A plan to stop “rip-off” university degrees is being considered.

The Prime Minister and Education Secretary have declared that students and taxpayers would be better safeguarded against rip-off degree programs that have high drop-out rates, don’t result in excellent jobs, and leave young people with low incomes and big debts.

Limits will be put in place for programs with high dropout rates or low percentages of graduates landing professional jobs.

The UK is home to some of the top colleges in the world, yet a small percentage of the programs offered leave students with debt, meager salaries, and scant employment prospects.

The government wants to improve the system so that it is more equitable for both them and the taxpayers, who invest heavily in higher education and are responsible for billions of pounds in unpaid tuition fees if graduation wages are low.

The government wants to ensure that colleges and universities provide the same high-quality instruction that is expected in our schools and that young people are encouraged to choose the career path that is best for them, whether it be a higher technical degree, an apprenticeship, or a university degree.

The maximum tuition that can be paid for classroom-based foundation year courses will also be decreased as a result of the changes, from £9,250 to £5,760.

In order to help students make the best choices possible on where and what to study, the Office for Students will keep working to make it simpler for them to evaluate the value of each university course, including its prospects for employment. We are requesting that the Office for Students take steps to guarantee that courses that don’t produce satisfactory results are subject to more stringent controls.

”The UK has some of the top colleges in the world, and earning a degree can be quite gratifying,” according to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

“However, too many young people are being sold a false dream and wind up paying for a subpar education that doesn’t promise them the chance of a respectable career at the end of it.”

”That is why we are enforcing laws against fraudulent university programs and expanding the availability of apprenticeships and skills training.”

”This will assist more young people in making the proper decisions that will enable them to realize their potential and advance our economy.”

These new actions, in accordance with Ms. Keegan, will target higher education institutions that continue to provide inadequate courses and convey a loud and obvious message that we will not allow students to be sold a false promise.

”Wherever they decide to study, it is crucial that students have the skills necessary to succeed and land fantastic jobs, supporting the prime minister’s objective to expand our economy.”

”Opposition lawmakers countered that the restrictions amounted to a “cap on aspiration” and would limit the options available to young people.”

Bridget Phillipson, the shadow education secretary, stated: “This is simply an attack on the hopes of youth and their families by a government that wants to strengthen the class ceiling, not demolish it.”

”The Office for Students’ new mission will be to erect new hurdles to opportunity in places with fewer graduate jobs since the Conservatives’ dismal record on apprenticeships makes it impossible to trust them to bring about the reform that our young people need.”

Through changes to the skills system and support for higher education, “Labour will enable our young people to seize the opportunities of the future; your background will be no barrier to getting on under a Labour government.”

According to Munira Wilson, the education spokesman for the Liberal Democrats, “Rishi Sunak is so short of ideas that he’s dug out a fresh version of a policy the Conservatives have announced and then unannounced twice over.”

”Universities do not desire this. It restricts aspirations and makes it more challenging for young people from underprivileged families to pursue higher education.”
