Basic healthcare fees are charged to your miscellaneous student fees and due at the same time as your tuition fees. This is a compulsory scheme with no available opt-out option.

Individuals under the Research Scholars scheme will have their fees automatically deducted each semester from their stipends.

As this scheme is only available for full time students, individuals (Graduate or Undergraduate) converting his/her full-time candidature mid-way to a part-time basis will not be covered. Paid premiums are not refundable.

Offered schemes for local and international undergraduates, graduates and non-graduating students vary. The following table provides a summary of the coverage for each category.
