'Miliband in tuition fee U-Turn', reports News Editor, Lauren Brennan.
The Labour Party has announced their intention to charge tuition fees of £6000 per year, it has been announced. Leader Ed Miliband revealed the new policy at the Party Conference in Liverpool last week, but his critics have claimed that he has performed a U-Turn on his position from last year, when he opposed any increase from the current £3290 rate.
Many students, parents, teachers were shocked to hear earlier this year that from September 2012, universities in England are to increase tuition fees up to a maximum £9,000 per year, amid substantial budget cuts to institutions' teaching budgets.
The controversial policy, backed by parliament and led by David Cameron in December 2010, sparked an array of angry students taking to the streets in protest. It was developed as the government's response to a review of higher education funding led by former BP chief Lord Browne.
Universities in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will also be able to raise their fees from 2012, but their home students will not be affected.
