NEWS BRIEFS

Universities law approved

Parliament on February 21 passed a new University Law that will raise teachers' salaries, introduce competition for teaching posts and centralise university power under university presidents. Following a two-day discussion on the bill parliament decided by one vote not to introduce fees for any form of university study, including part times studies where fees are normally charged.

In response, Banská Bystrica's Matej Bel University elected to cancel part-time studies at seven of its eight faculties, saying it would no longer be able to afford the programmes.
