Research Almost three-quarters of universities in England are planning to charge the maximum £9,000 tuition fee for
some or all of their courses, according to Office for Fair Access (Offa) figures .
The average fee level for 2014-15 will rise by about £150 to about £8,650.
These agreements show that 72% of universities are planning to charge the maximum £9,000 fee
for some or all courses, compared with 62% the previous year.
"Money worries lead many students to consider dropping out of university and even the small
payments from the National Scholarship Programme could be the difference between gaining a life
changing qualification and leaving with nothing," said NUS vice president, Rachel Wenstone
University fees have increased from £3,290 to a maximum of £9,000 a year from 2012-2013.
This is having a major impact on people’s decisions on whether they want to go to university
or not. I am here with Luke Smedley who says.
How much was your course?
Did increasing the fees affect what university you decided to go to?
Do you think the fees should be as expensive as they are, if so why?
Do you regret your decision in going?
Do you think you made the right decision by getting yourself into debt by
going to university?
Do you think you’ll be able to pay the money back?
Would you advise others to go to university?
