University of the Western Cape (UWC) Undergraduate Requirement
Our University is committed to provide access to students who have the potential to succeed. However, the University does not compromise on the standards of excellence required to obtain certificates, diplomas or degrees. A flexible admission system and equitable selection procedures are used to ensure that students from all sectors of the community have a fair chance to gain access to university studies.
In order to study at the University of the Western Cape the candidate must have met the following criteria:
1. The National Senior Certificate (NSC) required for Degree, Diploma or Higher Certificate study, as appropriate.
2. A minimum number of points calculated on the university’s points system.
3. A pass at the required level in each of the subjects specified for the programme into which the candidate seeks admission.
Where there is competition for places in any particular programme – that is, where the number of qualified candidates exceeds the number of available places – selection will take place on the basis of criteria that have been determined by faculty selection committees.
