The University of Glamorgan will charge students £9,000 per year for honours degrees and £7,500 per year for Foundation Degrees and other courses.
The Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) approved the fee structure from September 2012 accepted.
The university’s initial proposals were rejected last month.
In a statement, Glamorgan University’s Vice-Chancellor Julie Lydon said: “We considered carefully and consulted widely on our proposed package of graduate contribution and support.
“HEFCW has supported our view by approving the Fee Plan we submitted. This decision will ensure the stable future of two institutions of regional significance and strategic importance for higher education in Wales.
“The plan demonstrates our determination that Glamorgan, Wales’s second largest university and a member of the St David’s Day Group, together with its subsidiary, the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, the National Conservatoire for Wales, should build on our track record in widening access and breaking down barriers to excellence in higher education in a broad range of subjects.
“Under our proposals, students will have access to an enhanced range of academic and financial support to enable them to achieve their full potential.
“In a competitive market, the Glamorgan Fee Plan reflects the package needed to continue our mission of providing opportunity for all those with the ability to benefit from higher education as well as equipping our students with the skills to maximise their employability through innovative new programmes.
“Without today’s decision our students would have suffered from a diminution of teaching resources, and academic and pastoral support.”
HEFCW’s approval of the fee plans by Wales’ universities mean that eight of ten institutions will charge the maximum £9,000.
It is thought most Welsh students will pay roughly £3,400 a year with difference paid for by the Welsh Government.
