A forum on how to react to a probable change in registration fees was held on January 6th at the Humanities Department building. The new Student Union has focused on securing the best possible result regarding registration fees for UOS students.
The 5.1% increase in pay for civil servants this year may lead to our tuition fees being raised. A signature-seeking campaign to ‘freeze’ our registration fees was held throughout the winter vacation by the Student Union; on campus and through online channels.
It surveyed 1,100 UOS students; with the results being 53% in favor of freezing tuition for all students, 13% for freezing tuition only for presently enrolled students with an increase for new students, and 11% seeking a decrease in tuition. The UOS Tuition Deliberation Committee plays an important role in forming the grounds of negotiation with third parties regarding these changing circumstances.
For instance, the current transition of Seoul National University towards a corporate body is evoking voices of protest saying that we should not let this happen to our campus as well.
