    Is there going to be a new thread every time this happens? There should just be one big thread to post all announcements of new uni fee's being released.
    There effectively is. It's not an official thread or anything though, but it's there. It just gets ignored :p:

    I'm considering turning it into a temporary sticky tbh. Even then it'll get ignored....

    Anyway, merged now.

    Unfortunately we have these things called 'league tables', which are unbiased and based on sound research, rather than our random perceptions on the ground.
    :rofl:

    I would explain but....I give up. After three years I've actually given up.

    But...seriously? I mean...seriously? So it doesn't bother you that league tables vary significantly and that, even if I were to use the same league table, I could still got significantly different results by weighting the same criteria differently?

    It's a statistical game and there is not these "league table ladder" in real life.

    LJM should not be charging fees in line with the University of Liverpool. The fact that universities are all going to have to charge this amount to fill the gap of government funding highlights the absolute joke of a fact that these institutions were receiving identical funding for producing worse graduates.
    They weren't all receiving the same amount of "funding".

    University of Deby announces fees which depend on what the course costs to teach... radical.

    Derby University to buck fees trend
    (UKPA) – 2 hours ago
    Derby University will buck the trend of charging students £9,000 for next year by setting fees at less than £7,500 for the majority of courses.
    The institution has announced it will charge on a "sliding scale" to reflect the cost of providing different courses.
    "Specialist" courses, which feature additional experiences, such as field trips, and account for a fifth of the degrees provided at Derby, will have fees set at £7,995, the university said.
    Fees for "resource-intensive" degree which require specialist facilities will be set at £7,495 and fees for "classroom-based" courses will be £6,995.
    The university said it would reserve the right to introduce a "premium" category of courses at £9,000.

    What happened to the idea in this thread that even ex polys need to charge £9k to cover their costs? It seems like Derby doesn't, so why do places like Liverpool John Moores?

    Tough ****, they can do what they want. If they want to increase fees, so be it. If they want to increase course requirements, so be it.
    After deceiving you and wasting one of your valuable places on ucas :rolleyes:

    What about other universities like Durham, UCL, Leicester etc that could potentially offer bursaries and grants?

    No offence, but people who are only intellectually capable enough to attend LJMU should not be going to university at all.
    Do you know anyone going to Liverpool John Moores?

    I know several and to a man/woman they are perfectly smart, reasonable people who are getting reasonable grades and have good jobs lined up

    Normally I'd let your arrogance pass but you're not even at university and your superior holier-than-thou attitude and unbridled generalisations are really really really getting on my nerves

    Leicester are offering a £1250 annual discount for students meeting their offers (source), making their effective fee £7750. Maybe this should be given some credence in the tracker?

    Guys, those of you who have posted in this thread so far might be interested to see the map we've added to the first post showing all the unis and the fee levels they are planning on charging: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1598178

    Take a look and tell us what you think. Are there any surprises? How much is your university charging? Are there any student protests at your university about the fee changes?

    £8,450 next year!!!

    http://www.wessexscene.co.uk/news/to...o-charge-8450/

    South East London University have announced they will be charging £8,450 for tution fees for students starting September 2012.

    This university is constantly ranked in the bottom 3 in the Guardian University league tables. Who is going to pay this kind of money to go to this university? They are charging too much when Oxford and Cambridge will only cost £550 more per year if they choose to charge the maximum £9000.

    it's gonna be the norm. saying who will pay that when it's just £500 more for oxbridge is irrelevant, because you'll need the grades and experience to go there too. it's not just a matter of paying more money when talking about that sort of issue. the real question is if someone will want to pay that much at a lower ranking university, because they may not deem the trade-off between that standard of degree and going into that level of debt a worthy one due to the job prospects after graduating.
