Increased fees to greet new and continuing UG students

From the new academic year, University of Guyana students will have to pay increased tuition fees. The new academic year begins late August.

In a statement the University said new students will now have to pay GUY$210,000 per academic year and continuing students will pay GUY$180,000 over the same period. Students previously paid $127,000 per year .

According to the University, The fee adjustment has become necessary due to the rising cost of providing quality education not only in Guyana but worldwide. It said Additionally, inflation has negatively affected the allocation to the University from the Government, making the current tuition fees paid by students unsustainable and unrealistic,”

This is the first time that the University fees have been increased since the PPP Civic government introduced the fee structure in 1994.
