Flutterwave has introduced Tuition, a payment solution that enables international students across Africa to pay tuition fees in their local currencies. This is all desirable as the world and Africa pushes towards de-dollarising international payment systems.

This resolves the daunting age-long task of paying school fees that students studying abroad face – from dealing with foreign currencies and exchange rates to navigating unfamiliar payment systems that are expensive, inaccessible, and sometimes unsafe.

International students can now use Tuition to pay their tuition in their home currencies within 48 hours, saving them the time and stress of having to worry about missing the deadline. This gives them more time to concentrate on their studies. For African students studying anywhere—on the continent or abroad—tuition makes payments more straightforward.

To improve the entire experience of paying for school fees for their students, institutions from all over the world can join Tuition. Students will be able to use the platform to pay their tuition fees once the institution has been properly onboarded.

Transparency is a key component of Tuition, therefore there will be no hidden costs when calculating the breakdown of the school fees in your local currency. Additionally, Tuition has no dollar restriction and integrates with all major payment processors so that students may pay their fees without worrying about their cards not working.
