External tuition fee plans readied

Only four Slovak universities will not introduce tuition fees for external students in any of their study programmes, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote on October 31. These are the University of Economics in Bratislava, the Catholic University in Ružomberok, the Technical University in Zvolen and Košice-based University of Veterinary Medicine.

Most universities will announce the sum of tuition fees at the end of December. Those that are already known range between Sk12,000 and Sk33,000 annually.
