• Students with an APS score for Mathematics below 4, SG Mathematics below a D or Mathematical Literacy will only be considered after completion of the Mathematics for Diploma students offered by the Faculty of Science at the University of Johannesburg to all second- and third-year Diploma students interested in pursuing further studies at the University.

• A 55%+ average of 55% of Financial Accounting and Cost & Financial Management (Note: Preliminary selection of students applying in their third year will be based on second year results).
A strict selection process is followed and meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the programme as numerous applications are received annually that exceed the minimum requirements. All applicants will be subjected to a selection process as determined by the Department of Accountancy.
