Tuition Fees Guide
Any home students in the UK starting their course in or after September 2006 will come under the new laws for tuition fees. This will rise to £9,000 from September 2012.
Previously to this the maximum a university could charge for tuition was £1.250. This would be paid either by the student’s family / guardian(s) or by the government – depending upon the results of the assessment forms.
The maximum amount a university can charge students for tuition fees is now £3,145 (although this may change slightly from year to year). Students studying at university in the UK from September 2012 may be charged up to a maximum of £9,000.
This is the maximum that a university can charge for a course to home students but not all universities will charge this, some opt for lower fees to try and attract students to their course.
The good news is that you will not have to pay any of the fees whilst you are studying, the government will pay those for you. The bad news is that the government will add the fees to the total amount you owe them with your student loan.
You will never see the money for the fees yourself, it goes straight from the government to your university / college, so you can’t siphon it off!
There is no grant for fees, there is just the loan, referred to as the ‘fee loan’.
