PARENTS AND students face third-level fees of €3,000 a year by 2015, Minister for Education Ruairí Quinn has confirmed.

Mr Quinn told the Oireachtas Education Committee yesterday the student contribution fee – currently €2,250 – will increase to €2,500 next year and €2,750 in 2014. He said this year’s increase of €250 would generate an additional €18 million for the exchequer.
