TUITION

Self-tuition is currently given credence by the Institute. The Institute, however, sometimes makes it a point to ensure quality education for adequate preparation for examinations and hence sees the need to run tutorials for students who have challenges with courses. These tutorials are largely held only on weekends for the benefit of all categories of students.
