Colchester student Ella Passingham seized the chance to find out more about the changes to university tuition fees when she interviewed the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University of Essex.

Ella, 17, a pupil at Colchester County High School for Girls, hopes to study history at University in 2012 after completing her A levels, and will be in the first group of students facing tuition fees of up to £9,000.

The University made the recording as part of its work to explain the new student finance system to sixth form students. The University has also distributed a special postcard with details of the 2012 fees and new student support packages to schools and colleges in Essex, Suffolk and east London.

Essex, along with most research intensive universities, has announced a proposed tuition fee of £9,000 for all undergraduate courses from 2012, although this is subject to the approval of the Office for Fair Access (OFFA). Essex is ranked in the top ten universities in the UK for the quality of its research.

All universities proposing fees of more than £6,000 are required to produce an Access Agreement demonstrating how they will ensure fair access for all students regardless of household income. Proposed fees and Access Agreements are subject to the approval of the Office for Fair Access (OFFA), with confirmation expected in July.
