Polytechnic to be re-opened on January 30


Finally students from Polytechnic, a constituent college of the University of Malawi (UNIMA) can breathe a sigh of relief following the announcement that the institution will be reopened on January 30, 2017 for the 2016/17 academic year.

The development comes barely a week after the newly appointed Board of the University of Malawi meet and assured President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika that the college will reopen its doors soon.

The school delayed opening its doors following a standoff between the students and the University Council over the hiked fees.

The students argued that they will not pay the new revised fees due to the fact they are one year behind the academic calendar.

Although this has been the case, the document seen by FOM’s reporter indicates that college has maintained the newly hiked fees despite a court ruling quashing the news.

According to the statement, first year generic students will be required to pay MK400,000 and continuing generic students will be required to pay MK350,000 while mature entry students will be required to pay MK900, 000.

Meanwhile Poly Student Union (PSU) President is yet to comment on the development.
