FOREIGN students studying at government-funded schools will have to pay a different fee, according to Education permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal.

He said foreign students would have to pay four times more the fee charged by schools.

"Any overseas student has to pay times four whatever the fee we charge here," he said.

Dr Lal said the fee structure for foreign students attending government schools has been in place since Fiji became independent in 1970.

"If you go to New Zealand and there fee is $10,000 per class, you will never be admitted for $10,000.

"They will say you are an overseas student and you will have to pay more.

"It is the same whether you go to university or anywhere."
