High university tuition fees driving students abroad

High university tuition fees have been driving English students abroad where the cost studying for a degree can be a sixth of fees at home.

Among them is 19-year-old Hania Thurlow, from Norwich, who is studying liberal arts and sciences at Maastricht University.

Back home she would have paid £9,000 a year. In Maastricht, the basic cost is around £1,500 a year because the cost is deliberately kept low by the Dutch government.

More on this on the Sunday Politics programme in the east, 11GMT, BBC One, 2 December.
