This post contains information about the UWC Eligibility Requirements for the academic year 2024–2025.

To enroll in the specific course you desire at UWC, you may need to fulfill different eligibility criteria. However, a high school diploma or its equivalent is typically a requirement for the majority of UWC courses. Additionally, possessing a valid passport or visa for your home country is usually mandatory for enrollment in most UWC courses.

Here are the general admission requirements for UWC:

  • Bachelor’s Programs: The minimum entrance requirement is the National Senior Certificate (NSC), as recognized by Umalusi. This should include four subjects chosen from the list of 20-credit NSC subjects (referred to as the “designated subject list”), with an achievement rating of 4 (Adequate achievement, 50-59 percent or better in each subject).
  • Diploma Admission Requirements: For admission to diploma programs, a National Senior Certificate is required, as verified by Umalusi, with a minimum accomplishment level of 3 (moderate achievement, 40–49 percent) or above in four acceptable NSC 20-credit subjects.
  • Higher Certificates Entry Requirements: The absolute minimum requirement for admission to higher certificates is a National Senior Certificate from Umalusi.

The Point System To determine how many points applicants receive for admission to a degree- and diploma-granting programs, UWC will use a weighted system, as explained below:

NSC Level Percentage Points for English (*) Points for Maths or Maths Lit Points for Life Orientation Points for each Other Subject
8 90-100% 15 15 3 8
7 80-89% 13 13 3 7
6 70-79% 11 11 2 6
5 60-69% 9 9 2 5
4 50-59% 7 7 2 4
3 40-49% 5 5 1 3
2 30-39% 3 3 1 2
1 20-29% 1 1 1 1
less than 20% 0 0 0 0

(*) – “English” can be interpreted as either a first language or a second language in this context; second additional languages would fall under the heading of “other subjects.”
