UK university funding “unsustainable”: Students more indebted as government writes off loans

first_img Show Comments ▼ UK university funding “unsustainable”: Students more indebted as government writes off loans Share whatsapp Jessica Morris Tuesday 18 November 2014 6:22 am Tags: Higher education whatsapp The oulook for the UK’s higher education sector is dogged by financial uncertainty, according to new research.A nine-month inquiry by think tank the Higher Education Commission found the coalition’s reforms have put the sector on long-term footing that’s “far from clear”.  The post-2012 reforms increased how much students pay for a university education to an average cost of £44,035, according to the Institute of Fiscal Studies. Before the reforms were introduced, most students left university with a total debt of £24,754.The government is funding higher education by writing off student debt rather than investing in teach grants, according to the report. While the government continues to invest in higher education they’re not getting any credit for it.Yet as graduates become increasingly indebted many will struggle to repay their loans in full. The Institute for Fiscal Studies estimates that the future figure will be around 73 per cent, compared to just 25 per cent under the old system.Inquiry co-chair Dr Ruth Thompson said:We have at present a funding system that represents the worst of both worlds, where all parties feel that they are getting a bad deal.  While our higher education system has the strength and resilience to withstand considerable turbulence and volatility, the Commission found that present levels of uncertainty and risk mean that the future financial sustainability of the current funding model is far from guaranteed. We have not identified a crock of gold or magic bullet solution. What we have done is identify a number of recommendations for action, and lay out six potential options for further consideration.

Rouble plummets again on oil and China woes

first_imgMonday 1 December 2014 4:48 am Share Rouble plummets again on oil and China woes Emma Haslett The rouble fell at its fastest rate since the Russian crisis in 1998 this morning, as it approaches the end of the year as the world’s worst-performing currency.The currency fell 3.1 per cent to 52.00 against the dollar, at 2.5 per cent to 64.55 against the euro during early trading. In the past week alone, the currency has lost 10 per cent against the dollar. Over recent months, the rouble has been hit by a string of woes, including Western trade sanctions and the longest slide in oil prices since the beginning of the financial crisis. Rapid capital outflows from Russia have served to destabilise things even further.This morning, weak manufacturing data from China, which showed the sector as hit a six-month low, pushed prices down further. The sector is one of Russia’s strongest export markets. Oil prices fell further on weak trade in the Asian markets this morning, with a barrel of Brent Crude hitting $68.62, while WTI Crude fell to $64.67.At the end of October the Russian central bank took steps to stave off further slides in the rouble, hiking interest rates by 1.5 percentage points, but shied away from a decisive intervention in the market.Gleb Zadoya, head analyst at the Profit investment house in Moscow, said today’s fall would prompt further speculation as to whether the bank will take steps to intervene in the market. The only thing that matters to Russian market participants right now is how quickly the central bank will intervene in what is happening.

We see it as a gross breach of corporate governance. We are withdrawing our support for the CEO and the management team effective immediately and we reserve our right to pursue legal action against other executives and board members.” Petroceltic was recently the subject of speculation concerning a possible offer from Dragon Oil. After Dragon Oil  announced it would not be making an offer, Petroceltic’s share price plunged, by as much as 39 per cent at one point. whatsappcenter_img whatsapp Caitlin Morrison Sunday 7 December 2014 11:20 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRelated ArticlesThe Best 80 Inch 4k TV For Under $2,000UndoTop 10 Date Night In Movies & Films Of All TimeUndo8 Surprisingly Simple Ways to Keep Your Liver HealthyUndo Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTele Health DaveRemember Pierce Brosnan’s Wife?

Leeds United and Leicester broadcast more than any other club whatsappcenter_img  For fans of clubs in the Football League, seeing your team play live on Sky Sports is a rare privilege. If you can’t make it to the ground, you’re likely to miss out on seeing anything more than brief highlights of the game. Unlike the multitude of live games, in-depth highlight shows and rolling news coverage afforded to the Premier League, the 72 clubs in the lower divisions are usually treated to one or two live games per week. With so much less exposure in comparison to the Premier League’s top teams, it’s easy to see how Football League fans can get frustrated with a lack of coverage. But which team’s supporters are most justified in their complaints? And who is afforded more airtime than anyone else? We crunched the numbers and found that since the beginning of the 2009/2010 season, Leeds United and Leicester City have had more live Football League games (excluding play-off matches) broadcast on Sky Sports 1 or 2 than anyone else, with 35 matches each. However, as they’ve spent five months away since winning promotion last season, it’s Leicester who have the highest average number of live games per season of any club who has spent three or more seasons in the Football League. How many times has your team been on Sky Sports? Use our calculator below to find out. [calculator id=”18″] After Leicester and Leeds, Sky Sports’ Football League producers’ favoured clubs include Nottingham Forest, Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday who have all had over 20 live games broadcast in the last five-and-a-half seasons. During their brief sojourn in the Championship in the 2009/2010 season, Newcastle had a whopping 15 live league matches on Sky Sports – no other Football League club has been afforded as many in a single season since. West Ham were broadcast live on 10 occasions during their 2011/2012 promotion season. Graph made with plot.ly Cameramen must surely be growing tired of the pies on offer at Leicester’s King Power Stadium, which has played host to more live Football League games than any other ground since August 2009. Leeds’ Elland Road is second with 15 live games, followed by Nottingham Forest’s the City Ground and Middlesbrough’s Riverside with 11 games each. Leeds fans who don’t fancy expensive train fares and long days out to see their team play away have been treated well. The Yorkshire club had 20 away games broadcast live, more than any other club.  Fans of clubs not yet mentioned may be crying foul at this stage. Everyone likes to think of his or her club as “by far the greatest team the world has ever seen” that would be sure to draw in a big audience. Yet Leeds’ dominance of the Sky Sports screens is understandable. Of clubs that have spent three or more seasons in the Football League in the period studied, fixtures featuring Leeds have the highest average audience of 477,000. Leicester’s 35 live games had an average audience of just 344,000 – only the 15th highest figure. Graph made with plot.ly It should be noted that context is important to accurately measure these figures. Did Leeds’ games fall at more critical times in the season? Did they feature other high-profile opposition? Did they take place at peak broadcast times?  For example, only the most staunch Stevenage supporter could argue that their club was bigger than Charlton, Fulham or Portsmouth even though they have had a larger average TV audience since the beginning of the 2009/2010 season than all three. Unlike the Premier League, the Football League distributes its £65m a year television deal with Sky evenly among every club.  For a full list of live games and audience figures on Sky Sports 1 and 2 since the beginning of the 2009/2010 season check out the table below.

Both were banned from taking senior roles in financial services firms.Their failings led to a culture which permitted Libor manipulation to take place, and for wrongdoing to go undetected, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said.“Proper systems and controls were non-existent and there was a culture at Martins where revenue came first and compliance was seen as unimportant rather than as an integral part of the running of the firm,” said the FCA’s Georgina Philippou. “Both individuals also ignored obvious risks such as the risk that brokers would give or accept inducements. This risk did in fact crystalise when brokers at Martins were induced to assist in Libor manipulation in exchange for corrupt brokerage payments.”Both agreed to settle early in the investigation, resulting in a 30 per cent discount to their fines.

On an annual basis, prices rose by 5.7 per cent – slowing from 6.8 per cent in the year to January, and the sixth consecutive slowdown in the pace of the rise. Prices had been soaring by as much as 11.8 per cent in the 12 months to June 2014, and analysts believe the market needed to take a break as prices were becoming unaffordable.“Over the past couple of years, prices have risen rapidly and are close to exceeding their 2007 peak,” said Stephen Smith from the Legal and General Mortgage Club. “While this may be viewed as a positive indicator of confidence in the market, it is important not to price people out.”Despite rising prices and falling rates of home ownership, young Britons remain keen to buy a house eventually.Over the last decade the proportion of 25- to 34-year olds owning their home has dived from 59 per cent to 36 per cent. However, 61 per cent of private renters still want to own one in future.“This remains a longer-term aspiration, with around half of renters expecting it to take five years or more to take their first steps into the housing market,” said Nationwide chief economist Robert Gardner.
