How to apply

FIRST YEAR ALTERNATIVE APPLICATION SUBMISSIONS

Meeting the minimum requirements is not a guarantee of acceptance into a programme. The competition for space in higher education institutions is great.

If your applications have been declined, you can sign up online at cach.cas.ac.za. Applicants can also find out more on their Facebook page, which is CACH_SA.

CACH 2023 will provide unsuccessful applicants with referral to career development services and where possible, an opportunity to access spaces still available within the PSET system at universities, TVET colleges or in SETA learnerships, without having to travel to institutions to try and find a space.

It also works to ensure that students do not become victims of bogus institutions. The CACH service presents the opportunity to simplify the process to take advantage of available opportunities in the PSET sector. By using the CACH service, students will avoid crowding at institutions.

Also refer to the detailed 2023 CACH DHET Circular below.
