Students: Fees and Charges

Volume 497: debated on Wednesday 14 October 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how much on average a (a) UK and (b) non-UK citizen pays in tuition fees to study a veterinary science degree course at a university in England. (291536)

The information is not held by the Department.

In the academic year 2009-10 students from the UK and EU will pay up to £3,225 in tuition fees to study veterinary science degree courses. Total expenditure over the length of their course will depend on whether their institution charges the maximum fee, and on the length of the course. Loans are available to eligible students to cover the full cost of tuition fees.

Tuition fees for international students from outside of the EU are unregulated and therefore HEIs are free to set fee levels as they see fit.
