Well that is changing rather badly since in 2012 the government basically told universities they could charge what the hell they liked and so fees literally trebbled over night.
I think the average is now about £9000 a year,(roughly $23000), which isn't quite as bad as the states, but is getting that way.
i suspect eventually Britain will be like the states where only the extremely rich or those who get some sort of financial assistance will go to university, though then again, there is no sign of the numbers of random degrees dropping or of the government stepping in and stopping student lones from having their idiotic interest rates since they're still under the bizarre impression that all graduates will earn massive wages.
i'll confess I was lucky in that not only did I do my degree before! all this stupidity when it was actually affordable to do so, but also because doctorate started before then it isn't covered by the fee restrictions, though I confess it is very! irritating to me that I can't now go and do a degree in voice.
Of course the above stated social bennifits of going to university are still there, at least in Britain, I still remember my time at uni as the best in my life and the only point I was fully accepted, it's just a shame now people will need to be in debt for the rest of their lives and likely not given a qualification that employers will value afterwards, ---- of course since these days most employers aren't looking for people who can actually think anyway and just want corporate cogs they can slot into the prophet machine, it's not too surprising.
