More than 200 pharmacy students demonstrated in Dublin city centre this morning against what they say are exorbitant fees that have trebled in recent years to more than €8000, and over the removal of payments for four- and eight-month internships they are obliged to complete.

While the students welcomed a “clarification” received yesterday that their internships could be “paid or unpaid”, they said the clarification was vague and they needed assurances that they would be paid.
