Qualification Structure

The National Diploma is a three-year, full-time, career-oriented qualification. After completing the National Diploma, the student may continue with a fourth year of study to obtain the Baccalaureus Technologiae (BTech) degree, subject to meeting specific programme requirements. A student who is already part of the active workforce and who possesses an M+3 qualification (or equivalent) may complete the BTech degree part-time over a two-year period (or over a one-year period in the case of the BTech: Public Management). Students also have the opportunity to enrol for the Magister Technologiae (MTech) and Doctor Technologiae (DTech) degrees (where applicable).

In the Department of Accounting and Auditing, students must first complete the two-year National Higher Certificate on a full-time basis before they may enrol for the National Diploma in their third year.
