Description

Is it fair to charge £9,250 for university tuition fees?


How much will you really pay for university? Does that depend on where and what you study? Are there any alternative ways to fund higher education? And how would these affect what the education system should be trying to achieve?


This IFS Public Talk, jointly organised with the University of Manchester, will be given by Jack Britton, Senior Research Economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) and will give an economist's perspective on the ongoing tuition fee debate. Nicholas Barr, Professor of Public Economics, from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) will also be our Chair and on hand to put your questions to Jack.

Travel

Travelling by train – we’re located close to both Piccadilly and Oxford Road train stations. The Magic 147 bus runs from Piccadilly right to the centre of campus. Please ask your bus driver to let you off at University Place (Stop E). If you’re travelling to Oxford Road station, go down the station approach to Oxford Road and turn right; University Place Building is 15-20 minute walk, or a short bus ride on any Magic Bus marked East Didsbury or West Didsbury (runs very frequently).

Travelling by car – if you’re using SatNav our postcode is M13 9PL. The nearest car park to University Place Building is the Aquatics Centre Car Park on Booth Street. This is the car park marked with the letter B on the campus map (Booth St East). From here you want to walk out of the road leading into the car park and take a left to go down Booth Street East. Continue walking until you get to the crossroad and take a left to go down Oxford Road. This is the main road running through the University campus. The University Place Building is the round building in front of The Manchester Museum.
