Government cuts participation fee for studying at state universities

The Government decided to substantially cut the participation for studying at state universities, setting the highest co-financing fee at EUR 400 from 1,200, Education Minister Nikola Todorov said Sunday at a press conference.

The decision meets the demand of the Parliament of Students of Skopje-based SS. Cyril & Methodius University.

The state enrollment fee is set at the amount of EUR 200 for all faculties, while the quota for dispersed studies at EUR 100.

The decision is in line with the Government's commitment to larger inclusion of the citizens of Macedonia in the higher education process, which should contribute to the overall development of the country, Todorov said.

In the 2010-11 academic year the five state university may admit over 26,000 freshmen.
