Compulsory first instalment
The compulsory first instalment on study fees is payable in full by all students before the date of registration. Allow 3 – 5 days processing time in order to activate the student card for the specific academic year.
Payment arrangement application forms for the compulsory first instalment can be obtained from the Student Fees Section in January of the academic year provided any outstanding amount from the previous year of study has been settled in full.
Bursary holders who did submit written proof of the bursary granted via email to email@example.com might be exempted from the compulsory first instalment if the amount of the bursary is sufficient to cover the compulsory first instalment. If the amount is less, the student is responsible for paying the difference at the date of registration.
Students who only register for a few modules and the total study fees are less than the compulsory first instalment, have to pay the full amount of the study fees before registration.

The examination results of students with overdue student fees accounts payable on the fixed dates shall not be made known until the outstanding balance has been paid in full.
If the study fees are paid in full on or before 31 March, a rebate of 3% will be granted on tuition fees only, provided the prescribed application form and proof of payment are handed in at the Student Fees Section. The rebate will only be considered in the relevant year of study and are only applicable to local students, parents or guardians, and international students with a valid permanent residence that are full financially responsible for the total student fees account. International students and students funded by bursary companies do not qualify.
