Inscape Education Group fees are made up of the, Tuition Fees and Compulsory Study Pack fees. The combination of these two fees are referred to as the TOTAL ANNUAL FEE.
The Registration Fee is payable on application. The fee enables the processing of the application and secures a place at Inscape on provisional acceptance of the applicant. The following terms and conditions apply:
- If the applicant is accepted and enrols with the institution, the Registration Fee is credited to the student account and is therefore deducted from the TOTAL ANNUAL FEE.
- If the applicant is accepted and does NOT enrol with the institution, the Registration Fee is forfeited by the individual and will NOT be refunded.
- If the applicant is NOT accepted by the institution, the Registration Fee is refunded to the applicant in full. A Refund Application Form must be completed by the applicant.
Tuition Fees are typically charged by education institutions and should include; lecturer fees, lab or studio fees (the use of a venue), courseware including briefs or assignments, a student card, parking in some instances, wifi, access to libraries and additional resources.
The Compulsory Study Pack is an Inscape initiative that ensures learning happens from day one. All students have access to quality products that are legally licensed and current. Inscape has established strong relationships with suppliers and can therefore negotiate good pricing on behalf of the students. All equipment received remains the property of the student even after they have completed their studies at Inscape. Software licenses are renewed annually for the period of enrolment at the institution. All items included in the pack are required by the programme as part of the learning process. The packs are reviewed annually to determine continued relevance of each item. The provision of the Compulsory Study Pack by the institution not only provides convenience to you the student who would need to otherwise source the items independently but more importantly provides you with the ability to be in control of your learning at all times even when you are not on campus.
STUDY PACK OPTIONS
Compulsory Study Packs include the option to receive the pack including or excluding a device (laptop or Macbook). When a student chooses to exclude a device, they are required to ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD). The device must meet the minimum specification requirements for the chosen qualification. The student is required to complete a Right of Use Agreement for the institution to provide relevant software, manage and maintain the device. A cost will be levied for this purpose.
The Bachelor of Design programme includes 4 packages to assist students in accessing quality higher education whilst receiving a device that they can afford. These packages are referred to as The Booster Package, The Standard Package, The Entry Level Package and The BYOD Package respectively. The packages are differentiated by device choices of varying quality and cost. The Entry Level Package is the absolute minimum requirements needed for this programme.
The TOTAL ANNUAL FEE is calculated in advance and is published each year on the 1st March for the following academic year. This allows you time to plan and secure the necessary funds to access us as your chosen institution. Our enrolment periods are detailed below. By making a minimum of 20% of the TOTAL ANNUAL FEE you will secure your enrolment for the following academic year.
