The Future of Fees panel discussion is your opportunity to ask University management anything you want about fee increases and hear from industry professionals about what they think the future is for tuition fees. It will cover three key topics, giving up to date information about changes to fees across the UK and at Lancaster, to discuss what panellists believe are the effects of rising fees in Higher Education and a discussion about the future of fees.
There will be opportunities for you to ask questions and lead the direction of the discussion. The discussion is especially important for first year students as the change in fees will affect you the most.
