Higher Education Special

Free Speech, Series 1 Episode 5 of 12

With A-level results about to be announced, Free Speech asks whether higher education is worthwhile. Live from Edinburgh, against the backdrop of the Fringe, Jake Humphrey presents an exclusive poll asking whether the new £9,000-a-year tuition fees in England and Wales will affect the number of people pursuing university degrees. An audience of 18-25 year olds have their say. Gay marriage, devolution - including a search for the best Scottish independence joke at the Edinburgh Fringe - and the big news of the day is on the agenda for the panel, which includes comedian Shappi Korsandi and the SNP's Humza Yousaf, a 27-year-old MSP.
