Qualifications in higher education have a high social and economic value. They represent significant learning achievement. Different qualifications have different intellectual demands and this is reflected in the different requirements for admission to the Higher Certificate, the Diploma and the Bachelor's Degree.
The minimum requirements for a national diploma are therefore particularly distinctive. We set the bar high enough to fairly reflect the cognitive demands that will be made on diploma students to admit students who are likely to succeed in their studies given good teaching, good resources and appropriate academic and other support.
However, we do not make that decision alone, you make the decision together with us, because we regard you as an adult student responsible for own learning and commitment.
The learning assumed in place is Communication at NQF Level 4 and Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 4.
If you do not have the basics* in place, write us a motivational letter why you will be the right candidate for our EETDP learning programme. Include in your motivation your present qualifications, achievements and, if applicable, your work experience (whatever that work experience is). Just a one pager, written in conversation style English.
*The learning assumed to be in place is an Further Education and Training Certificate (FETC) or RPL equivalent
