​​​​​​Our Orange Carpet​


What is the UJ Orange Carpet Rewards Programme?

This campaign has been specially put together for Grade 12 learners that have excelled in the past. It fast-tracks their application to ensure early conditional acceptance into UJ before other learners even get to submit their application forms. And of course there are some VERY special benefits!

    • Your paper-based application fee is waived.
    • An Orange Carpet candidate saves R1 040 by not having to pay registration fee and the ICT levy at registration in January. 
    • The candidate’s first minimum tuition payment at registration is settled by the candidate’s merit bursary which is allocated at the end of April/beginning of May and is based on their AP Score.
    • You will receive a merit bursary according to your APS for the first year of study. The better you do in your Grade 12 results the bigger your merit bursary will be.
    • An APS of more than 42 on your Grade 12 results gives you an extra R5 485 bursary.
    • UJ will give you a R2 000 voucher which you can use to purchase textbooks or towards the purchase of a tablet with one of UJ’s main suppliers.
    • You will be guaranteed accommodation in a UJ residence if you plan to live on campus and have applied to a UJ residence and paid the application fee. 
    • You are eligible for a sport bursary if you have achieved at provincial or a higher level.
    • And many more on-campus benefits like career counselling, somatology specials, invitations to
      exclusive events and into the VIP sections at UJ sporting events!

How to qualify for the Campaign?​​

    • ​​Achieve an APS of 37 or higher in your Grade 11 final report (but not lower than Level 6 in every subject).
    • Maintain the same results in Grade 12.
    • Meet the specific subject requirements for the programme you are interested in.
    • Make sure you apply on time to UJ – the deadline is the end of September 2016.
    • Remember, depending on your AP Score, your Orange Carpet merit bursary may not cover your full first-year tuition fees so candidates need to ensure that they apply for any other funding and NSFAS on time, in their Grade 12 year.
    • Only students who are entering for first time undergraduate studies are eligible for the orange carpet benefits. Students who have already undertaken studies at UJ or elsewhere are not eligible.​
