DUT How To Apply

DUT  Application and Acceptance Process

Prospective DUT students should apply through the Central Application Office, or CAO. A matric pupil need only fill out the CAO application form and select which tertiary education institutes they want to apply to. The CAO then distributes their application and later lets the pupil know which institutions accepted him or her. Applications through the CAO open on 01 March and close on 31 October . Pupils can apply online and find more information at the following link.

When should I apply?

Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible in the application cycle. You can find DUT’s online application form here.

South Africans learners wishing to apply online will need a working email address and an ID number. Foreign learners wishing to apply will need to have their passport number.

Application Fees:

Applicants are required to pay an application fee. There is an accompanying application fee of R200.00 for on time applications and R400.00 for late applications.

For more information, please visit DUT’s Fees booklet here.

Submitting of Results and Documents:

School learners must ensure that all examination results from Grade 11 until September of Grade 12 are submitted. Failure to do such may result in delays within the student’s application process. You might find that you applied early in Grade 12 and thus only sent in your final Grade 11 results. If this is true, as the year progresses and you receive more results keep sending them through to DUT, that way they will have all your results by the time finals come around.

Transferring students should too ensure that all transcripts and academic records are submitted as early as possible as well as that a final transcript of current studies being undertaken reaches the Admissions Office as soon as possible after receipt.

Once you have applied, keep a look out for your acceptance and/or provisional acceptance letter. You are encouraged to monitor your application status at all times, and can do so here.

DUT Admission Requirements

The General Admission Rules stipulate inter alia:

(i) the overall minimum admission requirements of the University which must be met to enable a person to be considered for registration as a 5 student for study towards any certificate, diploma or degree, offered by the University or for non-certificate, diploma or degree purposes;

(ii) the minimum and maximum durations of study pertaining to certificate, diploma or degree study at the University;

(iii) the conditions under which the University will grant exemption from registration for a subject(s) which a student has already passed at any other equivalent educational institution and/or in terms of the University’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Policy;

(iv)the conditions under which the University will grant conditional or unconditional conferment of status of the equivalent pre-requisite qualification, for the purposes of registration for a higher qualification and/or advanced standing in terms of the University’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Policy;

(v) that the University may refuse the admission or readmission of any person as a student of the University. In so doing the University will stipulate the conditions which a person must meet in order to be considered for admission or readmission; and

(vi)that the medium of instruction is English.

(vii) University practice regarding credential evaluation will in the first instance take the form of conferment of status. That is, the academic department, as the discipline experts evaluate the applicant’s qualification/s for equivalence to the entrance requirement/s of the qualification applied for. The advice of the International Office and that of the Registrar’s Office may be sought in this evaluation. Only if an academic department is not able to obtain sufficient information to evaluate the applicant’s qualification for conferment of status, should a SAQA evaluation be sought.

Both of these processes ie conferment of status and the SAQA, assess the level of the Qualification and not the authenticity of the Qualification/ certificate. The authenticity of the qualification/certificate will have to be evaluated by the official of the University involved with academic registration
