At the beginning of each academic year, all Tanzanian students will be required to produce evidence of having been granted a loan from the Higher Education Students Loan Board or evidence of scholarship awards; otherwise they will be expected to pay full tuition and other Institute fees at the beginning of each semester before they are registered.

Payment of fees should be made before or during registration. Failure to pay within the specified period may result in withdraw of registration.

Fees for various courses consist of the amount payable directly to the Institute and that payable directly to students. Whereas the amount payable directly to the Institute covers for tuition, field supervision, students’ organization, and  registration; and the amount payable directly to the student covers for meals allowance, books and stationery, accommodation, medical allowance, practical training allowance and dissertation production. However, the amount to be paid to students will normally depend on their sponsors’ policies.

Note: It should be noted here that fees may change any time without notice.
