How much is the registration fee at NWU?

All students must be registered annually as provided in the General Academic Rules, the Statute of the North-West University and the relevant provisions of the Higher Education Act.

Annually, more or less at the beginning of February, it is Registration time for students.

Ease your registration next year by paying your minimum payable fees early (December or January) into the University’s bank account. Also make sure your outstanding University account is fully settled, because you will not be permitted to register for next year if any fees for the year are still outstanding. Also take note that no respite will be granted for payment of the minimum fees payable.

International students must pay the full amount for their proposed study and relevant costs in advance before registration can be finalised.
