The cost of attaining education at the University of the South Pacific will become higher from next year following the announcement of a 5% increase in tuition fees.
The decision was reached during the 75th USP Council Meeting this week.
Vice Chancellor and President of the University, Rajesh Chandra said they had not increased the tuition fees since 2008, and to compensate for inflation and other increased costs the Council opted for this choice.
Meanwhile, the Council has approved an annual plan for 2013 which has a proposed total income of $170.37million and a proposed total expenditure of $170.22million.
