Holness Suggests Review Of Tertiary Education Funding Model

Prime Minister Andrew Holness is suggesting that the tertiary education funding model be reviewed so that the Government can increase access to financing for students to pay their own fees instead of providing a tuition subsidy.

Holness made the suggestion at his induction into the UWI Honour Park for past students of the institution who are current or former heads of state.

He noted that the model he is suggesting could lead to tertiary students bearing a greater share of the cost of their education.
