DEBATE - Should University be Free?

  • Baring Room Hertford College Oxford United Kingdom (map)

We are delighted to welcome you to our first Forum Debate of the Term, on the motion - Should University be Free?


The issue of university fees is a contentious one: it's swung the student vote, made (and broken) political parties, and recently been the subject of even more controversy, with Cameron's proposed grants cuts. Is university a right or a privilege? Are too many people in tertiary education, or too few? Does Europe have the right idea - or does America?

The Oxford Forum has brought together a range of students with experience in debating and politics for what promises to be an excellent debate. Make sure to come along, and keep an eye out as we will be announcing our main debaters soon!

Please arrive at the Holywell Gate (Hertford College, by the north end of the bridge) 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start.
