7 TERMS OF PAYMENT 1 FEES Fees are determined by Council from time to time and are subject to revision without notice. 1. TERMS OF PAYMENT A registered student (or legal guardian) is personally liable for all tuition and accommodation fees, notwithstanding any pledges of support or bursary that they may have received. It should be noted that the contract which forms part of the application form for admission to the University of Cape Town and which to that end was signed by the student and/or their legal guardian, legally binds those parties to pay the full tuition and accommodation fees for a particular year of registration as determined by the University. This liability is not affected nor reduced through ignorance on the part of the student/guardian regarding the rules and regulations of the University of Cape Town or of the validity of his/her registration in terms of the said rules and regulations. Since a student s fee account is based on his/her academic record and accommodation choices, it is their responsibility to verify the correctness of this information. 1.1 Tuition Fees Students will be charged for all academic courses for which they register. Initial payment is due on or before 6 February 2015 We do not issue detailed statements of account prior to the initial payment date.

13 ACADEMIC FEES 7 2. ACADEMIC FEES All students from outside South Africa, including students from SADC countries, should also refer to fees for international students in Section 5 of this handbook, pages The University of Cape Town operates on a course-based fee structure inclusive of all addons. Thus, the dictum that the price you see is the price you pay applies to all academic offerings across the University. Please note that residence, catering and miscellaneous fees such as subscriptions to clubs and societies are itemised and charged separately on the student fee account. The University s all inclusive course-based fee structures published in Section 12 of this booklet, together with the relevant Faculty handbook, will enable students to accurately calculate the cost of their academic studies at UCT in The Faculty handbook will indicate the courses that can be taken in pursuing a qualification and the relevant course code. Use this code to look up the all-inclusive cost of the course in this booklet. The sum of these costs will give you the total cost for the set of chosen courses as there are no levies or additional academic charges. Faculty handbooks containing the curriculum for each qualification can be obtained from the relevant faculty office and this information is also available on the UCT web site: https://www.uct.ac.za/apply/handbooks. Since a student s fees account is based on his/her academic load, it is the student s responsibility to verify the correctness of his/her enrolment for courses in the current year. In order to assist first time applicants, the table below lists fees for typical first-year undergraduate degrees for South African applicants. It will give you an idea of what the fees are likely to be.
