Health and Wellness Sciences

Graduates of the Faculty of Health and Wellness Sciences play a key-role in the South African health sector and boasts state-of-the-art facilities where students receive hands-on training.

If a qualification that you would like to study does not appear, then please contact the department (details below) for more information.

CPUT is in the process of introducing new qualifications and phasing-out old ones (such as the Diploma is replacing the National Diploma, and the Advanced Diploma replacing the BTech), as required by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training. The new qualifications are introduced to align with the new Higher Education qualification sub-Framework (HEQSF) as Gazetted by the South African Department of Education on 2 August 2013. This is a requirement placed on all Higher Education institutions in an attempt to keep the curriculum relevant.

The last year Universities are allowed to register new students for the old qualifications is 2019, however, students who are currently in the process of completing these non-HEQSF aligned qualifications will be allowed sufficient time to complete in line with the Faculty rules and regulations.

Some qualifications have already been approved, some are in the final stages of approval and some are in the draft stage, and these qualifications will be loaded onto the Applications System as soon as they are fully approved.

The benchmarking process that took place during the development of these new qualifications was to ensure that the curriculum offered at CPUT can be directly compared to that of other institutions; not only nationally, but also internationally.
