Substantial cuts are expected to the funding Imperial receives from the government for its higher education activities.
In order to maintain the excellence of the education the College provides to students, Imperial has confirmed its intention to set fees at £9,000 for Home and EU undergraduate students for 2012 entry.
Financial aid will be available to students who have the ability to succeed on Imperial’s courses, but whose financial circumstances may act as a barrier. Our message is that for those who can manage Imperial’s courses, the College will work to ensure they can manage its costs.
Further details of the financial aid that will be available to students entering the College in 2012 will be released following the Office for Fair Access’s decision about Imperial’s proposals in the summer.
Current undergraduate students, who are still studying at Imperial in 2012, will not be affected by the changes to fee levels.
