Cambridge has become the first university to announce that it will charge maximum tuition fees of £9,000 a year.
But it will give hefty discounts to poorer students, which means the middle classes will bear the brunt of the move.
MPs voted in December to raise tuition fees to £6,000 per year from 2012, with universities allowed to charge £9,000 in exceptional circumstances.

The "scholarships" give to minorities are paid for by non-minority students by student loans that they will be paying for the rest of their lives.

And here I think it’s been show that alot of the “minority” scholarships are given to kids of reasonably well-to-do families, not to the truly needy hard working students trying to better their lives.

Marx hated the middle class. He came up with a way to get rid of them.
This is illustrated in 2011. If you’re “poor” the government will just give it to you. If you’re “rich” you can buy your way in. If you’re middle class you’re given bills of the poor and rich.

(Never forget that the American Revolution began when the British tried to disarm the colonists.)
"Oxford University yesterday signalled similar plans. It said it would need to charge nearly £8,000 to cover tuition for all its students but the full £9,000 if it wants to fund bursaries for poorer students. "
It's a tough time to be middle class.
Compared to costs here, it’s still a bargain to attend, even if they raise the rates.
I suppose German public Universities avoid this by being practically free to everyone. That said, there are so few places even for the top scholars, many have to wait a few semesters to receive a spot. However, the time spent waiting can be used to learn a practical trade applicable to your career interests.
