Wits Fees

The University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg, South Africa, has a fee structure that depends on the program of study. Below is the breakdown:

  • Tuition Fees: Tuition fees are payable for each course for which a student is registered2. The exact amount depends on the specific program and course.
  • Additional Costs: Students also need to budget for books, stationery, travel costs, as well as pocket money and sundry expenses. These additional amounts will be reflected on the student’s fee account.
  • Residence Fees: If you plan to live on campus, you’ll also need to consider residence fees. These are available on the Campus Housing and Residence Life website.

Please note that charges ancillary to tuition fees, such as charges for course notes or excursion costs are not included in the amounts listed. Club membership fees are also not listed.
