Applying to further education requires you to tick a lot of boxes, making it quite a daunting task! Apart from considering the career fields you want to enter and finding relevant courses that can lead you there (use our 4 Tips to Prepare for Further Education to make sure you make this decision in an informed way), you also have to make sure you meet the admission requirements, submit any additional documentation, apply for bursaries or loans, find out more about campus accomodation and write the National Benchmark Tests.
Make use of our Application Checklist to be sure that you have everything in place:
When you’ve ticked off every one of the 9 above mentioned tasks, it is important that you do not just sit back and wait! Remember that your grade 12 (NSC) examinations are just as important as the grade 11 results you applied with. Furthermore, if you are accepted for more than one of your options, you should keep on exploring these fields to make an informed decision regarding which way to go.
