Tuition fees 'unsustainable' for Wales, say universities

The way Welsh students are funded is unsustainable, the body representing universities in Wales has said.

The Welsh government pays the majority of Welsh students' tuition fees, wherever they choose to go in the UK.

On Monday, Universities Wales will publish its manifesto ahead of next year's Assembly elections calling for the current tuition fee grant to be replaced by a means tested grant.

The Welsh government said its policy was an "investment in young people".

Prof Colin Riordan, who chairs Universities Wales, says there should be changes to student funding.
