A survey published by The Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) found that two-thirds of students in England feel that their degree does not represent good value for money, with general satisfaction levels predominantly low among students from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds.

Since the introduction of £9,000 tuition fees, the satisfaction levels among undergraduates in relation to value for money have decreased severely.

Only 33% of students in England who took part in the 2016 survey felt they were receiving “good” or “very good” value for money, compared with more than half of students (52%) that were surveyed in 2012.

35% believed they were getting “poor” or “very poor” value for money, whilst 32% thought it was neither good nor poor.

Students of Asian, Chinese, African and African-Caribbean ethnicities were the least satisfied with their academic experience.
