All the above course fees are exclude textbooks, accommodation and other study materials.
– Course fees (shown in Ringgit Malaysia) are based on a normal full-time work load of 200 credits per year unless otherwise stated. Students studying more than 200 credits per year will have a higher annual course fee. The course fee is calculated and charged on a semester basis.
A student should expect that the indicative semester course fee, as shown on the Letter of Offer, might vary from the actual course fee according to the units (subjects) undertaken. The indicative fee is just a guide as to what the course fee will be, until semester enrolment is completed.
