Higher education institutions are autonomous bodies and therefore the day to day operations including the determination of the fee rate applicable for individual students is a matter for the Governing Authority of each institution.

Accordingly, my Department has no function in relation to such matters. The final decision on this issue is a matter for the individual higher education institution.
