    Silly question but does this include students who go to uni this year? Sept 2011.. will the prices go up to £9000 (possibly) in 2012 when students are in their second year?

    There have been a few more institutions revealing their fee levels recently. I've just added the University of Plymouth (£9000), the University of Cumbria (£8300) and Norwich University College of the Arts (£8500).


    Let me know if there are any more that I've missed.

    whilst one could argue it seems ludicrous for these lower ranking uni's to be charging the high fees, you can kind of see why they're doing it. If they charge £4000 it's like saying 'hello everyone, our courses aren't as good as theres' and they do want to improve, perhaps believing this will help them improve standards?

    Having said that, LSE will only be charging £8000

    It doesn't matter if you are Oxford or UEL, the financial situation is pretty much the same in that fees such as this need to be charged to break even on courses.

    Always helps when you have a potload of cash from Gadaffi. I think it's the future of higher education in this country, no longer will we be subsidised by the state but by murderous dictators instead. Excellent!

    The LSE has done the government and OFFA an enormous favour. It has knocked on the head the "we have to charge £9000 to show we are as good as the next guy argument".

    It also means that their access plan is going to get waived through even it is says that they will do outreach at Eton and Winchester and offer bursaries to people with fewer than three Porsches.

    Weren't the government aiming for £6k to be the max? Some appear visibly angry when asked about fees 'trebling' and point out that it's only 'doubled' unless they are specifically granted permission for more. Even then, £1500 off from £27k is only about 5.5%, and you'd still be paying over £30k including your maintenance loan. I reckon the government won't want to back LSE with this as it's still way off, but it could be interesting to see what they do because it is a move in the right direction.

    In monetary terms the difference is trivial. It represents an important breach in the principle that you must charge the maximum to avoid being considered second rate. In a sense if anyone could do it, it would be LSE; no historic buildings, cheap courses and lots of international fees.
