Tuition Fees

Asked whether the Prime Minister was concerned about plans by universities such as the University of Central Lancashire to charge the maximum amount of 9,000, the PMS replied that the expectation has always been that universities would only charge 9,000 as an exception, not the norm. There is a process in place with the Office of Fair Access. Those universities that want to charge a higher fee will need to provide an access plan that needs to be approved by the Director of Fair Access, setting out their reasons and how they are going to encourage access for people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Put that quite a few universities have now said they are going to charge the maximum, the PMS replied that not all universities have said what charges they want to make and if they want to charge higher than the base rate they have to provide an access plan.
