THE cost of acquiring education at the University of the South Pacific will increase from next year.

This was decided at the university's 75th council meeting at the Laucala Campus early this week.

The USP council approved a 5 per cent increase in the tuition fees which will come into effect from January 1, 2013.

USP vice-chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra says the increase in fees is across the board for all member countries at all levels and is applicable for new and continuing students.

"The university last increased tuition fees by 3 per cent in 2009.

"Since then, the university has been bearing the costs of inflation, with the average accumulated rate of inflation in all member countries for that period standing at 18 per cent."
