Tuition fees to study towards the Bachelor of Education in Foundation Phase Teaching programme include all study material, assignments, tuition, examinations, and access to a student portal, as well as face-to-face academic support sessions.
All students are expected to pay a registration fee with the first enrolment on the programme and an annual re-registration fee for each new academic year thereafter, which is payable before the commencement of a new academic year. This registration and re-registration fee is deducted from the annual tuition fee payable.
Annual tuition fees for first year enrolment ranges from a minimum of R21 000 to a maximum of R22 650, depending on the language choices.
Three different tuition fee payment options are available to accommodate the needs of individual students. Each payment option is related to the date of payment to which the student must rigidly adhere. An early payment discount is offered to students who settle their tuition fee account timeously, as illustrated in Table 1. The three options available are:
Option 1: TWO equalinstalments, one per semester; due dates 31 August and 31 March
Option 2: TWO equal instalments, one per semester; due dates 30 September and 30 April
Option 3: TEN equal monthly instalments;month end.

** Table 1 illustrates the fee structure of a student who completes the programme in four years based on the minimum annual tuition fees of R21 000.
It should be noted that fees are charged per module as per the table below. This rate per module will be applicable for students who have to repeat a specific module. If a student elects to enrol for fewer modules than the proposed semester structure, as might be the case for part-time students, the total tuition fees due in a given calendar year may vary from the amounts listed in the table above. The same discount formula will, however, be applied if the criteria stipulated in the table above are met.
Applicants that are applying for a student loan or bursary should apply for a total amount that includes the tuition and study material fees payable to the institution. The discounts offered will be credited to the student’s account in the event that a loan or bursary is paid on or before the payment due dates as per the table above.
