Spending review and tuition fees
Students of the University of Eastern Piedmont “Amedeo Avogadro”, which are off course or keeping up with the schedule, can sleep soundly, at least for the academic year 2012/2013 : tuition fees will not be any increase, contrary to the was recently decided by the decree on the spending review.
“Despite the heavy sacrifices that we have to do in any case says Cesare Emanuel, pro-rector of the university – it did not seem right further burdening families with the increase of tuition fees. “On the other hand the Avogadro for some time the decision was made to cater to their students: “It has always existed, in fact, the limit of 20 per cent continues to define the pro-rector in the relationship between student contributions and fund ongoing financing (FFO)”, but in the case of the university Piedmont has managed to stay even below this threshold, reaching to 18.49 percent, and” found elsewhere in the necessary resources for the functioning of the university.
Rather satisfied with the decision taken by the leaders of the University of Eastern Piedmont is the commissioner for Vocational Training of the Piedmont Region, Claudia Porchietto : “I hope, he said that other universities will follow the example Piedmont, indeed I would like to launch an appeal in this sense for the protection of all our families. “The commissioner does not shy away from expressing a negative opinion against what has been established by the Decree on the spending review: “Personally explains the Porchietto. I think the ability to increase tuition fees Monti launched by the government constitutes a strategic error , already today the rates for off course and are not excessively high. “
The decree on the spending review states, in fact, the increase in tuition fees for students off course, according to the maximum and the criteria that will establish the Ministry of Education. In addition, possible increases are also planned for the members who are in good standing with the times, but in excess of 40 thousand euro ISEE family. For those who do not reach these amounts, however, will be able to “touch up” fees only in proportion to inflation.
