    A total of 139 institutions submitted plans to OFFA by the deadline last night, This includes 122 Higher Education Institutions (which includes Universities and University Colleges) and 17 Further Education Colleges. An institutions would submit the plans if they wish to charge fees of more than £6000 a year. OFFA will look at each institutions plans to see what measures they have in place to widen access to people from all backgrounds and may request adjustments or changes. All plans should be approved by 11th July.

    There are a total of 123 Higher Education Institutions offering full-time degrees and 124 directly funded Further Education Colleges offering some sort of degree. Additional institutions may still submit plans to OFFA but they may not be approved before the 11th July.

    Royal Veterinary College plan to charge £7500-£9000 fees.

    UCP Marjon plan £7800 fees.

    I've also heard that DeMontfort University and Bucks New University have both announced their fees, but don't have an official source to link to on the uni website. Similarly, I still don't have such a source for Lincoln either

    Let me know if sources for these or any other institution become available.

    I did have both of them, but thanks.

    The first was a typo and I'd added Winchester twice in the first table column - so thanks for helping me spot that.

    The second is not actually Plymouth Uni, but Plymouth University College St Mark and St John (UCP Marjon) which I just added in my last post

    Keep watching for more though and let me know as soon as the details are out

    2012 Fees Announcement

    Enquiry Number: xxxxxxx
    Dear Joe

    Following the Government review and changes in legislation regarding Higher Education, I can confirm that we are proposing to set a tuition fee of £9,000 a year for UK/EU undergraduates starting in 2012.

    We are committed to ensuring that tuition fees do not act as a barrier to those aspiring to come to a world leading university and have developed a funding package to reward those with excellent qualifications and assist those from lower income backgrounds.

    Please visit our 2012 Tuition Fee website for full details of what you may be entitled to in terms of financial support from the University.

    The fee income we receive is used to enhance students’ academic and social experience by investing in the quality of teaching and research, student services and a range of academic facilities. It also helps us to provide a range of initiatives to support access for all to higher education.

    We have secured one of the top five scores for student satisfaction every year since the National Student Satisfaction Survey began and are ranked in the top 20 universities in the UK by the Guardian and in the top 1% of the world’s Higher Education Institutions. We are committed to our continued investment in the student experience from 2012 onwards.

    If you have any questions about the courses we offer or how the above changes may affect you, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Kind regards

    Bath Spa University is the latest to announce £9000 tuition fees - what do you think of all these institutions charging £9000? Why are they all wanting to set the maximum?

    Peer pressure ;D

    But seriously, probably to cope with the education cuts which sucks really, as it's probably going to sever many people's chances of breaking the poverty cycle but hopefully there will be plenty of bursaries etc. to help us poorer people

    I think its the thought of being looked down upon. Any university that doesn't charge £9000 will be percieved as second best.

    The deadline yesterday was to submit their plans to OFFA (Office for fair access) if they wanted to charge more than £6000 fees. OFFA needs to approve such plans to ensure each university is doing enough to widen access.

    There was apparently no requirement for university to make their plans known to the public by that deadline - some announced their plans before, some after and still many have not announced their plans yet, but we know evey university will be wanting to charge over £6000 as we think every last one of them has submitted a plan to OFFA.

    yes, the ones that have offered lower fees tend to be the lower ranked uni's aswell so with less money they're probably just gonna get worse. It may be an opportunity for East London university, one of the lowest ranking that is charging the maximum, to overtake all the other lower ranking unis to maybe become an average ranking university.

    At the moment, I suspect none. Please ask the question again in 12 months!

    Or will it mean that applicants go to South Bank instead. In reality it is likely to be more complicated than this. Each university is likely to have a different package of assistance for which there are different qualifying amounts. The real difference between the cost of attending different universities is likely to be much more significant than the headline fees.
