Application Guidelines

Applicants are required to apply only if they meet the minimum entry requirements. However, applicants must note that meeting the minimum entry requirements is not a guarantee for admission. Due to the limited number of places available, the final selection is made subject to the availability of places, academic results and other entry requirements where applicable.

Prospective students may check the website for programme information or visit the University campus in Palapye to seek facetoface career advice and complete applications.

Applicants must submit only one application. The application form allows an applicant to choose three (3) programmes. It is in the applicant’s best interest to seek advice about his or her programme choices prior to submitting an application since the order of programme choices affects an applicant’s chance of admission.

Change of programme choice

Applicants should note that a change of programme choice is possible but must be done within the application period. Therefore, applicants who decide to change the programme of study applied for may do so no later than the stated closing date of receiving applications.

Applicants are advised to apply caution when selecting a programme of study, that is when indicating a first, second, or third choice or making any other changes to the initial submitted application. Furthermore, applicants are advised to be realistic about whether they are likely to qualify for admission, and whether the chosen programme matches their interests and aptitude. 

Applicants are also encouraged to consult an Enrolment and Admissions or Programme Lecturer for career counseling to determine an appropriate career path and consequently an appropriate qualification.  

All requests for a change of programme should be done in writing and be emailed to
