Applications received after the end of September will be considered at the discretion of the Registrar.

Admission requirements

The normal admission requirement for any undergraduate degree at Rhodes University is a National Senior Certificate with endorsement for degree studies. In addition, each faculty has laid down its own minimum requirements for admission.

All students intending to register as candidates for degrees must produce their National Senior Certificates or equivalent certificates either before, or as soon as possible after, entering the University. Failure to do so will result in a change in registration status.

Students who have attended courses at another university should obtain a transcript and, if they attended another university in the Republic, a certificate of good conduct from the university previously attended. Application for exemption for courses completed at another university should be directed to the Student Bureau with the initial application to the University, and must be accompanied by brief course outlines.
