In 2011 the fees for a full year course are R 7540 and R 3790 for a half course on first and second year level. At third year level the fees are R 9080 for a full year course (the same rate as the full-time courses). This amount excludes a note fee, which varies from course to course. There are no additional charges for exams or the use of the Wits Plus computer lab. Textbooks are expensive but are tools for life and will cost between R 1000 and R1500 per course. (Note: In 2012 fees are likely to rise by approximately 9%). Note that by the time registration takes place in February 2012, students will have had to pay the upfront deposit amount of ±R 8000. This fee forms part of the tuition costs and is therefore not an additional charge.
Remember a degree is an investment in yourself and your life. Your earning capacity rises significantly as a graduate. You add value to the economy and to your employer’s business – consult your employer or the company H R department about possible company financial support, loans or a bursary to pay your fees.
Terms of payment are in accordance with the University regulations. Part-time students are not eligible for university bursaries or residential accommodation, but we advise prospective students to find out about company loans or bursaries or to ask the principal banks about student loans or contact Eduloan at 0860 55 55 44.
