Paying for Education - the benefits of fees
Parents are tackling universities over poor grades and lack of teaching time as they seek better value for money from their children’s degrees.
As students increasingly turn to their families to help with tuition fees, Baroness Deech, head of the student complaints watchdog, has given warning that parental disgruntlement will escalate. ..
So as parents prepare to pay off their children’s fees to spare them years of debt, they are beginning to question what they are getting for their money....
...students are already seeking better value for money.
Last month, students at the University of Bristol complained after learning that they were to have two hours’ lecture time a week in their final year, instead of a promised six.
And this is being reported as though it bad news? Universities are no different to butchers, bakers and candlestick makers - the consumer should be demanding a bloody good deal, and the fact the lecturers and administrators don't like it is tough.
