 Registration and Fees 2020-2023

Minimum amount payable at registration

A minimum fee amount is payable before the closing dates for registration for each module or paper for which you register. If this amount is not paid before the closing date for registration, the university will not be able to process your registration. After paying the minimum amount, the outstanding balance must be paid by the relevant dates. Note: All fees must be paid into the correct bank account with the correct reference number or else the university will not be able to process your registration before the relevant closing date. In the case where a letter from an employer / sponsor confirming that they assume responsibility for payment is supplied, the university can provide the employer / sponsor with a quotation. Registration will only be activated upon receipt of the minimum payment by the relevant closing date. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the employer / sponsor pay the fees in time. No late payments will be accepted. It is advisable for a student to pay his / her fees and claim it back from the sponsor.
