Tuition and Fees

Schooling is a benefit that KAUST provides for the eligible children of faculty, staff and postgraduate students. Eligible parents are therefore not required to pay the fees outlined below for their children.


A limited number of KAUST business partners and service providers have staff who are residents of the KAUST community. Their resident children are eligible to apply for TKS but fees apply. Fees are paid per semester by the individual or through agreements with business partners and service providers.

THE FOLLOWING ANNUAL FEES APPLY FOR NEW ENROLLMENTS. (FEES ARE QUOTED IN US DOLLARS AND EXCLUDE 15% VAT)
