The proportion of students who feel their university course represents poor value for money has almost doubled in the last five years, with students from minority ethnic backgrounds among the least satisfied, according to a survey.

Rather than becoming inured to high tuition fees, students appear to be increasingly unhappy, with 34% now saying they think their course is either poor or very poor value for money, compared with 18% in 2012 when fees were trebled to £9,000 a year.

More than three-quarters (76%) of respondents to the survey said they opposed plans to let UK universities that meet high teaching standards raise annual fees further, to £9,250.
