Say Im gonna start uni this year (2011/2012) which the increase tution fee doesn't apply yet, what if I transfer to a different university in the 2nd year, will i still pay the same fees as the students which started the same year, or I have to pay the expensive fees because I change universities?:confused:

You could ask the uni if they'll let you pay lower fees but they'll probably make you pay the higher ones

I'd like to know (for sure) the answer to the OP's question too. I'm actually transferring (I did this via UCAS like I did originally last year) and I think I'm paying £9000... But if I'm entitled to pay less I'd obviously love to know. I'll phone Uni about it soon but it would also help if someone knew on these forums. I've applied for my Student Finance with the new course details just now. Student Finance do provide the loan for the entire tuition fee (even after next term's increases) don't they?

You need to ask the uni because this is something they need to tell you. They can agree the lower fee, but equally they can insist on the higher one. It depends on the uni.

Thanks, I spoke to the Uni last week and they said I'll be classed as a continuing student SO I DON'T HAVE TO PAY THE NEW TUITION FEES!

You always pay the same fee regardless of the circumstance. Whatever fee you paid in your first year is the same fee you pay at the new university.

In my situation, I started first year paying £1,300~. This was a long time ago.
I then was sick for 5 years!! I left that uni and started uni last year.

I'm still paying £1,300~ per year! It's great.

Student finance told me that you always pay the fee type that you began with.

This includes if you leave the uni, transfer, or take a leave of absence.
However, student finance has messed up in the past. So ALWAYS get in touch with them and remind them that you should pay the original fees!

Thanks for negging me and then posting complete rubbish :rolleyes: This is completely not true - it may be in your situation, but you were ill and so different rules apply.

I know this is probably far too much to ask for, but if you pay the same level of fees that you started on, does that mean if as a scottish student you start on no fees then transfer to an english uni, do you still get it free? That would be awesome, if extremely unlikely :L anyone know though?

You're not on the same level of fees that you started on. That's complete rubbish as I've already said. You would get in that situation whatever students who go to an English uni usually get.

You pay the same fee as your previous academic year if you are progressing onto the next year of that full-time course. I don't know if this applies if you take a gap year/(s) in between.
