Entoto Observatory and Research Center (EO) Graduate students’ tuition fees Directive:
It is necessary to set up tuition fee regulation for the observatory. Thus, Entoto Observatory and Research Center (EO) sets two different rates of tuition fees for each individual master and doctorate degree programme of study. These are ‘home’ and ‘oversea’ rates. ‘Home’ fees are charged to Ethiopian citizens while Non-Ethiopian students are charged ‘oversea’ fees. In general, ‘oversea’ rate is higher due to the fact that the Ethiopian government doesn’t subsidize education cost for foreign students.
