[News] - London student protests and Open University fees

Students were protesting ( "rioting" according to mainstream media ) this week in London against a proposed trebling of student fees from 3000 to 9000 pounds.

I wonder if the Open University fees will be increased equally. As a foreign student I pay 800 pounds per 30 points ( seriously more than UK citizens, which I think is fair but that doesn't mean I am happy with it ) or roughly 2400 pounds per year. I am not sure if I want to pay 7200 pounds a year because my mathematics study is a hobby, period. I am sure the same is true for many other students abroad. At the end of the day the increase won't add up to the loss in students. From my point of view I hope the Open University only slightly increases overall fees and drops the subsidies to locals.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
