University of South Africa Bridging Courses

Where to do Bridging Courses

IMPORTANT NOTE:   A UNIVERSITY BRIDGING course does NOT teach you a subject from the start (eg. Core Mathematics or Physical Science from Grade 10 level). You should already have those subjects even if your marks are not up to the required level.
If you do not have the subjects and you want to add them to your qualifications CLICK HERE


Various Universities and Universities of Technology offer bridging courses to assist students who do not quite meet the requirements for a recognised degree or qualification. These options have various names, depending on the institution or faculty.

Some Bridging Courses need to be completed before starting the actual course:

  • University Preparation Programme (UFS)
  • Foundation (UCT)
  • Access  (MUT) (WSU)

Some Bridging Courses extend the course by one year:

  • Extended (several – see below) Also called EDP (UL) and ECP (CUT)

Some Bridging Courses are focused on preparing students for technical courses:

  • ASPECT (UCT)
  • PRE-TECH (MUT)
  • ENGAGE (Engineering Augmented Degree Programme). (UJ)
  • UNITE (UKZN)

Things to keep in mind:

  • With Extended Courses, the initial entry requirements are slightly less and students need to complete an extra  year of study.
  • Universities still insist on subject requirements for the course, for example Mathematics or Physical Science.
  • Most universities also conduct a test, generally called the National Benchmark Test (NBT).
  • Some universities do not allow you to apply for an Extended Course but offer it if the results of their test show that you would benefit.
  • Adhering to the rules that apply will save you time. It is very useful to download or collect the Prospectuses or Information brochures that every university offers, to make sure there are no changes, every year.

These are the institutions and courses where these options apply:

The first year is a foundation phase, and the following two years are the post foundation phase. Each year is divided into two semesters of two modules each.
Real World Learning is the integration of theory and industry (practise) and is extremely important as:

  • It prepares students for professional life
  • It actively aids in Problem Based Learning, giving students the opportunity to test theories and techniques in real life situations
  • It provides students with contacts and assists in networking
  • Students are exposed to working life in a top, internationally recognised, learning hotel, such as MyPond Hotel or another partnering institution.

Stenden South Africa offers a three year Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Hospitality Management, and is the only institution in South Africa to do so. Students will experience a critical practical learning experience in their 1st, 2nd and 3rd year of study, by working at a hotel learning facility such as My Pond Hotel for a number of weeks.

First Year

Hospitality Operations (HO), Guest Experience (GE), Resources, and Real World Learning (RWL).
In their first year of study, students start at an operational level, working in the kitchen production process, familiarising themselves with essential practical skills such as:

  • The basics of hygiene and cooking and cutting techniques
  • Waiting techniques
  • Learning about wine
  • Learning about nutrition
  • Cost calculations
  • Operating the reception and housekeeping departments

Second Year

The second year focuses on the operational functions of a hotel. This is studied from 3 perspectives:

  • Operations Design: discusses how to set up operations which support the service concept of a company.
  • Hospitality Operations Performance: the day to day management of operations.
  • Hospitality Operations Environment: the context in which operations take place, with an emphasis on financial and legal issues.

To support the students further development as a future manager, there is also a choice of Minor specialization. Students may chose from the following Minors:

  • Event Management 1
  • Lodge Management
  • Change and Innovation
  • Online Revenue Management
  • Wildlife Management
  • International Human Resource Management

Third Year

Strategic Semester (2 modules)
Module 1: Strategic Hospitality Management (8 weeks) – this module challenges students on a strategic level. It enables them to understand why companies adopt certain strategies and make strategic decisions. The module is known as a “capstone module” which essentially means it ties together all previous subjects from finance and economics to human resource management and marketing.
Module 2: Psychology of Management and Organisations (4 weeks) – this component of the third year allows students to understand the psychology behind management. It enables students to understand what motivates employees and managers while looking at theory related to teamwork, cohesion, staff satisfaction and general Human Resource Management.
Real World Learning (4 weeks): the final component of the third year involves the pratical component of the module whereby students take on the role of a manager within the MyPond learning hotel. Students will be given full responsibility of a chosen department and work in conjunction with management in order to ensure the hotel is run as efficiently as possible. Students are exposed to the strategic nature of runnning a live hotel.

Open Distance Learning (ODL) is a different way of learning

ODL is a different way of learning… there is a physical distance between you and your university. For most of us, this means that our previous learning experiences will not have prepared us for the Unisa study journey. In distance learning, YOU are responsible for your studies. You don’t attend daily lectures. You learn from a distance and you connect to the university mostly via the internet.
But this doesn’t mean that you are on your own. Unisa has a number of support services for our students – from tutorial support and counselling, to online tools. The “distance” in distance learning means that most of your interactions with Unisa will take place at a distance – mostly in digital format.

Prepare for Open Distance Learning (ODL)

How ready are you for ODL?

Many of us don’t know what it’s really like to study through distance learning, because most of our schooling and post-school education was completed through contact or face-to-face learning. We have developed this “readiness tool” to help you assess how ready you are for distance learning. It won’t take much of your time and is easy to complete, so try it!
