Is university worth the money?

For this short vox pop I wanted to find out what students thought about the rise in tuition fees. I drew up a series of questions asking them why they had made the decision to come to Leeds University and whether fees had put them off. I wanted students to tell me whether they thought the fees were worth it. But I quickly realised that most saw the degree as simply a necessary step into a job, so I decided to get them to reflect on the purpose of university. I wanted to know – had students no interest in the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake?
