A moustachioed university chief has suggested a new way to fund higher education – by scrapping tuition fees.
If adopted, the egghead’s ‘Learn now, pay later’ brainwave could be a lifeline to school leavers keen to continue studying but worried about mounting debt.
Instead of charging students upfront for their education, UCL’s Professor Malcolm Grant suggests introducing a ‘graduate tax’. This will be a percentage of university leavers’ earnings, payable only once they’re making a decent wage.
In other words, graduates only have to pay out if their degree pays off.
Has Grant proved that men with moustaches CAN have contribute good to our society? Read the full story on the Guardian – and see more pics of the professor’s magnificent facial fuzz – here
