SENIOR CERTIFICATE

Minimum entry requirements for applicants who have written Senior Certificate are shaded turquoise.

Example: Matric Exemption with Maths `D` HG/`A` SG and Agric Sci or Biol or Phys Sci `E` HG/`C` SG.

This means that your Senior Certificate or Statement of Symbols must state that you have been granted an "endorsement". In addition, you must have passed Mathematics with `D` on Higher Grade or `A` on Standard Grade and at least one of Agricultural Science, Biology or Physical Science with `E` on Higher Grade or `C` on Standard Grade.

If you qualify for an Ordinary Conditional Exemption you could be considered for programmes specifying "Matric Exemption" provided the other subject requirements are met.

Mature Age applicants (over 23 years of age) and those seeking admission on the basis of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or foreign qualifications should consult the institution.


POST-DIPLOMA STUDY (FOR PEOPLE WITH AN N DIP)


If you are still at school you should NOT apply for B Tech programmes requiring an N Dip or equivalent. You must apply for the N Dip in the fi rst instance.

The time of year the programme starts. There are two entry terms: `1`- entry at the beginning of the year/first term, January and February `3`- entry in the second semester/third term, July
