Additional Admission Requirements

Any appropriate Bachelor’s degree at NQF Level 7 or an appropriate Advanced Diploma at NQF 7. However, experienced people without the minimum academic requirement can gain admission through a rigorous process of recognition of prior learning (RPL).

Credit transfer policy

In accordance with CUT’s RPL policy (8.2d), a maximum of 39% credit transfers can be granted to a candidate because the modules are pitched on exit level of NQF level 8.

The PGDip (Project Management) meets the entry requirements of a cognate Master’s degree for example, the CUT’s envisaged MPhil (Management science): Project Management and Master of Management Science in Entrepreneurial Management: Project Management.

Career Opportunities

The qualification strategically prepares students for their next career moves. This qualification is strategic in nature because it enables you to use specialist project management competencies in all management and leadership roles, in all economic. The programme equips individuals to become career project managers. Holders will also be able to function as managers in charge of project management offices or divisions.

Project management is a scarce skill in South Africa and the demand for project management competencies is growing daily. Also, there is a need for skilled project managers at middle and higher levels in all types and sizes of private and public organisations – including but not limited to SMMEs, NGOs, large and multinational companies. The program is designed to satisfy these needs.
