INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

A Certified copy of SAQA Certificate of Evaluation of the applicant’s International qualifications is required for acceptance into AFDA programmes. This certificate is obtained from the South African Qualifications Authority – SAQA (www.saqa.org.za). The NQF Act, 67 of 2008, gives SAQA the mandate to, “with respect to International qualifications, provide an evaluation and advisory service consistent with this Act”.

SAQA fulfils this mandate through the Directorate of International Qualifications Evaluations and Advisory Services (DFQEAS). The work of DFQEAS helps to clarify the meaning of International qualifications for local use and links those qualifications to NQF levels so that the holders of

International qualifications can take up work and study opportunities in South Africa.
