    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.
    What I read somewhere (will post source if I find it) is that LSE wanted to charge £9k, but mass student protests meant it was voted on £8k, but at the last minute they met in the middle and said they'll charge £8.5k.

    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.
    It was hardly a principle though, more an excuse to charge as much as possible. Even so, I don't see how the government can support it seeing as it's still way over the intended £6k maximum.

    The Welsh universities have been sent back to the drawing board on their plans to charge £9000.

    Hey, I don't know if anyone's noticed already, but the UCAS site says that starting from July 12th course fees are going to be available through their 'course search' feature.

    Are they going to provide a running commentary on the judicial review challenges as well?

    I've just seen the Complete University Guide website, and it was really useful for finding out fees for all the unis. It was done quite a lot clearer than the OFFA website

    Offa has a full list of the access agreements here http://www.offa.org.uk/access-agreements/

    Doesn't list the fees directly but they should be in each individual agreement.

    Time to reactivate the fee tracker... 27 HE institutions are lowering their 2012 fees to below £7,500

    http://www.offa.org.uk/press-release...t-for-2012-13/

    OFFA will not be naming the institutions that have submitted revised agreements. However, when it announces its decisions on revised agreements for 2012-13, it will name institutions whose access agreements have been approved.
    however University of West London is one of them http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-15596986

    The timing has been carefully coordinated with the UCAS cycle to ensure maximum confusion to applicants...

    What's the betting that the vast majority (if not all) of those universities are post 1992 institutions. So much for not being able to afford to teach subjects at a lower price point than the 1994/Russell/other universities.
    about 31 have previously announced fees lower than 9000 according post #2... probably they're tweaking their fees to jump through the latest hoop.
    I'm not sure if the 20,000 places being offered as carrots are being magic-ed out of thin air or taken off unis with access plans deemed unacceptable... and I'm a bit busy atm.

    UEA, Heythrop and the Institute of Education are all very close to the £7500 level (or at least they were until the method of averaging was changed) and so I suspect they will be trying to get on the right side of the line. LSE may apply. Although their average fee was £8468, their total cost per student after bursaries was £7529. If they switch from bursaries to fee remission, they could easily qualify.

    The 20,000 places have been creamed off all HEIs. That shouldn't be a problem to those with a lot of AAB students, but to others (and some more famous names have low AAB percentages) that is a net loss of students.

    I'm so glad it was only £3k per year when I was at Uni.

    No way is any uni worth £9k! What a joke! :0
