More Details on the Bursary

  • For domestic applicants only, enrolled full-time.
  • Eligible students will be required to pay their remaining first semester tuition fees by semester start date.
  • The Proud to be Northern Bursary will be applied towards second semester tuition fees on day 10 of the semester. The remainder of tuition fees will be paid by the student.
  • If student is deemed as part-time, or as withdrawn formally (documentation completed) or informally (no attendance, no appropriate documentation or communication) any time during first semester or second semester, regular full fees are due; the entrance award is forfeited.
