What is your study programme?

There are different kinds of tuition fees: the statutory tuition fees and the institutional tuition fees. The amount you will pay in tuition depends on:

  • your nationality;
  • the programme in which you enrol;
  • whether you are a full-time or part-time student (applies only to the statutory tuition fees).
