Payment Details

The 2021 fees for the HCFM programme are:

R 2 400 annual registration fee per student
R 3 645 per 10 credit module per student
R 7 300 per 20 credit module per student

All the modules of the programme (7) are presented during each calendar year on a continuously revolving cycle (three in the first semester and four in the second semester). However, students must determine their own pace at which they wish complete the programme by deciding which modules to complete each semester, as only they can manage their own time schedules. Please note that student must pass the required number of modules each year to complete the entire programme within the maximum three-year regulation timeframe.

Students must keep in mind that if they are working and studying, the time they have available may make it difficult to complete the entire programme in 12 months. Therefore, they should only register for the number of modules in any year that they will be able to successfully manage, factoring in work, family and other responsibilities.

Please note: A yearly registration fee of R2400 will be charged over and above the fees above.

The tuition fee is payable for every module the student undertakes in any calendar year. Students who register for a module and receive the material for it, will be liable for the tuition fee, regardless of whether or not they attempt the module or engage academically with it. Students can choose to sit out a module before it begins without forfeiting the tuition fee. (i.e. if you sit out a module in 2021, you can do the module in 2022 without repaying your tuition fees).

A student who fails a module, or does not successfully engage with the module, will have to register and pay for that module again in a subsequent academic year.

Payment agreements can be drawn up with the Academy. Please contact us for more info.
