- All Botho University programmes follow a credit based tuition fee structure. Every programme consists of modules worth a specific number of credits. The number of credits for any module is available on www.bothouniversity.com under each programme. 60 credits per semester is normal full time load.
- A student who wishes to take more than 60 credits in a semester requires special permission from the Dean. The tuition fee for a module is thus obtained by multiplying the module credits by the fee per credit (for e.g:- if the module is 10 credits the fees payable per module for an Undergraduate programme will be 10 x 200 = P2000.00). The tuition fee for a programme can thus be obtained by adding the fees for all the modules, calculated as explained earlier.
