…K950,000 for Poly
…K1.4 million for CoM
Tough times for all those who want to acquire knowledge with the University of Malawi following the fee hike that the University is set to implement.
According to an internal memo that Malawi24 has seen and has been signed by the University registrar Benedicto Malunga, the University has agreed to adjust the fees for its mature students.
“I write to advise that Council of the University of Malawi resolved to adjust the fees paid by its mature students upwards,” communicates the memo.
The memo says that it was agreed that the mature students should not be paying an amount similar to that paid for by generic students.
The University has said that all the students that will be admitted in the 2016/17 academic year will be subject to the new fee regime.
The fees see Chancellor College as the cheapest with its mature students paying K900,000. The Polytechnic comes next with a fee of K950,000.
Mature students studying at Kamuzu College of Nursing will be required to pay K1,000,000 while those at the College of Medicine will be asked to pay K1,400,000.
