An offer of a place to study at the University does not imply that financial support will be provided by the University. The obligation to seek and obtain adequate funds to enable a student to complete his/her studies rests entirely with the student. The University charges competitive fees as approved by the Council. Fees should be paid before or at registration. Additional fees may be required when deemed necessary.
No intending student will be permitted to register, to attend classes and to have any access to University facilities unless the student is able to pay the necessary fees or produce written evidence of having adequate sponsorship.
Prescribed fees are valid for one academic semester and these include: tuition, registration, accreditation of Prior Learning, examination, computer, practical, laboratory, caution, field trips, appeal, library, desk, sports, attachment, dissertation/project and graduation.
Procedures for payment of fees

Failure to Pay Fees
A student is only registered for the semester upon full payment of fees. Where a student has not paid the fees in full within the registration period, she/he shall not be allowed to attend lectures until full payment has been made. No University service shall be offered to unregistered students. Where the University is owed money or otherwise by a student, the University shall take legal action.
Only a proportion of the fees as deemed by the University shall be refunded. The remainder shall go towards administration costs.
The University has several scholarships awarded each year to students who meet the requirements. The onus is on the student to apply when these scholarships are advertised. A University Scholarship Committee processes applications and selects successful applicants. If a recipient under performs she/he is warned first, if the performance continues to go down, the scholarship is withdrawn.
