Don’t Lower university fees down to £3,000

I was searching on petition.parliament.uk and saw an idiotic petition calling for the government to lower university tuition fees to £3,000 per year even tho student loans are not payable unless you earn at least £21,000 before tax meaning that unless you get a good job, you will not have to pay anything.

Student loans are done as a “tax” out of your paycheck at 9% on wages above £21,000 (If you earn £22,000 a year after 30 years when the loan is written off, you would have paid £2520 12x30x£7)

Based on England and Wales (Citation)

The biggest issue I have with this is that it funds nonsense university courses called gender studies and women’s studies that give you no skills to get a job that will advantage society and waste public money that could be used for better things.

Maybe I would be more supportive of this if university’s stopped teaching bullshit and only taught factual subjects that bring value for money.
