The prerequisites for enrolling at the University of the Free State include:

  • Having an NSC, NCV, or an equivalent qualification that qualifies you for degree programs, such as a Bachelor’s degree.
  • Meeting all the prerequisites for your chosen program, as meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission due to limited spots available.
  • Attaining a minimum proficiency level of 4 (50%) in English or Afrikaans, the languages of instruction for certain programs.
  • Meeting specific subject requirements and achieving a minimum grade to enroll in particular university modules. For example, if you want to major in physics and take engineering courses, you need a grade point average of 70% in grade 12 mathematics. Refer to the faculty-specific admission requirements for the list of prerequisite subjects and proficiency standards for each program.

Important information for all students:

  • Apply as early as possible since there are limited spots available, and missing deadlines can result in rejection or inability to register.
  • Academic achievement is highly valued, and higher AP scores increase the chances of selection and admission, but meeting minimum requirements doesn’t guarantee admission.
  • Submit a complete application with all required supporting documents to avoid delays.
  • Transferring students need to include their official study record and conduct certificate.
  • International students must provide additional documents, including a conditional exemption certificate issued by the Matriculation Board.
  • Conditional admission may be offered based on Grade 11 or equivalent results, but not all programs in the Faculty of Health Sciences provide this option.
  • Final admission to the desired program is determined based on Grade 12 results, and you will be notified of the decision after the release of those results.
  • Your admission point (AP) total is calculated based on the NSC achievement scale, with points awarded for certain achievement levels.

Before applying, carefully review the admission requirements for your chosen program, and note that achievement levels below 30% in academic subjects do not earn points. Life Orientation at achievement level 5 (60%) or higher receives one point when calculating the AP score for admission.

NSC LevelUFS AP
7 (90%–100%)8
7 (80%–89%)7
6 (70%–79%)6
5 (60%–69%)5
4 (50%–59%)4
3 (40%–49%)3
2 (30%–39%)2
1 (0%–29%)
To calculate your AP, you can use the following example:
For five (5) academic subjects, you must obtain a level 5 (60%)5 x 5 = 25
For one (1) further academic subject, you must obtain a level 4 (50%)1 x 4 = 4
For Life Orientation, a level of 5 (60%) or higher to score 1 point1 x 1 = 1
UFS overall AP score= 30
