Paris University Students Protest Rising Enrollment Costs of International Students

PARIS – Students at Tolbiac University in the French capital held a protest on Wednesday over rising enrollment fees for international students that would apply to those from countries outside the European Union.

Students affixed banners and placards to the railings outside a university building in Paris, including one that read “Solidarity with foreigners,” as part of their demonstration that took place at a time when France was gripped by the so-called “gilets jaunes” protest movement against fuel tax hikes.

Another banner said: “Against enrollment fees and expensive life! Tolbiac against Macron,” in reference to French President Emmanuel Macron.

Some of the students joined the protest to express solidarity with the yellow vest movement.

A government bill presented last month foresees a hike in subscription fees for students from outside of the EU, according to France Info.

Under the new legislation starting in 2019, a bachelor’s degree would cost 2,770 euros instead of 170, while a master’s would go up to 3,770 euros from 243, according to French daily Le Parisien.
