How to apply to study at the University of Johannesburg for 2012.
The University of Johannesburg (UJ) is currently taking applications from prospective students who would like to pursue their studies at the University in 2012.
Once prospective students verified whether UJ offers the programme they wish to enroll for, they can apply to the University within the application period for admission, pertaining to that study programme. The application deadlines vary for different UJ’s programmes. Most applications close on the last Friday of October 2011. The exceptions include Health Sciences programmes, BEd (Educational Psychology) and MEd (Educational Psychology), which close on the last Friday of July 2011. Law programmes, International students and Accommodation applications close on the last Friday of August 2011 and Economic and Financial Sciences programmes close on the last Friday of September 2011.
All prospective students – students who have not been registered with UJ for formal study before – must apply to study at the University. The prospective student will receive the relevant status depending on whether they are admitted, conditionally admitted or turned down.
The application process is only a pre-registration process that enables the University to evaluate whether or not the prospective student meets the requirements for study at UJ. If they do not apply to study, this evaluation process cannot take place and they will not be able to register at UJ for the 2012 academic year. Note that the minimum admission point score (APS) does not guarantee a place at UJ.
The University will inform the prospective students in writing whether or not their application for admission was approved or turned down. There is also a facility on the UJ website to check the status of applications. Successful applicants will be informed when to register in January 2012.
