    Why hasn't the rest of the Russell and 1994 Group announced their intentions to do so yet? We all know they will at some point.

    Add Aston to the £9000 group.
    I'm honestly starting to feel like almost every university is going to charge full fees now. The number of universities hoping to charge the maximum seems to be rising and rising.

    Edit: Forgot the link.

    Urgh that looked promising..... but then it wasn't.

    Basically all the Universities that I've ever considered are gonna be 9k. Great.

    York in meetings have said they need 7.5k to break even. Also there's the worry now that if you charge <9k people will simply think it's not as good as the other universities charging 9k. Ridiculous. The lib dems are going to die a most horrible death

    There was always that worry. When fees were increased to £3k there was exactly the same concern and, in the end, almost all unis charged the full amount. The same is happening now. What a surprise.

    Funny how it has now been merged then isn't it?
    Errr.....yeah....

    I reported it earlier and a university mod merged it. GB isn't a university mod and therefore couldn't merge it (as he explained).

    All unis will want to charge £9k for 3 main reasons:

    1. Get the most money from home students.

    2. As a mark of quality for prospective foreign students. If a university can't charge home students the maximum, there must be something wrong with the university.

    3. As a mark of quality for prospective external funding bodies. A company or research council would want to give money to the best university, not the cheapest.

    I know someone mentioned Leeds recently, but just to confirm that Vice Chancellor of Leeds, Michael Arthur, has just held a couple of Q&A sessions with the main point of topic being how they plan on having fees at 9k with various discounts and bursaries to be put in place based on applicants' parents' income.
