Fees

Fees are set by the University Council during October or November each year so the exact fees for 2015 will only be known towards the end of 2014. It is likely that fees will be increased but to assist you in your planning the fees for 2015 are:

Tuition fees (vary from degree to degree) − R27 000 to R46 930. Residence fees (all meals − not including vacations) − R48 100 to R57 000 depending on grade of accommodation chosen. Book allowance for books and stationery − approximately R5 500.

Note that this does NOT include travel expenses or pocket money. In planning for next year it is suggested that you allow for an increase in tuition and residence fees of between 10% to 14%, and you should note that fees are increased each year.

If you are offered an academic place at the University you will be asked to send a non-refundable deposit to book your academic and residence place (if required). Full details of the deposits required will be supplied to you if you are offered an academic place in the University. The deposit will be credited to your account when you register and will be used to reduce the amount owing on your account.

Before you are permitted to register at the University, a Minimum Initial Payment (MIP) of approximately half the annual fee is required, but if you hold a bursary or scholarship the MIP may be reduced in certain circumstances. Full details of the amounts due and the dates by which they must be paid will be supplied in your letter of acceptance, if you are offered an academic place in the University.

MERIT AWARDS (SOUTH AFRICAN APPLICANTS ONLY)

Merit awards are calculated on your results obtained in the final Matric Examinations and will be automatically credited to your fees account after registration (in other words, you do not need to apply for this award). The Merit Awards for 2015 are calculated as follows:

PLEASE NOTE THAT FOREIGN STUDENTS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR MERIT AWARDS.
