Prodromou discusses students fees with UK minister

 

 

Education Minister Prodromos Prodromou discussed the recent decision of the British government on the fees and status of university students coming from EU countries, in a teleconference with British Minister of State for Universities at the Department of Education Michelle Donelan.

According to a press release by the Ministry, Prodromou, briefed the British Minister about the situation as regards young Cypriots interested in studying in the United Kingdom, following the recent decision of the British Government on the status and tuition fees of students coming from EU Member States.

The Cypriot Minister suggested that, given the big number of Cypriot students who choose to study in the UK, the two countries should reach a bilateral agreement which will allow the same conditions that are in place today to continue for Cypriot students.

They also discussed ways to deal with the problem facing male students, who, due to their obligation to serve in the National Guard, will not be able to enroll in universities in the next academic year with the current tuition fees as their classmates. Prodromou pointed out that around 522 candidates are in the process or have already offers for acceptance and registration in universities.

According to the press release, the Minister of State assured that she will convey the proposal of the Cypriot government and that she will discuss the issue of this year’s candidates with the collective body of universities, since ultimately the treatment of foreign students depends on the universities.
