Thirteen universities and colleges in Wales have had their fee plans approved by HEFCW,
and can now increase tuition fee levels for undergraduate courses from the 2012
The institutions - 10 universities and three further education colleges – are now able to
charge students on full-time undergraduate courses fees above the £4,000 basic rate
ranging up to £9,000 a year.
The overall fees levels, until now regarded as proposals, start at £3,850 for some HND
courses, and range from £5,850 to £9,000 for full-time undergraduate degree courses, and PGCE courses, with the average fee level for all at around £8,800.
All institutions were required to take careful account of the views of their students in
finalising their plan.
