Section 1: Portfolio Evidence IISummarising (recommended word count: 100)2.a.i.1.Find a text on university fees in the country of your choice (around 200 words)and paste it below, in part 1. Then, read the two texts and highlight the main points.PART 1:Text 1:University fees in England“University tuition fees in England will rise to £9,250 per year from 2017 and the increase couldapply to students who have already started courses. The inflation-linked rise represents a 2.8%increase and if that continued would mean fees rising above £10,000 in the next few years.Universities face the dilemma that under consumer protection requirements they will need toannounce the £9,250 fee before the beginning of the next application cycle in early September.However, until formally changed by Parliament, universities are not allowed to charge a fee higherthan £9,000, which is the current limit.The government says the increase can apply to students who have already begun courses - but this willdepend on the terms of student contracts in individual universities. The fees will increase in subsequentyears. Royal Holloway and the University of Kent have to still to decide on whether to charge higher feesfor current students, but expect to apply them to new students starting in 2017, if the fee limit increase goesahead. The University of Surrey will not increase fees for its current undergraduates, but fees will increaseeach year for students starting in 2017.Universities minister Jo Johnson has published a statement setting out plans to link higher fees to betterteaching. Liberal Democrat university spokeswoman Baroness Lorely Burt said: "Linking fees to teachingquality in this way is unacceptable. Enabling any university that scrapes a 'meet expectations' rating toincrease fees by 2.8% shows that this isn't about teaching quality at all. If universities need further supportthen let's have a proper discussion about where that money comes from, rather than pretending that this issomehow a quid pro quo for providing the quality of teaching students should already be able to expect".Sir Peter Lampl, chairman of the Sutton Trust education charity, said the fee increase will add to studentdebts that we have shown to be by far the highest in the English-speaking world. A real concern is that theremoval of maintenance grants will almost certainly deter poorer students, who now face debts of over£50,000 on graduation”.From: Coughlan, S. (2017).
