Striving to Promote Equality and Diversity in UK Higher Education

Times Higher Education – Diversity charges for higher fees

Breaching £6,000 threshold will have access cost, Offa guidance says. Rebecca Attwood reports

Elite universities charging top tuition fees of £9,000 a year will be expected to spend as much as £1,000 per student on measures to improve the diversity of their student bodies, according to guidance published by the access watchdog.

The Office for Fair Access said this week that universities with very few poor students that are planning to set high fees from 2012-13 should spend about 30 per cent of the income gained from the portion of fees above the £6,000 threshold on access measures.
