UK: LSE 'may reject maximum tuition fees'

The London School of Economics could become the first elite university in England to set tuition fees below the maximum level. In a boost to the coalition government, it emerged that the institution is considering charging £8,000 (US$13,000) a year for a degree - £1,000 lower than all other top universities, writes Graeme Paton for The Telegraph.

The move has been welcomed by student leaders who have been hugely critical of universities that have 'bunched' fees towards the maximum allowed under the government's reforms. It comes despite fears from some institutions that setting lower fees could make them appear 'second rate'.

If approved, it would mean degrees at the LSE, ranked among the top universities in Britain, would cost less than those at Bournemouth, Chichester, Edge Hill, Hertfordshire, Northumbria, Teesside and Worcester.
