Chris Higgins, the institution’s vice-chancellor, said today that the university would charge a “headline fee” of £9,000 a year, subject to agreement with the Office for Fair Access.
Details of financial support for poorer students, which is likely to include fee waivers and bursaries, have not yet been set out by the institution.
Durham’s decision follows confirmation earlier this week that the University of Oxford also intends to charge £9,000 a year.
Professor Higgins said: “We offer a distinctive and transformative student experience that is reflected in the affinity our students retain for the university and their college long after graduation, so an investment in study at Durham has lifelong rewards.
“With our plans for a generous and flexible programme of financial support, we aim to ensure that affordability will not be a barrier to Durham attracting the best and brightest students.”
