Tuition fee changes could cost more, says union leader

Higher education in England could cost the public more than the old system despite a tripling in tuition fees, a union leader says.

University and College Union general secretary Sally Hunt will tell her annual congress in Manchester that funding is a “disastrous mess”.

Institutions can now charge students up to £9,000 a year for their tuition.

The government said its funding changes had put universities on a sustainable footing and improved student life.
