Top fees 'at half of universities', a BBC survey finds

Far more English university students than originally expected will be paying the maximum tuition fee of £9,000 a year, BBC research suggests.

About half of the 111 universities contacted by the BBC said they would charge £9,000 for all their courses.

And about two thirds said they would charge the top rate for at least some courses.

Prof Janet Beer, vice chancellor of Oxford Brookes University, explained to the BBC's Reeta Chakrabharti how students will be able to reduce the cost of studying.
