Students are to be given officially-approved key information about university courses with details of how much it will cost, teaching hours and how much they are likely to earn.

This online information is aimed at giving consumer-friendly advice for students facing higher tuition fees.

Every one of the 31,000 higher education courses in the UK will carry a link to these "key information sets".
