Mildly startled

I've been in the UK HE sector for seventeen years, yet until a moment ago, I had no idea that potential undergrads are now charged a fee merely to apply for a place at university.  When did that happen?

I don't really have a fixed opinion on whether that's something individuals should pay (I support the principle of student fees, so shouldn't object to this one either), or whether the state education system ought to cover it (for UK applicants, anyway), as it did in the Nineties. It was just a surprise.

That's an application fee, of course, not an admission fee – there's no guarantee that applications will succeed.


Could have told you that - paid it myself back in 2001.
