The Debate around Tuition Fees ft. Jim Dickinson

Why are students paying over £9000 a year for a predominantly online degree? Why are fees so expensive? Whose responsibility is it to ensure quality is upheld or to provide refunds? For the opening event of our Academic Rep Conference, guest speaker Jim Dickinson will be presenting a talk on the debate around tuition fees and value for money in universities.

This is an excellent opportunity to hear a fantastic speaker and gain a real insight into one of the most contested debates in the Higher Education sector right now.

This event is open to all students - you do not have to be an academic rep to attend!
