Seeing a lot of discussion about people deferring, and very little about this! It is very possible that the government will remove the £9k cap and raise tuition fees for the academic year after next - all indications seem to be that this is quite likely to happen. So just a heads up that this is a risk that's worth considering for those thinking about their options
Yes - it's a really unclear picture at the moment, which really isn't helpful. There are definite moves to get increases with inflation, with some Russell Group unis arguing for more. One issue will be whether any increase is covered by the loans. Another is what inflation might be in 2017 - it's currently really low!
(Sorry, not meaning to panic anyone about this! I don't think uni will suddenly become massively more unaffordable than it currently is. Just wanted to make it clear that there is a bit of uncertainty as it could be a factor).
