Students who commence in our July intake have the flexibility to “restart” their foundation studies in our September intake at no cost. This allows students, whose final year of secondary school studies have been disrupted, the confidence to start on their tertiary studies, worry free. This flexibility also allows for students to change their mind on their programme of study.
We understand that a foundation programme can incur a large commitment from parents. In response to this, the University have created a flexible fee plan.
Providing further worry-free commencement, we are also offering a 70% refund of tuition fees should students change their mind and decide to withdraw by 30 Aug 2021, and do not wish to “restart” their studies in September intakes.
Fee payment options:
Full tuition fees paid over 6 instalments or opt to pay full first semester fees which entitles you to an Early Bird Waiver while it is available
