The UK has among the highest tuition fees in the world. Supporters argue students should contribute given the benefit they receive, while those against fees argue they entrench inequality, and that education should be free on principle. After Jeremy Corbyn pledged to end tuition fees in the last election, the Union asks if this system is sustainable.
