Overseas Students in Canada and the UK may soon be benefited from a ‘targeted fees for tuition’. The think tanks in these nations have proposed that lower tuition fees must be charged for students with low income. High fees are obstructing students from enrolling in Universities, they added.
A spectrum of fee levels would be offered by the targeted tuition fees for students from diverse backgrounds. Free tuition would be offered to students with low income while the wealthy students will have to pay higher.
Universities will receive the required income to afford resources through the policy. It will also benefit students with low income by offering access to higher education. This is explained in a research paper of the 2 think tanks. It includes Higher Education Strategy Associates – HESA in Canada. The UK –based HEPI – Higher Education Policy Institution is the second participating think tank.
The report has been titled – “Is means testing the answer: Targeted Tuition Fees?” It proposes fees tested by means as a middle ground between free education and set fees. This is to strike balance between accessible higher education for all and steady income for Universities.
Higher Education Strategy Associates President Alex Usher said that the system of targeted tuition fees is a huge advantage. This is over the twin systems of high fees for all and no fee, said the co-author of the report. Thus several diverse jurisdictions are voluntarily agreeing upon it, he added, as quoted by the Study International.
The implementation of the scheme will benefit several students in Canada and the UK including overseas students.
