    Hi, I was looking forward to going to uni next year however due to the raise in fees, I no longer am.
    My questions is - do higher fees apply to current year 13s (will be going to uni in 2011) during the first year and if they do not, do they apply in later years?

    No. They will not apply to you at all if you are starting in 2011.

    i think i am right in saying that you pay the same tuition fees all the years you are at uni, so you will pay the £3290 or whatever it is all three/four years of your course. the changes in tuition fees will not affect you
    go enjoy uni!

    No, and actually you will 'benefit' from the inflation being applied to the £15,000 threshold for repayment.

    I could be wrong, but I'm sure I heard something like that in the debates prior to the voting.

    Anyone confirm?

    Yeah you pay the standard £3290 this year plus inflation, no huge rise in tuition fees

    I'm 95% sure we only get one year at the normal cost. The next years will be at the increased fees.

    THIS MAKES ME HAPPY! Provide a source of information? My offer letter from Exeter states that fees will be likely to increase for me in subsequent years?

    They probably meant the application of inflation.

    Are you 2011 entry? If you are, you have nothing to worry about.

    It is just true, I don't know what source to quote specifically. Exeter are probably just talking about fee rises with inflation.

    Isn't it £3k for 2011 entry and it is £3k for 2012 deferred entry at the university's discretion?

    Yes I'm 2011 entry thank god, this is going to make me revise like mad knowing that so much money rests on me going to university this year. I would still like some proof though, I've been under my previous impression for a long time.

    When will the proposals take effect?

    Ministers intend to bring in the new system in time for it to take effect from September 2012. Students applying in 2011 who defer entry to 2012 will have to pay the increased fees, and there are concerns that there will be a rush for places in 2011 before the new regime kicks in. But students who have begun their courses before 2012 will not be affected in their later years of study. "

    From BBC. They have a great Q&A on tuition fees.
