Fees

Fees for all UCT courses are available in the latest UCT Fees Handbook, Handbook 12 (redirects to UCT Fees Handbook page with downloadable PDF booklet). Unfortunately, the LISC department cannot provide you with an estimate of your tuition fees.

Please bear in mind that there are different fee structures for South African students, international students from the SADC region, and other international students. Guidelines for international student fees are also available on the UCT Fees Handbook page. Additional fees may accrue for late payments.

The following curriculum structures will help you to work out your fees in conjunction with the Handbook. PGDipLIS course codes as used in 2018 are provided for referencing the 2018 Handbook. The 2019 Fees Handbook will use the 2019 codes.
