Some guidance to uncomplicate payments and installments
College bank accounts
Payments via First National Bank tend to be processed more promptly. Use whichever bank is most accessible to you.
First National Bank
Branch Code: 250655
SWIFT code: FIRNZAJJ
Account: 201 075 814
Branch Code: 006405
SWIFT code: SBZAZAJJ
Student payments: For any deposit reference please your Student Number (or national ID number) together with your Surname and Initials.
International students: you must forward your proof of payment to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can identify and allocate your payment (references tend to get deleted on statements for international payments).
Option C is the instalment option to pay your studies fees at TEEC. You do not need to apply or get approval – we will allow you to register up to three courses using Option C provided you submit a debit order mandate and make your payments by the due dates. If you fail to make your payments on time then we do not permit you to use Option C again.
If you don’t qualify for Option C yet wish to take advantage of the “full payment discounts” but don’t have the funds, then there are alternatives – where you make payment arrangements with someone else who pays your fees up-front for you at the discounted price (this is usually in the form of a loan which you re-pay to them in instalments).
Please do not put your study fees on your credit card budget facility (that is very expensive). Do pay attention to the re-payment terms for any loan!
There are financial institutions which assist with loan arrangements for students: Fundi and Student Hero are popular ones — also check out what your bank can provide. TEEC students do not qualify for NSFAS.
Get your application in early (with the application fee) — but remember to make your Option A / B payment, or your Option C deposit, before the registration closing date (earlier is better as you will then get access to your study materials sooner – dispatch gets really busy with the last minute rush). You will be sent email or SMS reminders … don’t ignore them.
