Government: No rise in university fees planned yet


Representatives of the Education Ministry do not rule out that Belarus will soon increase university fees. "This is due to the growing price for energy resources and other things. However, the situation is fairly stable. The government has it under control," Belarus first deputy education minister Aliaksandr Zhuk told reporters on August 13 in Minsk. However, raising university fees is not under study yet, the deputy minister added, despite the fact that education fees are presently less what university spend to train young professionals.
