In response to today's announcement by the Office for Fair Access (OFFA) on revised access agreements for 2012-13, Professor Sue Piotrowski, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic) for Canterbury Christ Church University, said:
“Following the Government's Higher Education White Paper, we have made some minor changes to our bursary packages. We have not changed or lowered our fees from our original announcement of £8,500.
“However, by slightly amending what we can offer in financial help via an increase in fee waivers, more prospective students could be paying £7,500 or less to study at Canterbury Christ Church University.
“A fee waiver is a reduction in fees, available to prospective students who fulfil the University’s criteria. During the next week we will be contacting all students who have already applied to inform them of any changes to their financial support package."
