** Part-credit study: Students who do not enrol for the full 120 credits in one academic year. The registration fee for part-credit studies is R17 750. Part-credit fees are determined by the number of credits a student enrols for.  Discounts apply to enrolment for at least 60 credits.

If costs are incurred when money is transferred from abroad, these costs will be debited to the student’s account (between R250 and R850 per transaction).

The CTCA awards bursaries to applicants and enrolled students based on merit and academic achievement.

The following bursaries are available to South African citizens:


In order to promote the recruitment of candidates with a high academic standard, the CTCA awards bursaries to applicants with exceptional talent and outstanding academic performance. Selected candidates with an APS above 39 or with exceptional artistic talent will be invited to apply for the bursary. 

Applicants must apply for enrolment before the end of October prior to the year of study in order to be eligible for a First Year Merit Bursary.


In order to promote diversity and achieve social equity, the CTCA awards bursaries to students from historically disadvantaged backgrounds who successfully completed the selection process, but do not have the financial means to enrol for study at CTCA.
