Tuition and Fees

Students who accept an admission offer for a diploma course must return a signed Tuition Agreement to MTCNE. The Tuition Agreement outlines the tuition details including the payment schedule. Students sponsored by a third party must complete the sponsorship details before returning the signed Agreement.

Tuition is due at the start of each session. Tuition is invoiced and students are expected to pay tuition invoices promptly. Late tuition payments are subject to late charges.

Tuition fees are indicated in line with course information by level and location.  Go to “Courses” and navigate to the level and course of interest for upcoming courses, scheduling and tuition information.
