Abstract

The recent relaxation of the cap in university fees for undergraduates has seen most universities set their fees at the maximum of £9,000.The soon to be released Higher Education White Paper is set to abolish university quotas for students with high A level grades, with the hope that this may drive down fees. Tim Leunig finds that the policy is unworkable, and argues that lower fees are highly unlikely, given that demand for places at elite universities is very high.
