Who should pay for education?
A scheme aimed at getting more children from poor homes into England's universities has been scrapped. Should students pay for their education?
Universities UK (UUK) head Professor Steve Smith says without higher fees the number of student places would have to be cut, as teaching grants are axed. Prof Smith is calling for the government to say which subjects it plans to subsidise.
His comments come a day after students and pupils protested against fees and university budget cuts in central London and in university towns and cities around England and Scotland.
Should education be free? Should certain subjects should be subsidised? Are you a student or lecturer? Were you involved in the student protests?
This debate is now closed. Thank you for your comments.
