Off topic a bit, but does anyone know what's happening with MA and postgrad fees? Are they going up as well? I don't think I've seen any discussion of this in the papers. If I'd had to pay £9000 I just wouldn't have considered doing an MA, even though, as I bang on about all the time, literary theory is my life.
rosaline: it is new news, because being allowed to buy places at your preferred institution by paying international student fees up-front wasn't part of the proposals last year. This would make universities even more about ability to pay rather than your academic talent.
