Canterbury Christ Church University has announced its intention to charge £8,500 per year for new Home and EU undergraduates who start university in September 2012.
The University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Robin Baker CMG, said: “After careful consideration, and with the Governors’ approval, we have agreed to set the 2012-13 Home and EU undergraduate fee at £8,500 for all full time undergraduate programmes included within the scope of the Government’s new fee arrangements.
“In agreeing this figure, the senior management team and the Governing Body have been influenced fundamentally by our University values. We have taken into account the concerns of our future students, and their families, and sought to try and limit the amount of debt in as far as we can. The £8,500 fee balances what we need to offer for our courses to be sustainable, taking into consideration our commitment to provide generous access provision.
“This fee, together with the range of financial support we’ll make available, reflects our determination to ensure university education at Canterbury Christ Church remains accessible to those who will most benefit from it, particularly for students from lower income backgrounds. In addition to the government’s financial assistance, we’ll be offering generous support packages, likely to include bursaries, fee waivers and scholarships.”
