A potential student should be in possession of an acceptable Baccalaureus degree qualification on NQF level 7 with Industrial Psychology as a major module (i.e. Industrial Psychology1, 2 and 3), or the equivalent thereof. An average of 70% for all Industrial Psychology modules will allow a potential student to apply for the honours programme. Applicants will undergo an assessment as part of the selection process. The top ranked applicants will be selected to register for the BComHons (Industrial Psychology) degree in accordance to the University’s Enrolment Plan. Exposure to a formal research module at undergraduate level is essential. Exposure to a formal module(s) in Human Resource Management and/or Psychology and/or Business Management will be a recommendation.

Since only a limited number of students can be accommodated annually, applicants will be subjected to a selection process. The Dean of the College of Business and Economics may refuse a student admission to the honours qualification if he/she is of the opinion that the student’s academic background is inadequate.
