Tuition and related fees

A differentiated study fees structure for international students will be introduced from 2018, when certain categories of international students registering at Stellenbosch University will be charged an international tuition fee (ITF) for the first time. The ITF comprises an additional fixed amount charged annually for the duration of an academic programme and is payable in full at or prior to registration. The ITF will not apply to international students enrolled in doctoral programmes, or in postgraduate programmes delivered on the telematics platform, or international students with SADC (Southern African Development Community) citizenship or permanent residence in South Africa.

The base ITF is set at R43 380 for international students from outside Africa enrolled for bachelors, honours and postgraduate diploma programmes, and R21 690 for those from outside Africa enrolled for master’s programmes. A reduced amount of R20 520 will apply to students from African countries outside SADC enrolled for bachelors, honours and postgraduate diploma programmes.

International Registration Fee (IRF) 2018

  • The IRF is payable annually by all non-South African students including Asylum Seekers.
  • Permanent residency holders and Refugee status students do not pay IRF.
  • In general, if a permanent residence application is successful by the last date for registration (in March and as determined by the University Calendar, Part 1) for the current academic year, then the permanent resident will be allowed to register on this status. However, if the permanent residence status becomes effective after this date, it will only be taken into consideration at the next registration period of the following academic year.
  • If a refugee status application is successful by the last date for registration (in March and as determined by the University Calendar, Part 1) for the current academic year, then the refugee will be allowed to register on this status. However, if the refugee status becomes effective after this date, it will only be taken into consideration at the next registration period of the following academic year.
