UK students have a number of options available to them, ranging from looking abroad for countries with lower tuition fees, to forgoing university altogether and opting for an apprenticeship or school leaver programme. One option that has the potential to flourish in this new environment of high fees and student distrust is online and open access based higher education. “I think it’s a great means of liberation for people who don’t have any means of getting on from where they are.” On the surface, many might be quick to dismiss such systems, saying they will never be a match for a physical university. Furthermore, for the most part, online or open access higher education systems are meant as alternatives, to provide an option for those without access to traditional higher education, due to deprivation or other circumstances.
