APPLYING AT THE JOHANNESBURG BUSINESS SCHOOL – UNDERGRADUATE

To be able to gain access to a Johannesburg Business School and to a specific undergraduate programme, applicants are required to have the appropriate combination of recognised National Senior Certificate (NSC) or Independent Examinations Board (IEB) subjects as well as certain levels of achievement in these subjects as set out in this prospectus.

Learners who have not written the National Senior Certificate or Independent Examinations Board final examinations, but fall in the categories listed below will be referred to the College of Business and Economics for faculty-specific selection:

  • ACE School of Tomorrow,
  • National Certificate Vocational (NCV) NASCA, ASC
  • N3/N4/N5/N6 results, and
  • Any other final school-leaving certificates not aforementioned.

 

Note: Compliance with the minimum requirements does not guarantee a place as the University has a specific number of places as approved by the Department of Higher Education and Training for new undergraduate first years.

 

Conditional admission is based on the final Grade 11 results. Final admission is based on the final Grade 12 results. The earlier you apply, the more likely it is that you will be accepted into a UJ Residence. Only once you have applied and you have your reference/ student number will you be able to investigate bursaries that may cover your studies.
