The Government's decision to treble university fees are "putting thousands of people off" applying to university, Shadow Universities minister Shabana Mahmood said today.
Commenting on the Independent Commission on Fees report, which found that university applications are 15,000 lower this year, Ms Mahmood said:
"The Tory-led Government’s decision to treble tuition fees at the same time as cutting funding for higher education is already putting thousands of people off university who otherwise would be eagerly preparing to start their courses".
