In the UK the fees for University is £9000 a year! That's outrageous, students at University can't afford to pay £9000 a year. If they're borrow money, students would be in debt for approximately 20-30 years maybe more. For young students, life would be ruined now if they could not go to University because parents might not be able to afford it.

Yep, that's what a ConDem coalition will do, and its only the start. Here in Scotland, the SNP are promising to keep university free of tuition fees by charging the rest of the UK more, and probably EU and other students as well. But you're right. Outrageous!

It isn't outrageous. Poorer students will get more grants and will pay less than they did under the old system. The wealthier students can afford it. Everyone gets loans to cover the fees with interest rates equal to inflation. If you don't ever earn over 21,000 pounds ($34,000) you never have to pay it off.

Move to America, tuition for in-state students at a public university is only $10,000. Super cheap, and it's only rising by roughly 6% a year.
