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:

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.
