WATCH: UZ Students Protest Demanding “Fees Must Fall”


Hundreds of students demonstrated at the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) on Monday over the recently announced hike in tuition fees of up to $500 000, described by many students as unaffordable and beyond the reach of their parents and guardians.


According to the new fee structure, undergraduate students are required to pay anything between $300 000 to $500 000 depending on their faculty.

Students pursuing a Master’s degree will have to fork out up to $700 000 (US$900 per official exchange rate) also depending on their faculty and students are expected to pay the fees by September 30. A student at the higher learning institution shared with ZNN News the video below:
