Matriculants and other prospective students who are eager to kick-start their careers are showing huge interest in studying at CPUT.

With the theme, Building South Africa’s future by creating yours, applications for admission to study at CPUT in 2021 opened on 8 June and the university has already received more than 21 957 application choices from 9672 applicants.

Whether you aspire to work in emergency medical care, teaching, nursing, engineering or journalism, the institution has you covered with numerous career-focused courses to choose from. The university has six faculties offering more than 80 undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the fields of Applied Sciences, Business and Management Sciences, Education and Social Sciences, Engineering and the Built Environment, Informatics and Design, as well as Health and Wellness Sciences.

The admission requirements for current Grade 12 learners will be based on their final Grade 11 marks only, together with any additional programme specific requirements (where applicable). Final acceptance to the programme will still be based on the final Grade 12 results.

Admissions and Registrations Centre Manager, Sonja Swanich advised the applicants to only submit their applications if they are 100 percent certain that they meet the entrance requirements (validate against 2021 prospectus), and that they have obtained all the necessary supporting documentation as outlined on the CPUT website.

“Always submit your first choice as your first career choice, followed by your second and third career choices. Always submit your online application together with required documentation,” Swanich said.

She urged the prospective students to first read all the relevant application-related information as outlined in each step.  “Once you are certain of which programmes you are interested in applying for...first check for any programme specific requirements as outlined [on the website].”

  • Read the online step-by-step application guides obtainable from the CPUT website
  • Submit your application as soon as possible and avoid last-minute submissions.  The demand for access to CPUT is higher in comparison with the number of applications allowed into the programmes (as controlled by the enrolment targets)
