Draft Higher Education (Fee Limits For Accelerated Courses) (England) Regulations 2018 — 20% Per Year Extra Fees for Accelerated Courses — 22 Jan 2019 at 16:15
The majority of MPs voted to set the cap on university fees for accelerated courses at a level 20% higher than that which applies to traditionally paced courses. The fee-cap for accelerated courses was generally set at £11,100 per year with lower caps which apply in particular circumstances. An accelerated course is one which takes at least a year less than usual.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That the draft Higher Education (Fee Limits For Accelerated Courses) (England) Regulations 2018, which were laid before this House on 29 November 2018, be approved.
An explanatory note accompanying the regulations states:
- An “accelerated course” means a higher education course where the number of academic years applicable to the course is at least one fewer than would normally be the case for that course or a course of equivalent content leading to the grant of the same or an equivalent academic award.
As accelerated courses may lead to an overall reduction in fees when compared to a traditional length course this isn't a vote on it is possible to say how someone voting solely on the issue of higher or lower tuition fees would have voted.
