Fee Payment Plans
- Traditional Payment Plan

Note that in the first semester only the Traditional Payment Plan is available for those students who require UOWD sponsored student visas.
Traditional Payment Plan
Fees can be paid by cash, cheque, or credit card. You must ensure all fees are paid in full before the start of the semester, according to the number of subjects to be taken. All payments for the semester must be made before the due date mentioned in the Academic Calendar.
Progress Payment Plan
Fees can be paid by cash, cheque or credit card in three instalments, as follows.
- 1st instalment – 50% of the total tuition fees for the semester.
- 2nd instalment – 25% of the total tuition fees for the semester.
- 3rd instalment – 25% of the total tuition fees for the semester.
The dates for payment of instalments will be advertised by the Finance Department before the start of each semester. If you elect to pay the fees under the Progress Payment Plan, you will be required to pay an additional charge of AED 420 per subject. Students who pay by post-dated cheques or give a credit card debit order for the remaining fee instalments are eligible to receive a discount of 50% (i.e. AED 210) on the additional fee paid per subject.
Students who default on any payment will automatically lose the privilege to continue with the Progress Payment Plan and will have to revert to the Traditional Payment Plan.
Executive Payment Plan
Fees can be paid by cash or cheque only. If you elect to pay your entire tuition fees for the degree program upfront, you can obtain a discount of 10% on the total cost.
If you wish to take up the UOWD Visa Sponsorship you should pay the tuition fees for the first semester as per the Traditional Payment Plan. Following initial enrolment, sponsored students can make use of the various payment plans.
