Minority will live at home.

AN UNDETERRED minority of students said they would enrol at their local university and continue to live at their parents' home to cut higher education debts.

A number of prospective students said they would be forced to stay at home if tuition fees increased to pounds 9,000 a year.

If fees increase students may be unable to afford to rent and run accommodation away from home.

One said: "I first wished to go to university away from home and experience the independence of student life.

"I feel I am now being forced to attend my local university and fees are overwhelming. It just does not seem worth it."

A spokesman for Huddersfield University said: "The Government's introduction of an increase in tuition fees may well see more students choosing to commute."
