Must I apply for a Student Visa, if I'm not a South African resident?
Students who DO NOT have South African residency must obtain a student visa. Silwood will assist all accepted students in obtaining their student visa and we recommend when applying for this, you apply early in the year as this is a lengthily process, and you obtain a three-year student visa. You will be required to supply us with a certified copy of your visa once obtained. Foreign applications close at the end of September each year.

We have an annual price increase on fees of never more than 10% each year. The fees will be set in early November each year and are based on numerous factors, including the Consumer Price Index. Our fees are set for the 3-year qualification and are weighted on a decreasing scale, as 1st year is full-time at the school.
