Admissions and Registrations Centre Manager, Sonja Swanich advised applicants to avoid submitting their applications unless they are 100 percent certain that they meet the entrance requirements (validate against 2022 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.”
