    I think UCL said nothing yet about their 2012 fees. But I am sure they too will charge the maximum because they were one of those unis who terrorised the government for years to lift the cap.

    Essex is going through the consultation phase still. I'd expect a figure at the beginning of next term.

    This is unofficial from York's open day, but apparently they want to keep fees at their current levels for a few years and see how things go.

    Surrey has joined the 9k group, I think we can expect all 1994 group institutions to do so.

    I have seen a lot of comments on threads were people have been asking which universities will be wanting to charge the maximum fee for 2012 entry. So for the sake of dispelling the rumours and counter rumours about which universities will seek to charge the maximum fees I thought it maybe of help to create this thread, primarily for the people who the fees hike will effect.

    The universities thus far:
    Oxford
    Cambridge
    Imperial College
    Durham
    Exeter
    Surrey

    Liverpool University and Leeds University have expressed an interest in charging £9,000 fees but it has yet to be agreed by the governing bodies.

    No university has yet specified a sum below the £9,000 limit but Liverpool Hope University has said they will not seek the £9,000 maximum.

    I will update this thread as I hear of more news.
    Liverpool and Leeds think they could charge 9k, jesus! Im just glad this will force people to think before they go to uni!

    QUB is not worth £9000.

    Dear god I absolutely loathe the place, the students around it and the businesses that treat you like **** even though the students bring them the majority of their income. There's like 3 decent clubs and bouncers can be hit and miss......

    QUB, the only thing you graduate with is a First in pretentiousness which is soon thrown back in your face considering most graduates work in the surrounding shops as cashiers unless they were top of their class. Belfast went down the ****ter a long time ago.

    Why would they do that? You couldn't pay me £6k to go to Leeds Met.

    Edit: On topic: other than the universities already mentioned, Liverpool Hope has been the only university so far to announce that they won't be charging the maximum fees rate.
    Surprise, surprise. :rolleyes:

    OP: I'd wait until the prospectuses have been released for absolutely final confirmation of fees.

    But you can expect the top universities and the most popular courses to be charging the £9000 cap.
