MPs establish tuition for part-time university studies

Slovak MPs on July 3 approved an amendment to the Universities Act that requires part-time university students to pay for their studies.

The tuition comes into effect as of September 1.

Both a proposal by MP László Szigetti (SMK) to revisit the amendment and one by KDH MP Martin Fronc [both Szigetti and Fronc are former education ministers – ed. note] to withdraw the Act were voted down.

However, universities will be able to enroll a prescribed number of tuition-free part-time students who are engaged in work deemed to be in the public interest.
