Tuition fees: Debt versus quality of education


A BBC survey of universities in England and Wales suggests most would like to put their fees up to at least 5,000 a year.

Student Julia Prague challenged then-Prime Minister Tony Blair on tuition fees in a 2004 edition of Newsnight. She has since graduated as a doctor, and still thinks expecting students to take on such high levels of debt is wrong.
