Higher Study Fees For Part-Time Students
Students studying part-time at university will have to dig deeper into their pockets now as tuition fees are set to rise in September.
The increase in study fees is based on a ruling of the Constitutional Court from last year, with some universities planning to hike current symbolic amounts up to as much as EUR 1,000 a year, reports Pravda daily.
The ruling of the Constitutional Court essentially banned discrimination between students, meaning they should all be subject to the same fees or have no fees at all. Some experts believe that the new fees will lead to a drop in the number of part-time students studying at university.
