Fines for compulsory assignment rejection double


for graduates' refusal to take up their compulsory assignment on the completion
of universities doubled in the last two years to about 40 million rubels. It
would be cheaper for students to pay a tuition fee during studies.

instance, the Applied Mathematics and Information Technology Faculty of
Belarusian State University charges graduates 34 million rubels, saying that the
amount is equivalent to the cost of their five-year education. The same faculty
estimated education costs at 17 million rubels two years before.
