The article discusses the financial implications of increasing tuition fees on students taking up a veterinary degree in Great Britain. According to the authors, the increasing cap in tuition fees would discourage students from taking up veterinary degree. They believe that it will also decrease the number of applicants from the poorer class unless scholarships have been granted. Tuition fees are one of the contributing factors for a high level of debt incurred by veterinary students since an increase in 2006-2007.
