Fees and Funding

Fees

The fees structure for Masters and PhD degree programs depend on the mode of study (Course Work and Dissertations, Course Work and Project and Research and Thesis). The fees structure is arranged in three categories:

  • Category I - Students from Tanzania
  • Category II - Students from EAC/SADC countries
  • Category III - Students from Non EAC/SADC countries

All Direct University Costs are paid once during reporting at the start of the year of study, except for Tuition Fee which is paid either in full amount during reporting for a degree programme or it is paid per year at the start of the academic year of study. For private candidates, tuition fees may be paid by instalments (at least 40% on reporting and 10% before the end of the first semester, and at least 40% at the start of the second semester and 10% before the end of the second semester) within a particular year of study.

For students with scholarships, the sponsors are free to send the Indicative Direct Student Costs, directly to a particular student or to the University, and the sponsored student can request the fund upon arrival to the University after completion of registration process. However, sponsors will be required to top up the administrative costs such as bank charges, extra duty charges, etc., to manage the students’ scholarships.


Scholarship opportunities

A limited number of scholarship opportunities may be available on competitive bases in each academic year. New opportunities can be found in the Announcements section of the home page (link).

However Students are advised to solicit their own scholarships


Payment Modes

All students’ payments are done online through https://oas.nm-aist.ac.tz:8443/oasm/ for admission application fees and through https://nepp.nm-aist.ac.tz for other fees. Students are free to pay through mobile networks, using MasterCard or Visa Card or through any bank (bank transfer for international students).

Reporting And Registration

The reporting of new students is per semester and they normally report in January in each academic year, while the second semester starts in June each year under normal circumstance. However, reporting period for Master’s and PhD by Research and Thesis (RT) degree programmes is throughout within the academic year.

For preparation of reporting the prospective students can access on our website the information for reporting, registration and orientation. The same information can also be sent to prospective students through their emails.

The prospective students are highly encouraged to properly prepare for reporting by carefully reading and understanding all information so as to avoid any missing documents which may lead to delay f registration for studies.


Application Portal

All applications are done through the NM-AIST Online Admission System (NOAS) which is available on the website: https://www.nm-aist.ac.tz/ or click the direct link: https://oas.nm-aist.ac.tz:8443/noas/ which is also available in the invitation for admissions call which if released each year.
