Meet the Basic University Admission Requirements

In South Africa, public universities generally require prospective students to meet certain entry requirements before being considered for acceptance. Entry requirements may vary slightly from university to university, but generally include the following:

  1. National Senior Certificate (NSC) or equivalent qualification: Prospective students must have completed Grade 12 or an equivalent qualification, such as a Senior Certificate or National Certificate Vocational (NCV), and obtained a minimum pass mark in certain subjects.
  2. Minimum admission point score (APS): Each institution sets its own minimum APS, which is calculated based on a student’s NSC results. The APS is used to determine whether a student meets the minimum requirements for a particular degree programme.
  3. Language proficiency: Many universities require students to have a certain level of proficiency in English or another language, depending on the medium of instruction for the chosen programme.
  4. Application fee: Prospective students may be required to pay a non-refundable application fee when submitting their application.
  5. Additional requirements: Some programmes may have additional requirements, such as the submission of a portfolio or the completion of an entrance test.

University Admission

It’s important to note that meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance into a particular programme. Universities may have a limited number of spaces available and may use additional criteria to select students. Prospective students should consult the admission requirements for the specific university and programme they are interested in to ensure they meet all the necessary criteria.

    Thank you that I as CEO of the NID. Can join your eplatform. Institute for the Deaf are the ONLY organisation that deliver TRAINING, CARE and SUPPORT SERVICES from the cradle to the grave to persons with a diversity of hearing loss.
    NID is a NPO and a Private registrated FET. Government really deserve a glass of vinegar for not acknodging the human rights of SERVICES to persons with hearing loss. That is why there was a disaster with the incompetent sign language interpreter at Madiba’s funeral. Please visit our website at or email me at
    Kind regards
