The purpose of this section is to give you an indication of the fees linked to the University's full-time postgraduate degree programme offering. In the tabs below (starting with "Tuition Fees"), please note that international students have to consider Tuition fees, the International Registration Fee, International Tuition Fee and Service fees to calculate their total fees, whilst South African students only consider Tuition Fees. Living Expenses are only advisory and do not constitute an exact budget.
Details regarding study fees may be found in the Calendar. Click here to view Part 3 of the University Calendar 2020 which deals with Student Fees. In order to get a detailed breakdown of fees (quotation), request a Provisional Quotation below.
Academic fees for international students consist of four components:
- Tuition fees as payable by South African students;
- International Registration Fee (IRF) payable annually by all non-South African students;
- International Tuition Fee, an additional fixed amount charged annually at registration for the duration of an academic programme;
- Service fees for academic related services and consumable items (also payable by South Africa students, but International Students pay for these in advance).
You can either pay at the university cashiers (credit card payment is possible) once you are in Stellenbosch, or you can transfer the money from your home country.
