Why do we charge an enrollment and registration fee? Though the Institute does not charge tuition fees and exam fees, our registrar individually assesses, records and approves each application. This manual work is needed to legitimize your enrollment in the Institute and document your information for verification purposes of future employers and other interested parties post graduation. Part of the proceeds of our fees also allow us to provide financial aid and scholarships to students who need it the most. Application assessment begins once you have completed the form below with the corresponding requirements and have sent the enrollment fee. 

The Institute offers a 5% reduction (effective 1 June 2023) in enrollment fees for students applying from the following countries we serve: Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Jamaica, Commonwealth of Dominica, Belize, Guyana, Barbados, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, Bahamas, Saint Lucia, Grenada, Dominican Republic, Trinidad & Tobago, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda and all dependent territories of France, U.K., Netherlands and U.S.A. in the Caribbean region.

To further support students from Least Developed Countries (LDC), the Institute provides a 10% reduction (effective 1 June 2023) on the one-time enrollment fee for those applying from the current list of LDC's according to the United Nations. Please confirm if your country is on the list to avail of this reduced fee. The countries of Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos and Haiti are on this list.
