Bit more on the exception and not the rule...

Report in the Telegraph (quoting Research Weekly - who don't seem to have it on their website - that AVERAGE tuition fee charges per University will be £8600.

And here's the clincher: MORE THAN HALF are going to charge the maximum £9000.

Except truly, they can't, can they? As then charging the maximum would be the norm, not the exception - by definition.

I hope Simon Hughes is hot on the tail of this in his role as 'Access Czar' for higher education - as presumably he's going to be instigating some fairly strict criteria for all this, in the very near future...

  1. The Guardian published data on the 22 universities to have declared intentions so far on their data blog:


    The average *mean* from that is around £8633 (assuming a mean is used for Universities that have declared a range of fees).
