Tamil Nadu private schools released new fee structure

Chennai, June 13  A committee headed by retired Justice K. Raviraja Pandian Monday released the new fee structure for around 6,400 private schools in Tamil Nadu.

The new fee structure would be sent to the various schools by each district's chief educational officer.

Speaking to reporters here, the committee's Special Officer Thirugnana Sambandham said the new fee structure would be applicable for three academic years starting this academic year.

The revised fee is said to be 15 percent higher than the earlier slab.

According to the committee, the fee structure was arrived at taking into account infrastructure facilities and maintenance expenditure of the schools.

On complaints of high fees charged by private schools, the previous DMK government had appointed a committee under retired Justice K. Govindarajan.

The Govindarajan committee submitted its report on the fee structure for over 10,000 schools.

However, around 6,400 schools objected to the fee structure fixed by the Govindarajan committee and filed a case in the Madras High Court.

Govindarajan resigned from the committee citing personal reasons and the government appointed Pandian as its head.

About South East European University

University profile

SEEU operates its academic activities from two teaching establishments, the main campus in Tetovo and its newly established campus in the capital city, Skopje.

The main campus of SEEU is built upon the principle – all in one, which enables interactive comprehensiveness between students in all study disciplines. The campus is a model university facility in that it stretches across a large green area and contains purpose-built accommodations. These include: four large lecture halls with the capacity to fit 200 to 500 students, approximately 30 classrooms with a capacity for 30 to 60 students, staff offices, two state-of-the-art computer centers with more than 650 computers, a library and residen­tial accommodations. In addition, there are sev­eral recreational facilities where students can add social activities to their academic experience at SEEU. Recently, the main campus was expanded and added a new Business Education Building and 8 new computer laboratories with 150 computers from the type “Sun thin client” and 50 computers in support of teaching, learning and re­search.

The equipment for teaching is modern, practical and enables optimal services for application and interactive learning.

The SEEU campus in Skopje is not nearly as large as the main campus in Tetovo, but it provides the same essential features that make SEEU such a uniquely modern European university and an excellent and enjoyable place to earn a degree. The campus is located in the heart of the capital city opposite the Italian Embassy.

The SEEU Campus is unique in the region in that certain concepts in the sphere of protection for the environment and ecological system are being taken into consideration. A large part of the Campus (25.000m2) is a green area. About 60 % of the materials that were used during the construction of buildings were with eco-characteristics.

The University uses high quality filtered drinking water from its own resources. At SEEU, we are all dedicated to recycling waste materials. Due to that, we are separating waste and then transporting it to respective factories for processing.
SEEU is constantly investing in the technology for electric power savings.
SEEU also believes in investing in renewable resources. As environmental pollution decreases, this will have positive influence on the development of the economy in the country.

Quality Assurance and Management

At the center of SEEU’s mission are the aims of excellence, equity, transparency and efficiency. The University strives for the highest quality in every faculty and department and sees quality improvement as both an individual and collective responsibility.

Since quality is at the heart of every process that the University undertakes, we are developing a Quality culture by working on both quality assurance and quality management.

Quality assurance focuses on academic matters and teaching and learning and links closely with those services which directly support students, such as the Library, Student Services and Career Center.

Quality management targets the effective development and monitoring of policies and procedures.

To achieve these aims, the University focuses on Quality issues in its Strategic Plan and has a Quality Policy which underpins a functioning quality structure, with clearly defined roles and evaluative activities. The evaluation of achievements and the implementation of key priorities for improvement and measurement are carried out through Faculty and Departmental Action Plans, validated and monitored by senior managers.

All study programs provided by SEEU are accredited by the Accreditation and Evaluation Board of the Republic of Macedonia and the quality of our curricula and assessment are regularly reviewed according to our institutional quality assurance procedures and through a cycle of external programme review using international specialists.

Research and publications are increasing in number and scope.These important academic research activities are supported and monitored by the Research Office and Pro-Rector for Research.

The University seeks to support effective staff performance. For academic staff, this is done through procedures such as an annual Learning and Teaching Observation Scheme and the active consideration of students’ opinions from the Student Evaluation Survey. All staff is required to take part in the individual Staff Evaluation Process and all these processes are linked to an integrated Staff Development Procedure , offering internal and external opportunities for professional development and training.

The University welcomes and positively uses both national and international evaluation and quality accreditation for continuous improvement.We receive valuable evaluation and advice on a twice yearly basis from our external Quality Champion. We also actively refertothe latest developments and trends in higher education in Europe which are part of the Bologna Process. Also the University has been positively evaluated twice as part of EuropeanUniversities Association (EUA) external institutional review program ; and its administrative and management processes have been successfully validated according to International Standards for Organization (ISO 9001/2008).

East West University: Financial Aid

At the beginning of each semester, the university considers applications on prescribed forms for the granting of financial aid to deserving students on a need-cum-merit basis. Undergraduate applicants who have completed at least one-fourth of the total credit requirement of the program during the immediate past year with a minimum prescribed CGPA of 2.70 and with demonstrated financial need are offered financial assistance to cover part of the tuition fees. The actual amount depends on the number of applicants and the availability of funds. This is by far the largest component of the funding support both in terms of the amount of money as well as the number of recipients.  Financial assistance is also extendable on fulfillment of the above requirements.

Family Concession
When two siblings (brother/sister with the same parents) study simultaneously at East West University, the second sibling is entitled to a half-tuition waiver. However, both must be admitted full-time into regular programs. The benefit commences on the date of admission of the second sibling and ceases on the discontinuation of the study of any one of them, after his/her graduation or for any other reason. This benefit may extend up to the third sibling under the above-mentioned conditions. If either of the siblings maintains a minimum CGPA of 2.70, while the other maintains a minimum passing CGPA (2.00 for Undergraduate Programs, 2.50 for Graduate Programs, 2.30 for MA in English) the sibling benefit will be awarded and continued for the one who maintains the CGPA of 2.70.
In case of the newly admitted students, if the first sibling could maintain the minimum CGPA of 2.70 the sibling benefit would be awarded to the second sibling provided the first sibling is not currently receiving any merit scholarship/financial aid from the EWU.

The Medha Lalon Fund
In order to be able to extend further support towards nurturing merit, particularly to students of middle-class background, to female students, and to students from outside the metropolis, the Board of Directors of East West University set up in 2002 a scheme called the East West University Medha Lalon Fund with an initial endowment of Taka one and a half crore. The Board has also sanctioned an amount of Taka one crore thirty lakhs from the operating surplus of the university for the Fund. This is in addition to the disbursement each year on regular components such as the merit scholarships and financial aid. Several philanthropic persons/organizations have contributed a combined amount of Taka twenty-seven and a half lakh to the Medha Lalon Fund. From the annual earnings of the East West University Medha Lalon Fund deposited in a lucrative five-year interest earning Scholarship Deposit Account of Mercantile Bank, this need-cum-merit based financial aid is awarded.    

East West University: Scholarship

Since its inception, East West University has been awarding merit scholarships and need-based financial assistance to deserving students. Every year the university distributes at least 9% of its total earnings among 20% or more of its regular students. Such scholarships/financial assistance are not available to those students who have already spent the normal study time required for the programs for which they are enrolled (e.g. Bachelor’s degree program students are not eligible for any scholarship/financial aid beyond the four years that are required to complete the course as a regular student).  No student of the university is entitled to benefit from more than one scholarship/financial aid facility at any point of time.
According to the provision of the Private University Act, 1992, private universities are required to provide scholarships to 5 (five) percent of its enrolled poor but meritorious students. Since its inception, the founders of East West University have adopted a policy of not paying any profit or dividend to themselves but to use a good part of its operating surplus towards nurturing merit and providing financial support to those in need. In the last eight years, the scholarship and financial aid policy adopted by
East West University has become a source of great encouragement to meritorious but financially constrained students. The academic world has greeted this policy pursued by East West University enthusiastically.
EWU has generous Merit Scholarships and Financial Aid Programs. Taka 2,89,55,780 was awarded to 923 students in 2010.

Benefits to students are awarded in the following forms:

Merit Scholarships
(i) 2 top scorers in admission tests with a minimum score of 75%  marks;
(ii) Candidates scoring GPA 5.00 (excluding 4th subject) in the latest SSC & HSC examinations or 7 A's in 'O' Level (at one sitting) and 3 A's in 'A' Level (at one sitting) will be awarded 100% merit scholarship at entry level for 4 years subject to maintenance of minimum CGPA 3.50 in each semester.
(iii) Top 10% students of each batch of each Department of undergraduate     programs of each Department who have completed at least one-fourth of the total credit requirement of the program during the immediate past year with a CGPA of 3.97 and above, will get full tuition free Merit Scholarship for equal number of credits to be adjusted in the next three consecutive semesters and those with CGPA of 3.90 to CGPA 3.96 will get half tuition free Merit Scholarship for equal number of credits to be adjusted in the next three consecutive semesters. To be eligible for Financial Aid and Merit scholarship a student of Undergraduate Program must earn credits as mentioned in the table below, in the last three consecutive semesters:
B. Sc. in Computer Science & Engineering* (CSE)
B. Sc. in Information & Communication Engineering* (ICE)
B.Sc. in Electronic & Telecommunication Engineering* (ETE)
B. Sc. in Electrical & Electronic Engineering* (EEE)
Bachelor of Pharmacy** (B. Pharm.)
BBA with major in Accounting, Finance, HRM, Marketing, Management, MIS & ITB
BA in English (ENG)
BSS in Economics

Scholarships are extendable, subject to fulfillment of requirement in (iii) above. The Merit Scholarship is discontinued if any student of the undergraduate or graduate program violates the East West University disciplinary code for students, 2008 and/or if his/her CGPA falls below 3.50.
Freedom Fighters' Scholarship
As a mark of respect to the valiant freedom fighters of the War of Liberation and Independence, the university reserves 5% admission quota for the wards of freedom fighters of all categories, subject to their fulfillments of the minimum admission requirement at East West University. The university also considers maximum 100% tuition waiver scholarship to the wards of wounded, deceased and financially needy freedom fighters, subject to the fulfillment of the following requirements:
The candidate must qualify in the EWU admission test; the candidate must provide proof that his/her parent was a freedom fighter. The Tuition Fee waiver as above will then be continued provided that the CGPA in each semester remains 2.70 or more.
To avail financial aid, undergraduate students must register for at least three courses (9 credits) in each semester. (For the students of B.Pharm. this requirement is at least four courses) Financial Aid is discontinued if any student of undergraduate or graduate program violates the East West University Disciplinary Code for students and/or if his/her CGPA falls below 2.70. The same is applicable for the beneficiaries of siblings and other similar cases and for Freedom Fighters' Scholarship.

Directors Scholarships

Each of the fifteen Founder Directors of the university, at a point of time, awards two full-tuition scholarships to two students or splits the scholarships into half or quarter tuition waiver/scholarships. This is renewable at the discretion of the Founder Director concerned unless the recipient scholar performs poorly.

About East West University

The idea of establishing a private university to provide quality education at an affordable cost in Bangladesh was first mooted by a group of prominent academics, business leaders, professionals and education enthusiasts led by Dr. Mohammed Farashuddin.
