Same fees, more help

April 14, 2011

It is not the case that "lower fees have been proposed" for students resident in Wales who study at Welsh universities ("Underlying disorders", 7 April). Subject to the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales approving fee plans, the potential top fee in Wales will be the same as in England. But students domiciled in Wales will not pay more than now (wherever they study in the UK). The balance due to the university will be met by public funding.
