Students are protesting against the possible introduction of tuition fees at public universities. The idea was floated at a meeting of the three parties expected to form a centre-right government. If the idea wins approval students would have to pay tuition fees to the tune of 10,000 crowns per semester. The idea has sparked a wave of protests and socially challenged students are now signing a petition against the introduction of tuition fees. A survey of 11 thousand students commissioned by the Education Ministry late last year indicated that two thirds of those polled are against the idea.
