International student fees vary depending on the region you’re from and the type of qualification you pursue.

IAPO will send you a fee pro-forma invoice detailing the cost of your study for the duration of your stay.

You’ll need to pay an initial minimum tuition fee (and accommodation fees if given on-campus housing) and provide proof of payment to IAPO.

Once your fee payment is verified, you are able to begin the pre-registration process.

More information on international student fees can be found on the Postgrad Hub and in the Fees section of the IAPO website.


There is limited funding available for international and refugee students. These awards do not cover the full cost of attendance.

More information on funding can be found on the Postgrad Hub here.

Note you must submit your UCT admissions application before applying for UCT funding.
