This is after the student’s guild formed a committee to study the issue of tuition increment after council proposing a 91% tuition increment on given Science courses and a 45% increment on Arts courses respectively.
While handing over the report to the chair University council, the chairperson student’s committee Polly Bandola said that instead of increasing tuition by that percentage, it should only be increased by 15% for all courses.
According to the earlier proposed increments, Bachelor of Journalism and Communication was among those whose fees were hiked from Shs 980, 000 to Shs 1.2 million.
Bandola added that the increment should affect only the new students and not the continuing ones.
For his part, the university Vice Chancellor Professor Barnabas Nawangwe commended the students for their input into the tuition increment proposal promising that council will look into the matter.
