The increase will see students paying $2 740 per semester, up from $2 150. The fees remain unchanged for students who pay their fees in US dollars. Part of the notice reads:
We write to you with regards the above mentioned matter. Following consultations with our
Board of Directors and The Student Representative Council Executive, we write to advise of the fees review for those paying in RTGS Bond.
