- The following issue tackled by ANOSR was aimed at the sudden and unjustified increase of the residency’s registration fees for Health Studies graduates (Medicine and Pharmacy).

- At the beginning of this month, ANOSR brought into light the confusion in regard to the awarding of free tickets to students for railway transport. Unfortunately, this type of situation seems to be recurring each and every year, however, in these times, this issue would prove to be even more substantial due to the worldwide pandemic. As such, ANOSR requested the Ministry of Transport to hasten the process of adopting a decision that would extend student transport card validity.
