    I suppose there is a chance that someone would turn down an offer from Oxford to go to SELU to save £550a year.

    I think what everyone's forgetting that yes, they may be a crap uni, but if they want to keep providing courses they'll have to get the money somehow, now that the government funding has stopped.

    I have not added this yet as I want to find a source for it online - either a link to the universities own website or a news site like the BBC.

    The comparison really makes no difference. For the majority of LSBU students, it's not like they could go to Oxbridge; they can't just think, "Oh well, for the extra £550, I may as well go to Cambridge." Whether or not they deem that to be a fair price to pay remains to be seen.

    Coventry sets variable fees for 2012

    As you will know from our campaign against the Government’s proposals for higher tuition fees, the teaching funding for universities from 2012 has been largely removed, to be replaced by higher tuition fees between £6000 and £9000 per year. The vast majority of those who have confirmed their fees to date, including Warwick, will charge £9000 per year.

    At Coventry, the University has undertaken a root and branch review of its courses and their costs which shows that classroom-based and laboratory-based courses are very different. It is also determined to continue to encourage applicants from a wide range of backgrounds, regardless of income, and to set a fair fee for all.

    We are now able to inform you of Coventry’s plans for 2012.

    Coventry has set six fee levels, with an average fee of £7,300 per year across all courses, and £8,100 per year for degree courses above the ‘basic level of £6,000’:

    • Part-time courses with employers – up to £4,600 pa
    • Foundation and most part-time courses – up to £4,800 pa
    • The classroom-based degrees, such as Business Studies, English and Psychology - £7,500 pa
    • The arts and activity-based practical degrees, such as Fine Art, Geography and Music - £7,900 pa
    • The laboratory-based, practical degrees, such as Media Production, Computing and Biological Sciences - £8,300 pa
    • Specialist degree courses where Coventry competes directly with top-ranking universities both in the UK and overseas, such as Automotive and Transport Design, Engineering, and Fashion; these are the ones that are the most expensive to run - £9,000 pa

    For all its courses, the University believes that it will offer unbeatable value for money. It seeks to provide a competitively priced, excellent academic experience with opportunities for international study and a strong reputation for employability.

    The University has also listened to CUSU and to prospective students and their parents. The University understands that we are looking for value for money with no hidden extras. So Coventry’s fees will include core textbooks, starter packs, printing credits and the costs of field trip or day visits in the UK. It will also use its scholarship and bursary money to support students from low income backgrounds with cash and fee waivers.

    The University is focused on providing excellent teaching and a quality academic experience. It will guarantee the contact time per course, thanks to one of the best student/staff ratios in the country. 94% of last year’s graduates went into employment, further study or professional training. And it will seek to ensure that we are enriched by the opportunities offered at Coventry to become part of a global community of learning which will serve us well in our future careers.

    Hence, although the University is disappointed to be forced to increase fees in 2012, it is convinced that it will continue to attract students from both the UK and overseas, and be able to continue our success of the last few years.

    The Students’ Union has been campaigning nationally against increasing tuition fees. However, at a local level, our focus has been ensuring that students get value for money. We have been greatly involved in the discussions around the fee prices Coventry will charge and we are confident that the fee levels reflect the cost of the course.

    Both the Students’ Union and the University agree that moving all costs related to the course into the fee will be beneficial for students as there will not be any hidden course costs.

    We will continue to represent students to the best of our abilities regardless of the fees that they pay.

    It would be false economy to do so, because lower-income students will have their Oxbridge tuition fees subsidised, so they'd probably be paying less for the degree at Oxbridge than they would at SELU anyway.

    The government is forcing unis into charging near or at the top fee allowed by cutting the teaching budgets massively. Bunch of ****ers.

    Added City University London to the map. It's been announced they are to charge £9000 fees, but I still need an official source from the university to add yet (let me know if they add a news story to their own site).
