Raising the Cap (0506P3)

Status: Lapsed | Zone: Creative Industries

Passed: 10/03/2008 | Lapsed: 10/03/2008

This policy was discussed at the following meetings:

  • The Higher Education Act (2004), which allows Universities to charge Tuition fees of up to £3000 per year
  • That the Government has undertaken to review this level of fees in 2009
  • That existing Union policy mandates SUSU to campaign for the £3000 cap on fees to be lifted in 2009
  • SUSU policy on any issue should be dictated by what is in the interests of its members
  • A decision taken four years in advance, by students unaffected by Top up fees, cannot properly be said to represent the interests of SUSU members in 2009.
  • That the current process of debate and consultation on this issue be maintained and increased as the Review period approaches
  • That a decision on whether or not to support raising the cap be made at the most expedient moment for the Union and its members
    Sorry, there are no Mandates for this policy
