How do the payments work?

Non-refundable registration fee:

Enrolment fee:

The enrolment fee is part of your tuition fee payment, payable upfront to ensure your enrolment is complete.

Tuition fees:

Tuition fees are payable for your studies at Inscape. Your tuition fee provides for qualified and specialised lecturers and facilities, a small classroom dynamic that allows for individual attention, continuous academic and administrative support and regular industry exposure and networking opportunities.

Compulsory study Pack:

The study packs are programme specific and tailor made to suit your needs and provide optimal efficiency when starting your studies with us. The packs offered at Inscape ensure that learning takes place from day one. The quality of work that students produce is enhanced by having access to the tools required of a designer 24/7. Students are therefore not limited to the accessibility of resources or the need to share resources with peers. Designers require certain items that they just cannot do without. The study pack items are industry and operational critical, as design students need to be fluent in technology and creativity in order to optimally function in industry. That is why we provide our students with the tools that are necessary to do so. Our students take these tools into Industry, already putting them one step ahead.

MacBook/Laptop option:

Inscape has partnered with suppliers in Industry to secure the best price for devices and provides these to you at discounted rates. Choosing to secure your device through Inscape will save you money and will ensure that you have the needed technology support for the duration of your studies.

How do our fees compare with other institutions?
Inscape fees are comparable to other Institutions.
