PLANNING AND RESOURCE ALLOCATION COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decree

The Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 7 June.

Decree (1): University composition fees for Home/EU students and certain others for 2002--3, and for overseas students for 2003--4

Explanatory note

The Department for Education and Skills has announced that the tuition fee introduced for award-holding Home/EU undergraduates should be increased from £1,075 to £1,100 for the year 2002--3, and that the maximum tuition fee to be paid through publicly funded postgraduate awards will be increased from £2,805 to £2,870. Clauses 2--4 and 8--9 of the following decree, which has been made by the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council, effects these changes and related changes for the coming year. The University awaits an announcement on the levels which will apply in 2002-- 3 in respect of students from the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Colleges will be informed of the position separately once an announcement has been received.

On fees for overseas students, Council has already made a decree setting the levels of fees for overseas students in 2002--3 (Decree (7) of 24 May 2001, Gazette, Vol. 131, p. 1045). For a number of years the levels of fees to be charged to overseas students have been set well in advance. Council has agreed that the levels of fees for overseas students should be increased by 4.5 per cent in 2003--4, the same rate used to set overseas fees for 2001--2 and 2002--3. Clauses 11--13 of the following decree set out the level of overseas fees for 2003--4 accordingly.

Opportunity is taken in clause 5 of this decree to set the fee for Recognised and Visiting Students, which is half the Category A rate (i.e. £3,741 in 2002--3). Clause 6 sets the fee for members of the University working on the Foreign Service Course as the Category B rate (i.e. £9,975 in 2002--3). Clause 7 makes provision for the level of the fee to be charged for the Diploma Course in European Studies (intended primarily for Japanese managers) at the Category C rate (i.e. £18,285 in 2002--3). Clause 10 sets the fee for the MBA (i.e. £19,600 in 2002--3).

Clause 1 of this decree corrects an obsolete cross-reference.
