Tuition fees in Wales for 2013–14 range from £5,850 to £9,000 for full-time undergraduate degree courses, with the average fee level at around £8,200.
All institutions were required to involve their student unions in finalising their fee plan.
To help offset the increase in tuition fees, fee plans also included proposals for mentoring and raising the aspirations of targeted groups of potential students before applying for university; a range of bursaries for students from low-income or disadvantaged backgrounds; support in areas such as study and employability skills; encouragement to take-up priority subjects such as science, engineering and modern foreign languages, and provide more opportunities for study through the medium of Welsh; and improve ICT and library facilities.
Students ordinarily resident in Wales receive a non-repayable Fee Grant to cover the difference between the maximum tuition fee loan available (£3,575 in 2013–14) and the tuition fee actually charged by the UK university (a maximum grant of £5,425 if a tuition fee of £9,000 is charged).
Reddin Survey of University Tuition Fees
The table below lists the annual tuition fees that were charged to new students entering the first year of an undergraduate degree or a one-year taught postgraduate course, most recently for those entering in September/October 2013. Note that these are tuition fees only for the full academic year and do not include accommodation, living costs or travel costs, etc. The fees information for this university is an extract from the Reddin Fees Survey – a survey of UK university tuition fees. See the full table listing all universities participating in the survey.
Fees for UK nationals with UK residence (home students) and EU nationals with EU residence (EU students) are the same, whereas fees for other overseas students are typically differentiated by course, usually in two bands: one for arts/classroom based courses and the other, typically higher, for science/laboratory based courses (fees for medicine and dentistry are generally much higher). Universities in Scotland and Northern Ireland may charge a different fee for RUK (rest of the UK) students.
Postgraduate course fees do not necessarily fit neatly in fee bands and further enquiry should be made to a university (or its website) for the exact fees for a particular course.
