PLEASE NOTE

*Annual Fee Increase

The university increases fees annually. Applicants embarking on two-year programmes – or programmes that straddle two calendar years – must factor in fee increases for their courses in the 2nd academic year of study.


Fees and payment dates

Please note that fees and the associated payment structures differ for South African students (incl. permanent SA residence holders), African students (incl. permanent African states residence holders) and non-African students. Payment for tuition is required before registration. Please consult the fees handbook for more details.


Students 

Non South African Students
All students from outside South Africa (incl. students with permanent residency status in African countries) are required to make the full payment of tuition fees for the academic year prior to registration.

South African Students
South African students (incl. students with SA permanent residence status) must make the initial payment prior to registration. The initial payment amount is typically set as 35% of the total fee debt for the year. In the event of late payment, this will be subject to a once-off late payment fee of 8% of the total annual fee. You will be allowed to register if the initial payment has not been received by the due date. Payment of the balance of fees for the year is due on 31 July. We send out detailed statements of account every month from March onwards. Note that interest is charged on outstanding balances after 31 July. Refer to the fees handbook for details.


**Acceptance Fees

An acceptance fee is required for all GSB programmes. This must be paid upon acceptance of the offer and secures your place on the programme. An acceptance fee of ZAR 25,000 is applicable to all GSB students applying for Masters level programmes. Postgraduate Diploma level students must pay an acceptance fee of ZAR 15,000. This is credited against the initial payment due upon registration. Note that this acceptance fee is subject to cancellation charges, calculated on a sliding scale, should you subsequently withdraw your acceptance (please refer to the fees handbook for details).
