Advanced diploma applications

Nelson Mandela University students who are currently completing a three-year Diploma (Dip) qualification and would like to apply to pursue their Advanced Diploma (AdvDip) in the same field of study here next year, need to complete an online application form. Your completed application form must be submitted online to the Admissions Office on or before 3 August 2020 (no supporting documentation required). Please also review the faculty prospectus for the admission requirements related to your field of study prior to applying. Late applications may be considered after this date, if there is still space available in the course you wish to apply for, and on academic merit until 30 September 2020.

In addition, places in some qualifications are limited, and it is therefore in your best interest to submit your online application form and ALL supporting documentation as soon as possible. PLEASE NOTE: Advanced Diploma (AdvDip) qualifications are listed under the ‘Undergraduate’ tab on the online application system and not under the Postgraduate tab. Before completing an application form, please take note of the minimum admission requirements for the qualification that you are applying for or refer to the relevant faculty guide.

Prospective new students who have already completed their Diploma (Dip) studies at Nelson Mandela University or at another tertiary institution and opted to enter the work force, or take a gap year before commencing their Advanced Diploma (AdvDip) studies, are required to complete a new online application form, and submit a certified copy of their ID, academic record and certificate of conduct, along with any other documentation required in order for their application to be considered. Applications close 3 August 2020 and no application fee is required. Please also review the faculty prospectus for the admission requirements related to your field of study prior to applying. Late applications may be considered after this date, if there is still space available in the course you wish to apply for, and on academic merit until 30 September 2020
