Some 41 universities are expected to decrease or freeze this year's tuition to ease the financial burden on students and their parents, the association of national and public universities said on Thursday.
Yonsei University said it will cut this year's tuition by 0.2 percent from last year. It is the first major private university in Seoul to do so. Early this month, Seoul National University decided to reduce tuition fees by 0.3 percent, while Ewha Womans University announced a freeze on tuition increases after retracting its plan to raise it by 2.4 percent. Sookmyung Women's University and Sungshin Women's University also decided to freeze tuition.
