PLEASE NOTE: The PDIR programme is a Self-funded Teaching Programme and, as such, students are not eligible for NSFAS funding, financial concessions, or university residence. Students will be required to obtain financial clearance each year before registration. This will require the settlement IN FULL of any outstanding fees (an AOD will not suffice).
