Additional Admission Requirements

The minimum admission requirement for the Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology is an Advanced Diploma in Information Technology or equivalent qualification at NQF Level 7. A minimum average of 60% at the Advanced Diploma in Information Technology or a related NQF Level 7 qualification.

Career Opportunities

The primary purpose of the qualification is to enable working professionals to undertake advanced reflection and development by means of a systematic survey of current thinking, practice and research methods in an area of specialisation.  This qualification demands a high level of theoretical engagement and intellectual independence, as well as the ability to relate knowledge to a range of contexts in order to undertake professional or highly skilled work. The Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology will enable Information Technologists to continue with their studies with the aim to do research and study to higher qualifications such as a Masters and Doctoral qualification.

The proposed Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology is aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at learners from CUT who will progress from the Advanced Diploma in Information Technology and who wish to continue with their studies with the aim to do further research and study to higher qualifications before exiting in preparation for employment in the business and industry sector. The programme makes provision for graduates with equivalent qualifications who are working in the business and industry who wish to continue with further research and study to higher and postgraduate qualifications.
