Jeff Hurst started this petition to UK GOVERNMENT Minister for education

Two of my Grandchildren are taking Degrees at University, one in Primary Education and one in Business Studies. My hopes are more will follow. However they seem to be victims of the Universities efforts to milk as much money from the students as possible.For example my grandson must spend three years gaining his degree and pays the commensurate fees and accommodation costs  of around £12000 a year. For this in his first two years he had two days of face to face lectures, the rest free time. In this his third and most important year he has one day face to face and the rest he must complete on line plus his dissertation. This to get his degree, then he must spend another year on placement before he gets his Teaching Diploma. This when the government acknowledge a lack of teachers. Of course no doubt he is one of many, all of whom, whatever their hoped for qualification suffer the same cost penalties. Most of these Degree courses could be completed in two years if properly organised and managed by the Universities.  May I Petition the Minister to review the way in which these courses are managed and the iniquitous way the Universities are forcing the students into horrendous debt. It may be too late for my Grandson, but not others.
