National Uni. Fees Going Up

The standard for tuition fees at national universities is to be increased from next April. The education and finance ministries announced that the standard for annual tuition will go up by ¥15,000 to &535,800. The increase will be introduced just a year after changes to the law that turned all national universities into private entities and allowed them to set their own fees. The standard fee level is based on a national average, and universities are allowed to set their fees below or up to 10% above that level. The increase reflects the need for universities to maintain income levels, but some schools plan to avoid increasing fees for fear of losing students.
