- The above full amounts are based on current regulations and are subject to change.
- We use a cost of living index thus the amount can change from year to year.
- In addition to tuition fees, textbooks must be purchased and practicum fees (actual amount) must be paid.
- If payment due dates fall on a Saturday, Sunday or national holiday, the payment due date shall be the next financial institution business day.
Every year, payment will be direct debited from the designated account on the payment due date.
Take care to avoid late payments in both semesters. Students who fail to make tuition fee payments even with reminder notices may be removed from the student register.
