Unseen Threat To Btl?

Recommended Posts

Actually, the list was of institutions which it was feared could be at risk when tuition fees were first introduced a few years ago. Because the repayment terms mean that to all intents and purposes the fees are in reality a graduate tax, their introduction has not hit recruitment to the extent that was originally feared. However, within HE circles, there is general agreement that three which are still considered by HEFCE to be 'at risk' are Teesside, Luton and Thames Valley.

it could get even more tricky for BTL if things start to get REALLY tight for the parents.

rather than helping the kids out with a few bob for food when they go to digs,in all likelihood the kids will stay at home and study locally....this is what happened with a lot of folks the last time around.

when parents feel flush for cash,they don't mind helping,but when hard times appear...EVERYBODY in the household has to tighten their belts.

"The revelations come as the government this week increased the number of grants for students, a move widely interpreted as being an attempt to pave the way for lifting the £3,000 cap on top-up fees."

So let the tutition fees rise, fewer students can afford to study there, the university has even less income, and even fewer students in order to attract external funding.

Isn't this the equivalent of printing money to cope with inflation?
