Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar denied on Tuesday rumors of an agreement between the Student Union and the Board of High Education that would result in an increase in university fees.

"There is no agreement between the parties as to tuition levels, this will only be discussed within the framework of negotiations," said the minister. On Monday the Student Union Presidency approved guidelines for its negotiations with the Treasury, including proposed tuition refunds for students totaling NIS 100m.
