How do I apply?
Complete a prescribed NMMU application form. Include certified copies of your identity document and school reports. Ensure that you meet the minimum academic admission requirements or that your APS falls within the required testing band before submitting your application form. Provide proof that you have paid the prescribed application fee. Get your application form to the Admissions Office before the closing date. Once you’ve submitted your form, you may be required to write an access assessment test. Admission or acceptance is subject to meeting the minimum admission requirements, outcome of the access assessment test and the Admission Point Score (APS) as determined by the faculty. Submitting a completed application form does not imply that you have been accepted as a student, or that you may register. All applicants will be notified, in writing, of the outcome of their application. Below you will find the minimum statutory admission requirements based on the type of Grade 12 certificate you have. Faculties may also require additional admission requirements for a specific qualification.

Entrance requirements are met by obtaining a rating of at least 4 (50-59%) or better in English, Afrikaans or isiXhosa as a first additional language level for higher certificate and diploma entry and a 5 (60-69%) for degree entry.
