The government says the rise in the cost of education is “unavoidable”.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said that since 2012 the average price of tertiary education has risen by 5.1% and the cost for non-school qualifications rose by 1.3%.
The ONS said that between 2011 and 2020, average costs of private and community higher education have increased by 6.4% and 4.4%.
On average, tuition fees have increased 15.6% over that time.
On average non-college tuition fees increased by 17.1%.
But students will have to be prepared to pay a higher price.
In the past few years, fees for the top 1% of earners have increased while for everyone else, they have stayed flat.
Income inequalityIncome distribution is becoming more unequal with the richest one percent of earners taking home a larger proportion of total income.
The government has launched a scheme to increase the minimum wage to £10.10 an hour and give every person in the UK £100 a year.
The scheme will be funded through the Treasury.
The money will be available to the poorest families to help them get on the income ladder.
In order to pay for the higher minimum wage, the Government has announced an additional £7.5bn will be put towards the cost to the NHS, the National Health Service, and other organisations, as part of its health and social care strategy.
However, this has raised concerns that this will not be enough to pay the cost, particularly as many schools are still not in the bottom 5% of schools.
The Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, said she would be “unprepared to spend more money than we need to, and the money we don’t have is not going to be enough”.
The Office of National Statistics said the average cost of tertyrinary education has increased by 5% and non-teaching qualification increased by 1%.
The increase in the average value of education, for example, is due to inflation, which has risen 10.7%.
The rise in average fees, which will be announced in April 2019, will have a disproportionate impact on lower-income families, who are most likely to need help paying for higher education.
Students in the lowest income brackets are also facing the greatest pressure.
Incomes are expected to be lower than ever before as households are expected be more reliant on welfare.
However the ONS data shows that the highest-earning households are also among the least likely to be able to afford higher education, with the median household income of the richest 20% of households falling by 2.3% over the past year.
In a further sign that the government is failing to provide the resources that are needed to pay tuition fees, the ONSPE says there are no additional resources available to fund non-graduate training for people in the most deprived parts of society.
