Prospective students, with an NSC, who wish to gain entry to any undergraduate programme at the University of Limpopo, should comply with the following:

  • Life Orientation with an achievement level of at least three (3).
  • Aligned with the language policy of the university, English as a language of learning and teaching with an achievement level of at least three (3).

1.2 Matriculation Certificate (prior 2008)

  • Students, who successfully completed Grade 12 before 2008, can apply for admission to the University with the normal Grade 12 Senior Certificate with full university exemption by converting their grade symbols to an APS.

1.3 National Certificate (Vocational)

  • Students who have successfully completed a National Certificate Vocational NC(V) Level 4 qualification will require the following and will be subject to Faculty Admission Specifications and Placement Tests:
  • NC(V) level 4 certificate with 3 fundamental subjects 60% (Life Orientation included) and 4 relevant vocational subjects at 70% for degree programmes.
  • NC(V) level 4 certificate with 3 fundamental subjects 50% (Life Orientation included) and 3 compulsory vocational subjects at 60% for diploma programmes.

1.4   The Admission Point Score (APS) system

The system is a simple calculation, using your NSC or Grade 12 university exemption results, which can be done by any prospective student to determine if he/she meets the minimum requirements to gain entry into:

  • The University of Limpopo and
  • A specific programme of choice offered by a Faculty within the University.

Meeting the minimum APS for a particular programme does not, however, guarantee admission.

The calculation is done by the addition of the achievement levels in six (6) recognised 20 credit subjects as stipulated by specific requirements of the Faculties. Achievement levels are as follows (Note Life Orientation is not used in the APS calculation):
