Universities ‘should charge our students home fees rather than international’

EDUCATION is seeking emergency meetings with the four universities that refused to treat island students the same as those in the UK.
Cambridge, Cardiff, Warwick and Imperial universities announced it would bring in higher overseas fees for Guernsey students in December.
But higher education and legal manager Eddie Martel said the department has been trying to arrange meetings with the institutions to talk about the issue.
‘What we would like to get out of those meetings is for the universities to charge our students home fees rather than international fees.’
Education minister Robert Sillars, pictured, said further comment would be made once meetings had taken place.
