January 17, 2018 00:00:00

Students of Dhaka's BRAC University have expressed frustration over the institution's decision to raise semester fees by Tk 7,000, reports bdnews24.com.

The hike will come into effect from 2020 when the private university will move to its permanent campus in Merul Badda, according to a notice published on the university's website on January 10.

The extra fee will go into the maintenance of the new campus and other facilities, the authorities said.

The decision shoots up annual fees for the students by Tk 21,000.

The university authorities have described it as "development fees", but students say it will put enormous pressure on them.

First semester student Tahsin Mahmud said he got to know about the fee hike at the freshers' reception.
