Students enrolled at the Trinidad and Tobago Hospitality and Tourism Institute are this morning up in arms over what they say is an unfair hike in their fees.
The students were recently given an ultimatum: pay their tuition fees or they would not be able to graduate.
One student Josiah Dubarry believes that his education is being held to ransom.
He says that after one semester at the Insitution his fees have doubled with little or no explanation as to why.
Speaking on CNC3 this morning he said that the situation is very distressing.
The situation developed after a decision was taken by the Institution not to accept students relying on the GATE Program as it claimed that the Government failed to pay roughly $5 million in GATE funds.
He says since then developments have led to confusion and have left many questions unanswered.
