6. Staffordshire University: £6,433
One of the few universities in the UK to offer fast track undergraduate degrees - which means they take two years instead of three - Staffordshire University also specialises in secondary teacher training courses. It is also the only university in the UK to offer a BA (Hons) in Cartoon and Comic Arts.

 
7.  No frills university
A "no-frills" university college offering teaching seven days a week and degrees for around half the price of traditional universities will start recruiting students next week.
Coventry University College will focus on professional courses including accounting, law and marketing, at a maximum cost of £4,800 for a full-time degree student. It is an offshoot of Coventry University, but students at the new institution will not have access to the university's library, IT or sporting facilities.
The college is aimed at students concerned about taking on debts to fund their higher education, as well as helping employees combine work with gaining new skills. Universities in England will also compete against each other for a quarter of the students they recruit - at present each institution has a fixed number of government-funded places for home undergraduates.
The government is introducing competition based on strength of student demand and pricing of courses which will put pressure on mid-ranking institutions to bring down fees. Courses will be offered from next week through the university admissions system UCAS. The university's first intake will be of 1100 students, rising to 3500 over the next four years.
The "no frills" offer allows for lower costs than Coventry University, which is charging an average fee of £7,947 from next year.
