|Bachelor : Radiography in Diagnostics|
Duration of Programme
Additional Admission Requirements
National Senior Certificate (NSC) or equivalent qualification (certified).
M score of at least 30 points on the CUT scoring scale for the NSC examination.
For candidates who completed the NSC in 2008 and thereafter, CUT awards academic weights for achievement according to the following scoring scale:
Please note: A candidate must achieve a score of at least 3 (40 - 49%) in Life Orientation. Even if a higher mark is achieved in Life Orientation, the value will still only be calculated as 1.
In addition to the general admission requirements, a minimum mark is required:
If you meet the above requirements, but do not have an NSC certificate, submit your June exam results.
Applications will be considered between July and the last day of October.
Application procedure - all students must write NBT tests.
Radiographers are professionally trained to be part of the healthcare team and can work either in a private radiology practice or the government sector. Job opportunities are also available abroad after registration with the relevant professional boards. Alternatively, radiographers can work as application specialists, representatives in companies supplying imaging products, or pursue an academic or research career.

Work-integrated learning (WIL)
An important part of your learning experience will be the time spent in the workplace (clinical practice). From your second year of study, you will be expected to do workplace learning (WPL) at accredited radiology practices in the region. The coordinators for WPL in the radiography programme closely monitor this part of your learning experience. As a prerequisite of the Professional Board for Radiography and Clinical Technology (PBRCT) at the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) you should attain specific outcomes in the clinical environment to be able to register as a radiographer with the HPCSA.Most students are placed randomly at the following government radiology practices: Universitas-National hospital complex and Pelonomi hospital. Students placed at these practices can apply for a bursary or learnership from the Free State Department of Health (FSDoH) or their area of residence. Such a bursary will be awarded if the applicant complies with certain conditions as stipulated by the Department of Health (DoH). Thus, not all students placed at government radiology practice will necessarily receive a learnership while doing WPL. Kindly note that all radiography students are responsible for their transport between the university and the practices where they do their WPL. No transport will be supplied by the practices or the CUT.
