The University of Cape Town operates on a fully course-based fee structure inclusive of all "add-ons". Thus, the dictum that "the price you see is the price you pay" applies to all academic offerings across the University.

The University's all inclusive course-based fee structures published in Section 12 of the fees handbook, together with the relevant Faculty handbook, will enable students to accurately calculate the cost of their academic studies at UCT.

The Faculty Handbook will indicate the courses that can be taken in pursuing a programme of study and the relevant course code. Students can use this code to look up the all inclusive cost of the course in the fees handbook. The sum of these costs will give the total cost for the set of chosen courses as there are no levies or additional academic charges.

Faculty handbooks can be obtained from the relevant faculty office and this information is also available on the handbooks page.

Since a student's fees account is based on his/her academic load, it is the student's responsibility to verify the correctness of his/her enrolment for courses in the current year.

You can download the fees handbook from the the right hand column.
