PRESS RELEASE REVISION OF TUITION FEES FOR DIPLOMA AND DEGREE COURSES AT DOMASI COLEGE OF EDUCATION

The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology would like to inform the general public that with effect from 2015/16 Academic Year, tuition fees for diploma and degree courses offered at Domasi College of Education (DCE) have been revised from K1, 500.00 per student per annum to K180, 000 and K220, 000 per student per annum, respectively.The revision has been necessitated by the need to students to contribute to the cost of their training which has been heavily subsidised over the years. However, the Ministry wishes to inform the general public that even the revised fees are still heavily subsidised because the fees are far still less than the real cost of providing teacher training at DCE which averages at K700, 000 per student per year. In light of this basic fundamental truth, the Ministry will undertake to review the fees annually to relate to the cost of providing teacher training courses at diploma and degree levels.Furthermore, the Ministry wishes to inform thegeneral public that with effect from 2015/16 Academic Year, there will no longer beGovernment Sponsored students selected to DCE. All selected students will therefore be on self- sponsored basis.Needy students will be eligible to apply for loans and grants under the Higher Education Students’ Loans and Grants Fund which are being administered by the Higher Education students’ Loans and Grants Board.L.V. Magreta (Mrs)SECRETARY FOR EDUCATION, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
