If you are offered a place on one of the following programmes offered by the Graduate School of Business, you will be asked to pay an acceptance deposit as reflected below. Acceptance deposits are not payable for any other programmes at UCT.

|Master of Business Administration: International applicants||R30 000|
|Executive Master of Business Administration: South African/African applicants||R15 000|

Students at UCT pay tuition fees for every course taken. These tuition fees vary from course to course and cover:
- all charges for classes, tutorials and laboratories
- ordinary university examinations
- library access
- compulsory personal accident insurance
- the use of general sporting facilities
- in the case of medical students, hospital fees for clinical instruction.
Note: Tuition fees do not cover membership to clubs or societies.
Residence fees are available in the Student Fees handbook. Please be aware that for catering residences, the meal costs should be added to the residence cost.
Various charges such as society subscriptions, library fines, traffic fines, student health charges, residence damage costs and emergency loans may be debited to a student's fees account if they were not settled in the course of the year.
Such charges often appear on accounts late in the year, so it is important to check for these charges before the year-end to ensure acceptance to the next academic year or an invitation to graduate.
The university charges monthly interest on outstanding balances at 1%. Given that the final fee payment is due on 30 June, interest is charged on 31 July and at the end of each succeeding month.
