No the maximum any university can charge for a home student is £3000 pa. From what I can tell most universities are charging the maximum including mine.

Some will charge less than £3000 per year. I think Leeds Metropolitan and University of East London talked about lowering fees but I would imagine those who are ranked highly would keep the £3000 as it is.

The problem is universities have to charge for demand. The reason why most universities are charging full fees and risking not filling places is becuase of image. If somthing is cheaper its percieved as not as good, and having cheaper places is one way that could damage a universities reputation. For example if Leeds Met decides to charge £1500 PA people will wonder why its cheaper than say Manchester Met.

I think the charges will be linked with demand, cost of running course, and the universities status. The fees will make universities operations more business like.

It's ridiculous though. HESA, recently released figures which show that the average annual salary of students leaving full-time courses is merely £16,000, which pretty much makes the argument for top up fees unjustifiable (one of the governments main argument was those with a degree will receive a much higher salary compared to those without).

They probably still do, baring in mind most people that dropped out at 16 are still on 12,000k max by the time they are 21.

Having A levels will increase that salary a lot though. I think the average graduate in the UK earns at least £30k.

If you applied this year, and deferred entry till 2006 then you pay the normal amount (£1,200 I think) for the duration of your course
