    Fees can only increase in line with inflation, so a 5% year on year increase is extremely unlikely.

    Ah my quick maths was wrong but still 250 on 9250 is 2.7% which is above inflation. I think they use RPIX.

    Just a question but say I get into uni this year, do I pay £9250 every year or do I have to pay £9500 next year and so on?

    WhoDaresWins and just to point out that the tuition fee loan covers any increase.

    This is RPIX https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/infla...imeseries/cdkq

    Tagging PQ - what date do they use to calculate RPIX for the fee increase?

    You're an international student so you will be paying more anyway.

    Actually I'm sponsored so overall I end up getting paid to go to university.

    But what I'm paying literally has nothing to do with my original comment. My point is that £1 in 2017 money isn't as valuable as £1 in 2012 money so you're still paying less than someone who went to uni in 2012 anyway. In fact given Brexit you're paying loads less, closer to £6000 per year in 2012 money

    Wut?

    The FX rate makes no difference to a UK student paying UK fees. Inflation has been at historic lows in the period since 2012. £9250 now was worth about £8500 in 2012.
