KUALA LUMPUR: All public universities have been reminded to comply with the directive to reduce tuition fees by 20% for the first semester of the 2021/2022 session.

Higher education minister Noraini Ahmad stressed that this directive had already been issued to public universities.

“The move is in line with the ministry’s continued efforts in looking after the welfare of students, especially under the #KPTPrihatin initiative,” she said in a statement here today.

Noraini said there should be no increase in tuition fees at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic has adversely impacted the lives of the people.

Yesterday, the Universiti Malaya Students Union (KMUM) urged the university’s administration to explain its decision to increase tuition fees for certain courses for the 2021/22 session.

This was following a reported 10-60% hike in tuition fees, which the students union felt was too steep and unreasonable, especially in the current situation.
