Admission Requirements for the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) in 2024

  • The University of KwaZulu-2024 Natal’s Admission Requirements is listed below. Before submitting an application, applicants must carefully read the instructions.
  • Before applying, candidates must meet the requirements listed below for admission to the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

Here are the 2024 requirements for UKZN admission.

Requirements for Undergraduate Admission

programs for undergraduates

  • 1. Senior Certificate or the National Senior Certificate
  • 1.1 Candidates for undergraduate degree programs must hold a Senior Certificate with an endorsement or a National Senior Certificate for Degree Studies (NSC-Deg).
  • 1.2 Candidates for undergraduate diploma programs must hold a Senior Certificate or National Senior Certificate for Diploma Studies (NSC-Dip).

Instructional Format

  • The College of Law requires a pass in English Home Language at Level 5 or English as FAL on Level 6. English is the medium of instruction at UKZN, and UKZN requires a pass in English (Home Language or First Additional Language (FAL)) at Level 4 (50 percent or above). A lower English proficiency score may be acceptable for admission to programs leading to diplomas or alternative access. A passing grade in English at First or Second Language HG E is necessary for the Senior Certificate.

Life Guidance

  • A Level 4 pass in Life orientation is required for degree programs at UKZN. A Level 3 pass may be taken into account by Access Programs.

The minimal composite grade point average

  • For each program (NSC-Deg and Senior Certificate), a minimal composite Academic Performance Score has been established as a requirement for enrollment. However, this is the minimum score needed to be taken into consideration, so students who achieve this minimum are not guaranteed admission. A program’s selection process works from the top down until all of the openings in that program have been filled. Candidates are ranked according to APS. The demand for spots is high, so it is unlikely that applicants who do not meet the APS for a given program will be taken into consideration.

Subject requirements and performance standards

  • For admission to UKZN programs, additional subject requirements and minimum levels of performance in particular subjects are established. Applicants who did not include the appropriate subjects in their NSC-Deg or who did not meet the necessary standards of performance in a number of required subjects for admission to a program will not be taken into consideration.
  • To help you with your application, the tabulations include the Central Applications Office (CAO) program codes. There are six letters in the code. The University of KwaZulu-name Natal’s is abbreviated with the first two letters, KN. The UKZN campus where the program is offered is indicated by the third letter: E for Edgewood, H for Howard College, M for the Medical School, P for Pietermaritzburg, and W for Westville. The specific program is identified by the final three letters. Keep a close eye on the campuses where the programs are offered.
