The Department has taken note of universities' intentions on tuition charges for undergraduate higher education, which were published by the Office for Fair Access on 12 July. The Department has not made a specific estimate of the number of universities which will charge £9,000 for PGCE courses in core subjects within the English Baccalaureate in 2012-13. The Department for Education is proposing bursaries of up to £20,000 in 2012/13 to encourage the best graduates into teaching and support them during their training. The most generous bursaries are in mathematics, science and modern languages, which are core English Baccalaureate subjects.
