24,034 students from all over the UK are registered to unite in London today to march together against the government’s proposed plans for higher education. The government proposed a rise of tuition fees up to £9,000.
More then 1000 of these students have taken busses down from Scotland to protest against the consequences the rise of tuition in England will have on Scotland.
The government’s announcement last week to increase tuition fees in England up to £9,000 has caused debate and uprising in the UK. Especially the Liberal Democrat’s decision to back the rise, despite original election pledges to stand against any increase of tuition, has sparked controversy.
