Students’ perception of value for money to be revealed

This week it is expected that The Office for Students will publish new research which reveals students’ perceptions of value for money. A glimpse of what the study found was previewed at the recent launch conference and the research shows:

  • 38% of students think that their “tuition fee for their course” represents good value for money, similarly 39% agree there is good value for money related to “other fees and costs”.
  • 24% of students do not feel that they were informed about how much everything would cost as a student. Main factors were costs of accommodation, books and extracurricular activities.
  • The top three factors that demonstrated value for money to students were quality of teaching, fair assessment and feedback and learning resources.
  • 80% of students support proposals to improve transparency. This would potentially allow them to compare expenditure on other courses or at other providers.
