Sorry for the late reply, but i don't know anything further on fees and so on for the IET to accredit courses. All I know that the university will be getting someone in from the IET in September.
Also in regards to applying for your own accreditation, i have been personally told by a experienced member that works for the IET that it is not impossible to get accredited. I will be applying for EngTech at the end of the year and i do not have a accredited degree. I will be using my experience and my knowledge. Hopefully that will get me through...
Fail to prepare...Prepare to fail!
