Please note that the below admission requirements are subject to change pending selection and possible faculty-specific requirements.
Study information is subject to change and is a summary of the general fields of study. This information was compiled for introduction and orientation purposes and the North-West University accepts no liability for inaccuracies that may occur in this guide. The official yearbook of the University must in all cases be consulted during the process of compiling a programme for a specific field of study. The appropriate yearbook is available on request at: firstname.lastname@example.org / 018 285 4320 / email@example.com.
Please note that, owing to specific capacity constraints, the University reserves the right to select candidates for admission to certain fields of study. This means that prospective students who comply with the minimum requirements will not automatically be admitted to the courses in question. Because of the capacity limitations and the high demand from students for admission to particular fields of study, students will be selected on the basis of their Grade 12 results for admission to these fields.
In order to ensure that a sufficient percentage of the credit load of the programme for which the student is registered is completed within the maximum duration allowed for the study –
a contact student must obtain at least 66% of the total credits that is required for the programme up to the historic year level for which the student is registered, and
a distance student must obtain at least 66% of the total credits that is required for the curriculum up to the historic year level for which the student is registered.
A student who fails to comply with the progression requirements provided for in rule 1.16.1 does not automatically qualify to continue study in the programme concerned.
After every examination period the executive dean concerned must, in consultation with the faculty management committee or other faculty structure concerned, review the academic records of all students to determine the students’ compliance with the progression requirements.
Should the executive dean concerned decide to terminate a student’s registration due to failure to comply with the progression requirements, the student may, within ten days of the date of such decision, submit to the faculty manager a motivated request in the prescribed form to be readmitted to the study.
The executive dean’s decision to grant or refuse a request for readmission submitted in terms of rule is final.
The executive dean reports all the decisions taken in terms of this rule to the registrar.
