University of Johannesburg Courses and Requirements

To be able to gain access to a faculty and specific programmes, applicants are required to have the appropriate combination of recognised National Senior Certificate (NSC) subjects as well as certain levels of achievement in these subjects as set out in the 2016 UJ Undergraduate Prospectus < Click here to view the 2017 UJ Undergraduate Prospectus > 
Compliance with the minimum requirements does not guarantee a place as the University has a specific number of places as approved by the Department of Higher Education and Training for new undergraduate first years.
Conditional admission is based on the final Grade 11 results and final admission is based on the final Grade 12 results.
Applicants must meet the criteria set by the relevant faculty with regard to their chosen academic subjects. All additional criteria for specific learning area specialisations, and/or specific subject methodologies have to be met as well. Special admission procedures for programmes include assessment for NBT (National Benchmark Test), guidance, evaluation and placement purposes, interviews and submission of portfolios of work.
Applicants may also be expected to write an admission or placement test for certain qualifications as per faculty requirements.
 
How to determine your Admission Point Score (APS):
A new Admission Point Score (APS) explained below has been developed for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) and the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) based on the Achievement Rating of each subject. The APS is basically the sum of the achievement ratings of the seven school subjects, keeping in mind that the performance rating achieved for Life Orientation must be divided by 2.
Admission requirements for students obtaining the National Senior Certificate (NSC) / Independent Examinations Board (IEB) in 2013 or thereafter:
 

APS National International
NSC SC HG (M-Score) SC SG (M-Score) IEB HIGSE / NSSC (HL) IGCSE / NSSC (OL) AS Levels A Levels IB (HL) IB (SL)

What is a degree?
Degrees are traditionally offered at Universities and consist of subjects from various fields, enabling you to tailor your studies to your own interests and career plans. Usually this type of qualification has to be followed by additional postgraduate studies in order to prepare you for a career in a specific field. A general curriculum may be followed in order to obtain a Bachelor of Arts (BA), or Bachelor of Science (BSc), or Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree. A degree has a more theoretical and a less practical basis.
What is a BTech degree?
The BTech degree is generally practice or career oriented, as opposed to academically oriented. The degree is obtained after four years of study, and is usually offered as a one year programme, following completion of a relevant three-year National Diploma.
What is a National Diploma?
A National Diploma is career-focused and directly linked to a specific career field. So, for example, if you study a National Diploma in Hospitality Management you will have the option of becoming a Hotel Manager, Food and Beverage Manager or Executive Chef depending on what you specialise in. With a National Diploma you are required, before you graduate, to do a period of in-service training at an accredited company where you will get hands-on experience to add to your theoretical knowledge.
What is a Certificate?
An academic institution will issue students with a certificate as proof of the successful completion of a certificate course. The hierarchy is first school, then a certificate, then diploma and then a degree as the top qualification. Certificates are therefore just below a diploma qualification, but above a high school education. The entry qualifications for a certificate course may vary between institutions. While some course providers may ask for a Grade 12 certificate, others will let students in with Grade 10 as their highest qualification. Certificate courses are usually shorter courses, in comparison to diplomas and degrees. Certificates are full qualifications, as seen in comparison to short courses.
