I am calling on the Prime Minister to stop all University fees immediately.

Every person with a permanent stay or has been born in the UK should not have to pay £9250 PER YEAR university fees for their degree.

There are so many people in debt because of this and I personally think it should come out of the Governments funding.

It would allow more children/adults to pursue a career knowing they will not be in debt and would allow them a better future. Many students and recent graduates have killed themselves, and hundreds of thousands have contemplated suicide because of the crushing burden of their student loans, according to research and surveys.

Then there are the hundreds of thousands that are either stuck claiming benefits or in a job they do not enjoy therefore creating depression along with other mental health issues which has begun to put an increased pressure upon the NHS. By abolishing student university fees, this could in fact alleviate some of the pressure which is costing the government extra money for their therapies and medications.

Personally, I believe this is unfair due to the increasing amount of careers which need degrees in order to start and thus forcing people into universities alongside all the daunting costs which go with it. University fees on top of accommodation and living costs play a huge factor as it accumulates the majority of student debt which often takes a lifetime to repay. 

This is to create equal opportunities for all people from various upbringings and allow them to better themselves academically to enable this country to prosper. Essentially, this is about assuring the survival of the country as it is the younger generation that will one day run it.
