Lessons, board and lodging for 2018
It was in the hopes that the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) would have given us more clarification on the impact of the President's declaration on financing and fees. This was carried out after consultation with the student council and with the assistance of the University Finance Committee.
UCT fees may seem high compared to some other colleges in the state. However, when making a comparison, you should be conscious that UCT fees are all-inclusive, unlike most other university. The UCT also provides free notebooks for freshmen, which are financed by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) and do not have their own.
Anyone who is entitled to NSFAS financing within the framework of the NSFAS framework is entitled to receive additional NSFAS financing from UCT if this is not sufficient. As in the past, UCT will provide continued support, usually in the guise of a loan, to student from homes above the NSFAS earnings ceiling, but below the annual 600,000 level of household earnings (the so-called gap financing model).
The DHET is likely to include the 8% raise for gap group undergraduates. The cost of living for persons who live outside the UCT system will also rise. Meals expenses in hospitality establishments have risen significantly due to in-sourcing, which has led to higher labor outlay.
Fee increases were supplemented by some reductions in costs and revenues from other wells. Let me reiterate that budgets with an income below R600 000 per year are largely sheltered from the rise. We' ll be communicating with our undergraduates as soon as we have more clear NSFAS and DHET policies.
