Books, stationery and equipment

USEFUL

INFORMATION

Currency

The currency in South Africa is the Rand. Bank notes currently available are R100, R50, R20 and R10. Coins are R5, R2, R1, 50c, 20c, 10c and 5c. There is no restriction on the amount of foreign currency being brought into the country, as long as it is declared to the Customs/Excise official on arrival.

Whilst you will need some cash with you on arrival for travel costs to the University as well as general expenses during the first few weeks on campus, it is wise to bring most of your money in travelers cheques.

Monetary Values

Foreign money and travelers cheques, provided the currency is accepted in South Africa, may be converted into local currency at most banks and other authorised institutions such as Bureau de Changes, American Express, Thomas Cooke/Rennies, Travel Agencies, Airlines, etc. Some hotels and restaurants do accept travelers’ cheques for payment of services and purchases.

Banking

We recommend that you provide a little more money than required and that you place it in a bank account until needed. (The bank will require you to produce your passport to open such an account.) This has the advantage of avoiding delays and extra costs, which can be incurred in the transfer of additional funds at a later stage.

Financial Aid

Regrettably, financial aid is not available to international students. International students are advised to make enquiries from their local Minister of Education or Scholarship Offices at universities in their country of origin
