Entry Requirements for Universities in South Africa
Entry requirements to South African universities depend on the particular school and type of program you wish to study. South African universities generally have an online application form which is easy to fill out in order to start the enrollment process.
It is, however, important to note that non-South African applicants must meet the requirements of matriculation exemption. This can usually be achieved by obtaining a secondary-school diploma with good marks and scoring well on any standardized tests offered in your home country.
You may also have to prove your English language skills, as most South African universities conduct their courses in English. International students from a non-English speaking country can prove their proficiency through a good score on the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System).
Be aware than universities receive many applications throughout the year so it is important that you submit your application before deadlines and that you are submitting the correct documents.
