Study place for transferring students may be limited for reasons of capacity.
To qualify for admission as a transferring undergraduate, an applicant who has studied at another university must have at least:
- Full or mature age matriculation exemption (see the Matriculation Board)
- The minimum Faculty Point score currently required for admission to the programme
- Met the faculty's minimum re-admission requirements on the basis of the previous year's performance. (A transferring student from another higher education institution must have an appropriate successful record from the previous institution.)
You must submit an academic transcript as soon as this is available.
It is unlikely that you will be accepted if you have not taken a full course load and passed with an average of at least 60%. Your personal circumstances and the degree requirements may also be considered by the dean of the faculty in deciding admission.
An application can only be considered once your academic transcript has been received by the Undergraduate Office.
Transferring students, if accepted, may receive, for courses passed, credit or exemption or both provided these are recognised as equivalent to courses offered at UCT and are accepted by the deputy dean for the purpose of the programmes students wish to take.
Transferring students will be required to complete the remaining courses presented for the degree at this university over a period of not less than two years.
