RESEARCH MASTERS and DOCTORATES


Registrations for research Masters and Doctorates will be levied an annual tuition fee, subject to a possible annual increase and will be payable for each year of registration.

 

HONOURS and MASTERS BY COURSEWORK


Registrations for Honours and Masters by coursework degrees will be levied as per the tables per faculty, provided that the student completes the degree in the prescribed period.


NOT COMPLETED DEGREE WITHIN PRESCRIBED PERIOD


Should a masters by research or doctoral degree not be completed in the prescribed period, the new annual fee structure applicable at that point in time will be applicable for any subsequent years of re-registration that are allowed.


Where a final hard copy of the thesis in the case of doctoral studies; a dissertation in the case of Masters by Research studies and a mini-dissertation in the case of Masters by Coursework studies is submitted to the Student Administration Office of the respective faculty by 15 February, the faculty should liaise with the finance department to have the fees adjusted. Any student who did not submit the final copy of the thesis/dissertation/mini-dissertation by 15 February will have to register again. If the final hard copy of the thesis in the case of doctoral studies; a dissertation in the case of Masters by Research studies and a mini-dissertation in the case of Masters by Coursework studies is submitted to the Student Administration Office of the respective faculty by 31 March, a student will have to re-register and an administration fee (determined on an annual basis) will be levied. If the final hard copy of the thesis in the case of doctoral studies; a dissertation in the case of Masters by Research studies and a mini-dissertation in the case of Masters by Coursework studies is not submitted to the Student Administration Office of the respective faculty by 31 March a student will have to re-register and tuition fees will be levied accordingly.


Should a one-year master’s degree not be completed in one year, the annual fee applicable for that master’s degree will be charged annually from the second year onwards.


INTERRUPTION/LEAVE OF ABSENCE DURING STUDIES


No interruption may occur in a postgraduate student’s registration for a postgraduate study programme. The student has to register every year even if they require a leave of absence for that year. For students who are in exceptional cases granted a period of leave of absence, will be levied only the annual initial registration fee for the year they are absent and will on their return be subject to the new annual tuition fee structure applicable for the year at that point in time.

  • 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 initial fee or re-registration fee is payable prior to registration.

  • Half (50%) of the student’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.

  • The Summary of fees and Statement of Account icons contain handy information. 

  • On discontinuation of studies, all outstanding fees become due immediately.  See the Discontinuation icon for discontinuation dates and how to discontinue.

  • 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.
