University of Nottingham set to raise tuition fees beyond £9,000

Oh ffs

Nottingham is set to charge more than £9,000 in fees. New students joining the university in September 2017 will be hit by a ‘inflationary increase’ from £9,000 to £9,250.

The inflation rates will not affect students who are starting this September or continuing with their studies.

On a national scale, only several universities have admitted to a rise in tuition fees from September 2017/18. The University of Nottingham believes it is one of the first to offer that this rise will not apply to returning students.

Vice-Chancellor for the University, Professor Sir David Greenaway said: “Since the £9,000 fee level was introduced in 2012 it has not been subject to inflation and has not reflected the rising costs we face in providing high quality education.”

“While we believe this rise offers excellent value for money, and reflects our world-class teaching and learning environment, we want to ensure students have as much information in advance about tuition fees to help with their decision-making.

“We have also made a decision that returning students in 2017, which includes those joining us in September 2016 and no doubt anxiously awaiting A-level results, will be charged the uninflated £9,000 fee throughout the course of their degrees.”
