Mpumalanga University Undergraduate Application Form
(This qualification has been accredited and is awaiting registration with SAQA)
A three-year full time programme offered at the Mbombela Campus.
NQF level 6
This Diploma is designed to enhance the supply of graduates with a sound understanding of relevant theory associated with nature conservation and a well-developed ability to apply the theory in practice.
The programme includes foundational subjects such as animal and plant science and soil science, management courses including accounting and human resource management, and major subjects including conservation ecology, environmental management and resource management. The third year is a year of work integrated learning during which students will be placed in the industry.
Our graduates will be able to perform competently, independently, creatively and innovatively to assist nature conservation in the region and more widely. They will be good communicators who are able to innovate by identifying opportunities within the conservation arena. Managerial skills will be learnt so that graduates can lead a team effectively.
By allowing students to focus on a particular aspect of conservation such as the conservation of birds or endangered flora, our graduates will have a competitive edge over those from other similar programmes.
Application must be made on the prescribed forms and must reach the University of Mpumalanga (UMP) before the closing date. Forms are obtainable electronically from www.ump.ac.za or from the following UMP Campuses and sites of delivery.
