Shadow Education Secretary criticises 2 year degrees.

Shadow Education Secretary criticises 2 year degrees.

Angela Rayner has poured scorn on Government plans to introduce £11,100-a-year tuition fees for more “accelerated” two-year degrees. 

The Shadow Education Secretary said there was “no concrete evidence” the new shorter courses benefited students and dismissed the shake-up as “another plan to raise tuition fees”. 

Ministers have announced students on the two-year intensive degrees will have to pay fees up to £11,100-a-year but insisted the changes will save students money overall. 

The maximum per-year fee for a typical three-year course is around £9,250 for 2017/18. A student on a fast-track course would pay £22,200 in tuition fees, compared with £27,750 for a standard three-year degree.
