Theresa May's government announced a fee rise in July 2016, and are now calling their decision not to do it, a 'freeze'.
As the Conservative Party conference kicked off in Manchester it was revealed Theresa May was going to unveil some policies designed to attract younger voters away from the 'Pied Piper of Highbury', Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Corbyn's Labour Party went into the general election promising to abolish all tuition fees, and then got embroiled in an argument over whether or not Corbyn had promised to get rid of existing student debt.
To counter this, Theresa May will reportedly use the Conservative Party conference to announce a series of policy decisions designed to woo young voters, including pledges about university tuition fees, the Help-to-Buy scheme for housing, a ban on letting fees, and incentives for landlords to offer longer tenancies.
On the matter of tuition fees, the Tories will announce a 'freeze' in fees at the current level of £9,250.
So, they are deciding not to go ahead with their own plan for an increase.
In July 2016, seven days after Theresa May was appointed Prime Minister, the government announced plans to increase tuition fees for students in England.
Increases, according to the government's paper, were to be linked to evidence of high quality teaching.
The 2.8 per cent rise set out in the statement meant that fees would be £9,500 in 2018-19 for full time students. Sunday's announced 'freeze' means this will no longer be going ahead.
May's other tuition fee policies included raising the amount a graduate has to earn in order to start paying back the fees, and launching a review into wiping out remaining debt and the amount of interest current graduates are paying.
Calling this a 'freeze' and not a U-Turn has not gone unnoticed online.
Just thinking of all the youngsters reading the Sunday Telegraph and celebrating the Tory idea of essentially keeping tuition fees the same.
