that follow, there are over 730 programmes, grouped under 25 career directions. Pages 16 and 17 list career directions in terms of
suitability for the four working personality types. If you do not know what you want to study, it might help you to work through
the "Self-assessment quiz" |

the "Index" and then go directly to the page/s specified. Within each career direction, programmes are grouped according to the
level of entry. The three main levels of entry are: Diploma study Degree study Post-Diploma study

Within each category, the programmes are listed in alphabetical order by programme name.
What the programme list shows you
MOST programmes will consider all applications received before 31 October. If your
application is received after that date, the programme will only be able to consider you if there are still places available.
However, some programmes close much earlier than 31 October, because time is needed to carry out interviews and assessment
tests. Most Medical programmes close early for this reason. If your application is late, it may not be possible to consider you.
The selection status you are given will show if a programme was already closed when we received your application. The most
popular programmes will not consider applications received after the closing date. Make sure that your application form AND fee
reach the CAO before the closing date shown. The earlier we get it, the easier it will be for us to sort out any queries in time
for your application to be considered.
The numbers printed in red give you the minimum points required for that programme. The first
set of points relate to the NSC and the second set are for the Senior Certificate. Meeting the minimum points requirement does
not guarantee that you will be offered a place. You can calculate your total points from your latest examination results by
adding up the points for each subject as follows:
|NSC Points are calculated on six subjects, excluding Life Orientation. |
