UWC’s Points System
For admission to degree and diploma programmes, UWC uses a weighted system for calculating points. In order to be admitted to degree studies the candidate should have attained the required points score as determined per programme. (See specific courses.)
&nbsp
In addition to the general criteria for admission to university mentioned above, additional programme specific criteria must be met to qualify for admission to particular study programmes. These are detailed in the faculty chapters.
*All applicants will be required to write the National Benchmark Test (NBT). This test serves as a placement measure and assists faculties in determining the required academic support.
Alternate Admission Requirements for 2016
Applicants who do not meet the admissions requirements of the university may still be admitted to studies. The Senate of the universities have the right to admit students using other criteria. This is a way of meeting the needs of two other groups of people: those who have done well in their exams, but whose subject choices prevent them from qualifying for university, and those who have left school some time ago and have worked at other things, and who can show that they are ready for university studies.
Senate Discretionary Admissions
The university Senate may admit students without an endorsement or matric exemption if it considers them suitably qualified. They are admitted with a conditional exemption only after they have successfully completed a selection process which may include a personal interview, tests of written and oral communication and numeracy, and other means of determining ability. Students in this category are then given additional support. After a successful first year, a full exemption is awarded and the student then continues with studies.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
This is the formal acknowledgement of the knowledge and capabilities people have acquired as a result of prior learning – through formal and informal means including study, work or life experience. Contact the Division of Lifelong Learning for more information.
Foundational Support Programmes
In some cases students will be admitted to the university only if they enrol for the foundation programmes. The support offered in these programmes consists of a lighter course load and intensive assistance in helping students gain the skills needed for successful university study. Foundational programmes offered are: Humanities, for students in the Arts and Law faculties; Commerce, for students in the Economic and Management Sciences Faculty; programmes for students in the Science Faculty; some programmes in the Community and Health Sciences Faculty and the Education Faculty.
Who to Contact to Study at UWC
The Student Enrolment Management Unit (SEMU) is your first port of call when you want information about studying at UWC. The SEMU staff will ensure that you get all the information you need: information about UWC’s admission requirements, the many fields of study that are on offer, bursaries, financial aid, loans – and the differences between them, residential facilities and the many sports and cultural opportunities that are available to UWC students. You are welcome to mail us, give us a call or visit our offices. We will refer you to a specific faculty or department should it be necessary.
SEMU regularly addresses Grade 11 and 12 learners about studying at UWC. To have us visit your school, simply contact the SEMU office.
SEMU offers free career guidance using the PACE self-exploratory computer-based questionnaire. The completion of the questionnaire is followed by a counselling session with a skilled career counsellor. This is a lovely opportunity for a Grade 11 or 12 learner to speak with a talented educator about future career decisions.
We assist students with their hard copy or online applications to UWC, making sure that their forms are completed correctly, as required.
Finally, SEMU conducts admissions tests for prospective students who don`t meet the UWC entrance requirement. For more information about the admissions tests visit our website.
