YOUTHS cared for by a guardian and those in the process of emancipating will not have to pay fees to study at the Balearic Islands University.The Education Regional Department together with the Social Affairs Institute of Mallorca (IMAS) have signed a collaboration agreement to exempt these students from paying fees during the academic year 2015-2016.In a press release, the Education Department explains that there is a prioritised interest to encourage this group of students into university, as most of them have been recipients of protection by social services, support that continues up until they turn 21 years old.Most of these youths have not been able to live with or return to their families for different reasons, and the new agreement aims to promote access to university for them, as they live independently without family support.
