Nearly three-fifths of young people say the fees increase has influenced their decision about whether to apply to a university in the UK, according to a survey of around 1,000 teenagers.
The poll, published by the Independent Commission on Fees alongside its report, reveals that just under three-quarters of 15 to 17-year-olds in England say they are likely or fairly likely to apply to university.
- More than a third (38%) said the overall cost of studying at a particular university would be a factor in their choice.
- One in four (26%) said they would take tuition fees into account.
