New Labor's bill on tuition fees will ensure that students will face the prospect of leaving university with a debt of approximately £15000. Universities will be given leave to increase their tuition fees to around £3000 a year. The reforms which have been announced have been met with mixed responses. University graduates will be liable to pay the tuition fees at a rate of approximately 9% once they begin to earn an income of about £14000 a year. It is likely that about 30% of students will meet the requirements for the complete £1000 grant which will available to lesser privileged families.

[...] This project will analyze why the new bill on tuition fees might affect the amount of education an individual may acquire and hence, determine the amount of human capital they invest in. Workers who pay tuition fees for their schooling are willing to give up potential income today for higher earnings in the future.

However, one would also expect to be rewarded by higher earnings later on as they collect the returns to the educational investment[3]. [...]

[...] Summarily, it can be stated in light of the results obtained from the analysis carried out in this project that; New Labor's bill on tuition fees will in the long-run lead to an increase income in inequalities within the UK economy Further Analysis Figure 4 below shows the Capital Transfers to the private sector which could be attributable to Higher education in the UK. The charts on the left panel show that in the periods of 1995 and 1995, that there was a decline in capital transfer contribution to the private sector from higher education. [...]
