To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what assessment he has made of likely fee levels for postgraduate taught courses in (a) 2012-13, (b) 2013-14 and (c) 2014-15; and if he will make a statement.
We have no basis on which to make such an assessment. Fee rates for the vast majority of taught postgraduate courses are unregulated and set by each individual institution. Lord Browne noted that taught postgraduate education was a successful part of the higher education system and found no evidence that changes to funding or student finance were needed to support student demand or access. We will set out our priorities for taught postgraduate provision and our response to the postgraduate review in the forthcoming higher education White Paper.
