Higher Education

Student finance support

We have confirmed that the maximum tuition fees for full-time and part time undergraduate courses will remain at 2019/20 levels of £9,250 for a standard full-time course. In addition to this, maximum undergraduate loans for living costs will increase by forecast inflation, as will disabled students’ allowances for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Ensuring quality and value for money in higher education

The opportunity to study at university should be open to anyone with the talent and potential to benefit from higher education. With students and taxpayers sharing the cost of higher education it’s right that we challenge those institutions which could appear to be more focused on ‘getting bums on seats’ than getting students into high quality courses worth paying for.
