Universities planning to charge the maximum fee of £9,000 a year could inadvertently give employees the upper hand over employers when it comes to finding work.
That is the opinion of Charlie Ball, deputy director of research at the Higher Education Careers Services Unit, who said that the future looks potentially very rosy for university leavers down the line.
In order to attract the best graduates, employers will start looking for other ways to attract them to their organisations and with competition for stand-out university leavers already fierce, the situation is likely to intensify.
"Employers do tend to look at the long term and, particularly if we start to see less people going to university, once the economy recovers, we're going to start seeing a situation where employees will have the upper hand over employers," Mr Ball added.
According to research by the BBC, half of the 54 universities it surveyed said they would charge £9,000 for all courses.
