As the highest authorities of the institution explain the situation, the increase was dictated by a strict need and there’s nothing that can be done to avoid it.

It was sad news for many students because the fees have stopped being that affordable. Yet, the management explained further that they were aware of such an outcome. In order to help those students who can’t afford paying the whole amount in a lump or can’t afford paying in a supposed scheme, they offered a possibility of a student loan. This loan is supposed to be paid back in installment.
