NUS President Aaron Porter has warned that students will be deterred from applying to university if tuition fee caps are removed.

A review by Lord Browne has recommended that universities in England should be able to charge unlimited fees.

The proposals set out a free market with charges of up to £12,000 a year for a degree course, however universities that charge more than £6,000 a year would lose a proportion of the fee to help cover the cost of student borrowing.
