Over a third of Universities to charge £9,000 tuition fees

It has emerged this week that over a third of Universities will be able to charge the full £9,000 for every course that is on offer to students.

It comes as even worse news that 58% of the universities have been allowed to charge £9,000 for at least one of their courses on offer. The universities had to put their plans past Offa if they wanted to raise their fees about the £6,000 minimum.

Negotiations have been going on for a while but it turns out that no university has been held back in applying for the maximum fees.

However, the government has said that along with Offa they will be looking to help students from poorer backgrounds to fund university. In exceptional circumstances some students will only be madeto pay £6,000 but figures today showed that on average university fees are more likely to be just over £8,000.

This figure is higher than the proposed level by governement when the bill was passed and has led to many ministers criticising the scheme.

It appears that universities are finding it easier than expected previously to raise their fees to the maximum £9,000 without many problems.

Below is a table of the proposed tuition fees for many universities in the UK.
