Terms and Conditions

UWC East Africa charges tuition fees annually to cover the full costs of tuition, exercise books, loan of text books and participation in the sports, CAS and co-curricular activities programmes. We usually charge separately for individual music lessons, as a contribution to the Outdoor Pursuits programme, or for special language instruction.

Residential fees include the full costs of residential care, accommodation, food, laundry and medical services provided by the school nurse or school doctor.

There are reductions on tuition and residential fees for 2nd, 3rd and subsequent children in a family who are currently enrolled in UWC East Africa in classes other than Early Childhood; these are 5%, 10% and 20% of the figures above respectively.

Fees are revised monthly and parents will be expected to pay the fee being charged at the time of payment. The School uses a mean commercial bank rate each month to calculate conversion between US dollars, TSh and other currencies. Tanzanian citizens and residents will normally pay fees in Tanzanian shillings.

Parents of children in Early Childhood are not required to pay the Capital Development Fee or Deposit until their child joins P1.

The tuition and residential fees shown above are for fees received through quarterly or other instalments. For those paying full fees who first joined the school in either PYP or MYP, if fees are received before 1st July in the month before the new school year starts, a 5% discount on these fees will be granted, although this discount will be cancelled if the child does not continue to be enrolled for the whole of the relevant school year.

  • By bank transfer in TSh or US$ transferred to our bank account in Tanzania
