The setting of fees for higher education courses is devolved. It is for each administration to decide how they deploy their resources and develop their higher education system. The approach followed after we have left the EU is a matter for each administration to determine, taking account of the provisions in the Withdrawal Agreement. There are no plans to hold discussions with the devolved administrations on this at present.
