Ireland is facing a shortage of funds for higher education. A new plan proposes that, rather than raising tuition fees, graduates should have to pay a “graduate tax” to repay some of the costs of their education.
Dental students would face a €64,000 tax upon graduation.
Proponents of the plan insist that other graduates would have to pay far less, with the average student facing a €12,000 graduation tax.
As if dental school wasn’t expensive enough… How would you feel about paying an $87,000 tax to graduate?
