The University of Portsmouth has today announced its proposal to charge fees of £8500 per year for students from September 2012.

Vice-chancellor John Craven said: ‘Our fee decision will enable us to continue to provide a first class teaching and learning environment for students, despite the significant cuts in public funding to universities.’

The new fees and bursary package, endorsed by the Board of Governors, is subject to agreement by the Office for Fair Access.

Prof Craven said: ‘These have been uncertain times for the higher education sector but the university is financially sound and is prepared for the government’s cuts to its teaching and research funding.

‘We will continue to provide an excellent education for our students.’
