Students 'want more info' on tuition fees

By Wesleyan

Too many UK universities are keeping students in the dark when it comes to telling them about how their tuition fees are being spent, the results of a new survey suggest.

All but one in four of the 15,000 students questioned for the 2015 Student Academic Experience Survey say they do not think universities are providing enough information about how the money is used.

Just 18 per cent of those surveyed say they think they are given enough information about where their fees go.

More than one in three undergraduates, meanwhile, say with the benefit of hindsight they may have opted to take a different course.

However, 87 per cent do acknowledge that they are either very or fairly satisfied with the quality of the course they are on.

The survey was conducted by the Higher Education Authority and the Higher Education Policy Institute.
