Variable Tuition Fees in England: Assessing Their Impact on Students and Higher Education Institutions--A Fourth Report. Research Report
Brown, Nigel; Ramsden, Brian
Universities UK
This is the fourth annual report on the effects of the introduction of variable fees arrangements for UK and EU-domiciled full-time undergraduates attending higher education institutions in England. This report, like its predecessors, brings together a range of information from publicly accessible sources and the institutions themselves about the demand for higher education, the nature of the student body, the fees and bursary arrangements and the financial situation of institutions. Although it is primarily concerned with full-time undergraduate students, it also seeks to provide information for measuring any impact of the changes to full-time undergraduate fees on the fees and demand for part-time higher education. While the major focus of this work relates to England, some statistics have also been presented for the other countries of the United Kingdom, in order to provide a basis for comparative analysis. This report provides information on the impact of fees on student enrolments in the second year (2007/08) in which variable fees for full-time undergraduate students in England applied. Appended are: (1) Applicants by overseas country; (2) First-year undergraduate students by qualification and domicile, 2003/04-2007/08; (3) Cross-border flows: data for 2003/04-2006/07; and (4) Enrolments of full-time UK-domiciled undergraduates by detailed subject of study, 2003/04-2007/08 and trend analysis. (Contains 15 tables, 15 charts, and 21 notes.) [For the third report, see ED536581.]
