HC Deb 16 October 2002 vol 390 c883W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much university tuition fees are what they will be next year; and what plans she has to increase this amount. [73382]

Margaret Hodge

In the academic year 2002/03, the maximum student contribution towards tuition fees for full-time undergraduates in England and Wales attending courses at publicly funded institutions of higher education is £1,100. This represents a 2.4 per cent. increase over the corresponding fee rate for the previous year. Fee rates are uprated annually on the basis of price inflation; those for 2003/04 are due to be announced in December.
