Minimum amount payable at registration
Structured master's degree
A minimum fee amount is payable before the closing dates for registration for each module for which you register, as well as the outstanding balance by the relevant due dates (refer to the prescribed fees for master's degrees). Once you have completed the modules and register for the Research Proposal Module and the dissertation, the full fees are payable at the time of registration.
Research master's degree and doctoral degree
If you are registering for the Research Proposal Module or the research component (dissertation of limited scope, dissertation or thesis), you must pay your fees in full before your registration will be finalised for the relevant academic year (refer to the prescribed fees for master's degrees and the prescribed fees for doctoral degrees).
All fees must be paid into the correct bank account with the correct reference number or else the university will not be able to process your registration before the relevant closing date. In the case where a letter from an employer/sponsor assumes responsibility for payment, the university can provide the employer/sponsor with a quotation. Registration will only be activated upon receipt of the minimum payment by the relevant closing date. Unisa does not issue invoices to companies or government departments. Compulsory miscellaneous fees, where applicable, are also payable on registration. These include the levy for students in foreign countries.
