Foreign Student Fees To Remain Stable

16 Nov
The proposed increase in university tuition fees for home and EU students in the UK may end up benefitting international students. In the last few weeks, the government has revealed controversial plans to increase the standard fees for British students from £3,000 to £9,000 per year. However, a number of important figures have assured international students that their fees will not rise in the same way. In fact, it is quite the opposite. During his recent trip to China, Prime Minister David Cameron revealed that raising tuition fees for UK students will mean two things:

“It will make sure our universities are well funded …and we won’t go on increasing the fees for overseas students so fast. In the past we have been pushing up the fees on overseas students and using that as a way of keeping them down for domestic students.” “We have done the difficult thing. We have put up contributions for British students. Yes, foreign students will still pay a significant amount of money but we should now be able to keep that growth under control.”

David Willetts, UK minister for universities and science, echoed this sentiment to Indian students during his current visit to the Asian country. Similarly, according to the Times of India, Ritu Gupta, from the University of Leeds South Asia Office in New Delhi, believes that the fees increase will make UK universities more of a ‘level playing ground and Indian students will no longer have to compensate for the deficit caused by home students’.Here at the ForeignStudents Blog we will keep you up to date on all the latest news on UK tuition fees.

Visible Economy  creates news articles and videos related to economics which are easily integrated into educational curricula, their upcoming project with musician ‘Skyzoo’ will engage thousands of American students in an online video stream.

 As traditional journalism shifts into the digital realms, the line between content producers and consumers is very fine, students and young people are increasingly seeking an education which engages them by relating to their world of new media interactions.

Those in the entertainment industry are tending to this need, while universities begin to explore the new pedagogical opportunities found in bridging the gap between convention and innovation in education.
