  • Where tuition fees are levied for a study programme as a whole, the full fee is payable in the first year of registration, even when registration takes place late in the year.

  • Students can apply for a “gap year” within their Faculty by obtaining the Dean of that Faculty’s approval. However, take note that the annual registration fees will still be applicable for the gap year, to ensure that no interruption is recorded.

Medical aid for international students
 
Please note, that DHA does NOT accept any outside medical cover anymore. Including the ones that have always been accepted: (PULA, Swazimed, Bomaid, Namibhealth etc. etc.) since last year according to International Education Association Of South Africa (IEASA).
 
All non-South African citizens, including students who are citizens from SADC countries, need to comply with the visa regulation as determined by the Immigration Act, Act 19 of 2004.
Regulation 10(1) (i) determines the following:
An applicant for a study visa is required to provide proof of medical aid cover with a medical scheme registered in terms of the Medical Schemes Act, Act 131 of 1998, recognised in the Republic.
https://www.medicalschemes.com/MedicalSchemes.aspx?flt=L
The University requires that the medical aid cover be valid for the full academic year for which you seek registration until 31 December.
Study Abroad and Exchange Students must secure medical cover for the duration of their stay.  A minimum of six (6) months’ cover is provided by medical companies.  This provision is for Study Abroad and Exchange students only.
Month-to-month medical aid cover will only be acceptable from dependents on submission of the confirmation letter from the main member’s medical aid service provider.
Should students rely on sponsorships, they should ensure that the sponsor is advised of this requirement at the onset of the sponsorship of the admission offer from the University.  UP does not accept sponsorship letters in lieu of payment.  Payment of the required medical aid cover fee is made directly to the medical aid service provider, prior to immigration clearance for registration.
The medical service providers stated below are medical aid companies with developed student-focused products that are registered in terms of the Medical Schemes Act.  These companies offer the minimum benefits that a student may require while in South Africa.
Take note:  Although you may, with another international insurance or medical product, secure a study visa from a South African visa issuing authority, the University of Pretoria, in accordance with the Immigration Act, does not recognise such medical cover for registration purposes.
Momentum Health offers weekly consultation sessions on the Hatfield Campus, International Students Division offices, Client Service Centre.  Students can join both schemes online.

If the final hard copy of the thesis in the case of doctoral studies; a dissertation in the case of
Masters by Research studies and a mini-dissertation in the case of Masters by Coursework studies is

Study Abroad and Exchange Students must secure medical cover for the duration of their stay.  A minimum of six (6) months’ cover is provided by medical companies.  This provision is for Study Abroad and Exchange students only.
Month-to-month medical aid cover will only be acceptable from dependents on submission of the confirmation letter from the main member’s medical aid service provider.
Should students rely on sponsorships, they should ensure that the sponsor is advised of this requirement at the onset of the sponsorship of the admission offer from the University.  UP does not accept sponsorship letters in lieu of payment.  Payment of the required medical aid cover fee is made directly to the medical aid service provider, prior to immigration clearance for registration.
The medical service providers stated below are medical aid companies with developed student-focused products that are registered in terms of the Medical Schemes Act.  These companies offer the minimum benefits that a student may require while in South Africa.
Take note:  Although you may, with another international insurance or medical product, secure a study visa from a South African visa issuing authority, the University of Pretoria, in accordance with the Immigration Act, does not recognise such medical cover for registration purposes.
Momentum Health offers weekly consultation sessions on the Hatfield Campus, International Students Division offices, Client Service Centre.  Students can join both schemes online.
