Overview of Fees

Fees required from students from South Asian nations are significantly subsidised. Each South Asian student is required to pay 75 percent of the total cost. SAIACS is committed to raising the remaining amount. Select candidates may receive a further 5-20-percent scholarship based upon their unique situation. SAIACS relies on donations and student scholarship subscriptions to enable fees to be held at the current rates.

Many students or their organisations will be required to pay the above subsidised fee. On the other hand, some South Asian students may need further assistance. If you believe you qualify for this, please apply during the admission process with details of your case and declare what fees you are able to pay.

Unless otherwise noted, fees include tuition, research supervision, use of the library, use of computer facilities, provision of study material, examination fees, graduation fee, book grant, and apartment maintenance fee.

Fees for students in the residence halls include room rent and full board. Fees for students in family apartments include apartment rent, weekday lunches, and a community dinner on Friday nights.

For MA students, any travel and food expenses incurred during weekly Context-Based Learning (CBL) and the summer internship are not included. For MTh (PTC) students, any travel and living expenses incurred during the two-month internship at CCC, Vellore, is not included.

Normally we expect sending institutions to support their students with both fees and living expenses. If a student applies for a SAIACS scholarship, this will be considered on the basis of need. Such applicants must inform SAIACS of any other scholarships they might receive and these must be routed through SAIACS. If a student is not receiving a SAIACS scholarship, there is no need to advise about other scholarships.

Fees for Indian and South Asian students will be made available along with the admissions form. Fees for students from Western and non-Western countries (excluding South Asian countries) differ from those for our South Asian students.
