. That is not what universities are for,” he said.
