The government is concerned that parents and students are getting ripped off by some universities.

Notes from a meeting held at Number 10 caught on camera reveal that ministers in the Britain believe that there is a “problem” with university fees.

The document show the amount that that some universities are charging as the highest tuition fees rate is not worth it.

The leaked government document, published by the Telegraph, show that some of Britain’s most prestigious universities do not offer a high enough “quality and intensity of teaching.”

It is believed that these revelations, contained in a leaked document, will be an embarrassment for the government.

A section of memo reads – “Education across the spectrum – from some in the Russell group to courses … through FE [further education] colleges – do not offer the quality and intensity of teaching we expect for 9k.”

The coalition recently raised tuition fees to a maximum of £9,000 a year.

Many of the country’s leading and questionable universities have picked this maximum amount as its fees.

It looks the government is concerned that parents and students are getting ripped off by some universities.

There is now a call that the government reveal the names of the concerned institutions and universities.
