UPNG to increase Tuition fees in 2017

The University of Papua New Guinea is planning on increasing the 2017 Tuition fee for students or the Council will be forced to close the 2016 revised programme if the government does not release the K12 million allocated to the university, which was to cater for the 8 weeks of classes that students missed out on as a result of the boycott.

Semester 2 of 2016 will resume on the 16th of January 2017 and the University is struggling to meet the bills which have accumulated over time since the protest and boycott.
Acting Chancellor Dr Nicholas Mann says the University Council is left with these two options if the funds are not paid out in time.

“We have been writing to the Department of Finance and Treasury every week to release those funds but we have not received any favourable respond”
“I’m sorry to say that the government has failed all of us and parents will have to dig into their pockets to meet the bills of the 2016 revised programme or we stop the remaining programme “said Dr Mann. PNGFM/PNG Today
