Tajikistan Lowers University Tuition for Afghans

Saturday 23 February 2013

DUSHANBE (Asia-Plus) – Tajik Education Minister Nuriddin Saidov decided February 22 to reduce university tuition fees for Afghan citizens studying in Tajikistan. Saidov made the decision after a request from visiting Afghan Higher Education Minister Obaidullah Obaid.

Formerly, Afghan students paid higher fees than Tajiks, but now they will pay the same rate.

The Tajik Education Ministry also agreed to set aside 50 university slots for Afghan students annually. Presently more than 260 Afghan students are studying in Tajik universities.
