FAQ

Tuition fees per faculty

  • Once a student has registered, his/her personal and own specific student account details, as well as information on possible rebates, can be found on the UP Student Portal (“Student Centre”).
  • If you are a first-time user of the UP Student Portal, go to http://www.up.ac.za/portal; click on “New User” and enter your student number as username. Type in your ID/passport number and click on “Proceed”.
  • Average fees for the various programmes in the faculties are set out in the tables on the following pages and are based on the average cost of the study programmes. 
  • Note that the fees for some study programmes may differ from those specified in the table on the following pages.
  • Fees do not include the cost of prescribed books, stationery, research costs or other study-related expenses.
  • University fees are payable in advance, however, it is permissible to pay your fees in three instalments, viz.:
  • The registration or re-registration fee is payable prior to registration.
  • Half (50%) of the students's full account is payable before or on 30 April
  • The full (100%) amount of the student’s account is payable before or on 31 July.

 

  • On discontinuation of studies, all outstanding fees become due immediately.
  • If a degree is completed mid-year, AND the student registers for a new degree in the same year, the FULL tuition fees are immediately payable on registration. Fees are fully payable by end of July of any study year, irrespective of when in the year the student registered for the programme.
  • Tuition fees are levied for the study programme as a whole or per individual subject course. The latter applies to coursework-based study programmes.
  • Tuition fees for subject course/modules taken in addition to the standard study programme are levied in addition to the tuition fees.
