According to the released fees schedules, the minimum amount that a student of NWU can pay is R 11290 for the first semester.

North-West University School Fees differs according to these classes of students; University Residence Students, Non-Residence, Distance Students and International Students. Follow this article let me show you the breakdown of the school fees schedule.
Tuition fees are made up of two components. The first is the module costs which is based on the specific modules for which a student register. The second is the qualification programme cost. This levy is an adjustment the University makes to the total cost of the specific degree to reflect correctly both the market value of the qualification programme and the demands the qualification programme place on the University infrastructure.
