《完全大学指南》(Complete University Guide)针对英国大学进行的年度费用调查显示,在2020/21学年在英国就读课堂授课式研究生课程的海外学生平均须支付16081英镑,比上一年增加近1000英镑。






高等教育政策研究所(Higher Education Policy Institute)政策与倡导主任雷切尔·休伊特(Rachel Hewitt)表示,疫情大流行之前的迹象表示,即使学费上涨,海外学生的需求也将保持不变。




英国研究生教育理事会(UK Council for Graduate Education)副主席吉莉安·休斯顿(Gillian Houston)表示,很难确切查明所有费用变动背后的因素,而且学费的平均水平经常会因某些大学的高级课程而被扭曲。

Where the numbers come from

Data are based on a survey conducted by the Complete University Guide. The survey results have been published annually since 2002, when Mike Reddin first presented them.

Institutions were asked to provide a typical fee, although some chose to provide a range. Figures are for guidance only. Fees for specific courses may vary from those shown. The averages published in the article exclude institutions that provided a range.

The Knowledge Partnership has been publishing our Tuition Fees Benchmarking Tool since 2012 so it is really interesting to compare the results from the survey with the published fees. TKP collect the published fees (both International and UK/EU), for all university courses in the UK at both undergraduate and postgraduate taught level and as such can provide a more accurate view of the trends in fees. Examining the data indicates that International fees for classroom and lab based courses have increased by around 5% each year since 2017/18, not just in 2018/19 or 2020/21. The percentage increase figures reported in the article are different to the increases we see using the data in the Fees Benchmarking Tool. For classroom based courses international fees increased by 5.1% in 2017/18, 4.8% in 2018/19 and 4.9% in 2020/21. A similar increase can be seen in lab based courses: 5.2% in 2017/18, 4.3% in 2018/19 and 4.6% in 2020/21. This indicates that fees at universities have not increased in 2020/21 by any more than in previous years. For MBAs the picture is slightly more complicated. Just over a third of universities (36%) offering an MBA charge the same fee to both International and UK/EU students. Using the benchmarking tool we can see a steady increase in MBA fees, that, in recent years, is broadly in line with the increase in fees for classroom and lab based programmes. (For international fees: 2.5% 2017/18, 4.6% in 2018/19 and 5.0% in 2020/21). The final thoughts we have are around the timing for fees setting. As the article points out the fees for 2020/21 would have been decided before the covid-19 pandemic hit the UK. In our experience most universities publish their fees between September and January for the following academic year, which means the decision making process around this happens much earlier in Spring, so the fees for 2020/21 would have been set in 2019, up to a year before the pandemic when there was no indication that the 2020/21 academic year would be any different to 2019/20. The fees setting process for 2021/22 will have been taking place during lockdown so it will be interesting to see whether or not universities choose to increase fees by more than inflation or to hold or decrease their fees as THE are reporting is happening in the US.
