BNTU demands triple compensation from alumni
12:34, — society
The university demands an alumnus, whose studies were budget-funded, to compensate the costs, including the devaluation losses.
A reader reported the case to the charter97.org web-site.
“My son studied at BNTU from 2007 through 2012 on a budget-funded program. He did not live in a dormitory, since no places were available. After the graduation he was placed to the Kamvol enterprise, which Lukashenka visited in winter. The working conditions are unbearable there and the salary is 1.5 million. The enterprise did not provide the son with either an accommodation or even a registration in Minsk. He lived in a rented studio together with his wife, which cost him $300 a month. That is why the son had to moonlight at nights. Apart from that he has been asthmatic since the childhood, and once he fell sick and did not come to work. Since he did not have a registration in Minsk, he could not go to a local clinic”, - the reader highlighted.
He noted that the son was fired for that, and that is how it ended.
“In, half a year later, a lawsuit came from BNTU requiring to compensate the costs of the education. The university demands to compensate 90 million. What is interesting is that the highest tuition was 14 million in 2012, and much lower in the previous years. The total tuition fee amounts to 35 million at best. We had a calculation form sent”, - the reader concluded.
We would note back at the time of the devaluation of 2011 the Council of Ministers issued a decree, which stated that alumni could not simply pay back the costs the budget spent on their education. For such students a special price-list was invented with the so-called “correcting coefficients”. They are calculated by dividing the average monthly tuition fee in the last year of studies by the average monthly tuition fee in the whole studies period.
