Nairobi - A new plan under government to reduce subsidies, engineering and medical students in public universities will start paying higher charges than those studying arts from October.
According to Business Daily, the Education Cabinet secretary Jacob Kaimenyi said on Tuesday lecturers would also be paid according to the subjects they taught.
Speaking during a meeting with vice chancellors of local private universities, Kaimenyi went on to add that the change is in line with the recently-enacted Universities Act that will see the establishment of a Universities Fund to determine the amounts to be paid in each degree programme.
