Additional Admission Requirements

A Baccalaureus Technologiae degree or equivalent qualification in the cognate field, with relevant instructional offerings.

Additional Admission requirements:

Due to a limited number of students than can be accommodated, applicants with an equivalent qualification must have at least two years working experience in the public sector.  Only limited candidates (a total of 10%) with equivalent qualifications would be admitted per annum. 

Candidates with equivalent qualifications will be interviewed and only the equivalent candidates who were interviewed have to complete the recognition op prior learning template before they will be admitted.  The recognition of prior learning process is a time consuming process, therefore candidates with equivalent qualifications must apply as soon as the admission process opens for the next year.
