Glyndŵr University breaks the mould of higher education in the UK

July 11 2011

Glyndŵr University today confirmed its commitment to widening access by announcing an average fee of £6,643 for full-time undergraduate degrees from 2012/13.

The University has adopted a model of differentiated rates to reflect the cost of delivery, recognising that some degrees are more expensive to offer than others. These will depend on the type of degree and the subject studied. Fees will start below £4,000 for foundation degrees, and range to £7,750 for STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths).

The University’s fee plan recognises the need to avoid, as far as possible, burdening students with large debt when they leave university.

Professor Michael Scott, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive said: “We have placed student interest at the heart of our fee plan – but not at the expense of quality.

“We are committed to achieving change in the higher education sector, and this demands that we are brave and bold. We are not seeking the highest fees to replace teaching grants into the university, we are seeking to continue to do the best thing for our students and community.”

Additional financial support packages and advisory and welfare support will be provided to students. For example, bursaries for Communities First students,  and the ‘Money Doctors’ scheme, run in partnership with the FE sector.

Professor Scott added: “The University has no mortgages or large loans and has been very careful about its financial management for years. As none of our income goes to servicing debts, we are able to offer this unique fee structure. In this way, our financial prudence can benefit all our students.

“The University puts the quality of its degrees and the student experience at the forefront of its decision-making. We have a sophisticated system for costing our degree programmes, and have been predicting changes to the funding of higher education. We understand the cost of delivery and have based our fee plan on this in order to ensure quality is maintained.

“Our mission is to ensure students in north east Wales can study, and develop the skills they need, on an affordable basis, and that their successes will directly contribute to the economic development of the region.

“It is essential to us that we continue to respect the needs of the country, contribute to economic development and social justice and keep opportunities open to our students.”
