Detail about how to apply

When you apply for admission to the University you are admitted to a particular Faculty of the University and this is determined by the degree for which you wish to read. Your first step in applying for admission to the University is to decide which degree you wish to take. Refer to the Curriculum Selection section and the Faculty information to see which degrees are offered.
Your application will only be considered for admission to the University if you qualify for Bachelor’s degree study AND you satisfy the faculty requirements. To qualify for a Bachelor’s pass status, learners are required to take seven subjects, four of which are compulsory (two languages, Life Orientation, and either Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy) and three of the learner’s own choice from the subjects on offer at the school.
Special merit awards are automatically (you do not apply for this) made by the University to eligible students enrolling for the first time for an undergraduate degree. The awards, ranging from R32 900 to the Full tuition fee, are based on the final National Senior Certificate examination results. Should the student withdraw from Rhodes University during the academic year, the merit award will be reduced on a pro-rata basis.
In order to qualify for one of these awards a student would have to obtain at least 47 admission points in the National Senior Certificate examination. Please note that International Students are not eligible for merit awards.
